One of the new features of iOS 7 is the ability to send photos, contacts and other information from one iOS device to one or more other devices through AirDrop. AirDrop works on:

  • iPhone 5 or later
  • iPad (fourth generation)
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch (fifth generation)

It’s surprisingly easy to use. In this short video, we’ll show how to set up AirDrop and use it to send a note between iOS 7 devices. Once you have that down, you’ll be able to use any app that supports AirDrop, including Photos, Safari, Contacts, Notes, Reminders and Camera+. For troubleshooting information, be sure to check Apple’s Support Knowledge Base page for AirDrop.

As with our other video tips, this one can be resized to full-screen for easier viewing.
