AirDrop communication protocol — great and easy way to transfer files, Photo, contacts and t.P. between Apple devices.

There is only one problem: sometimes airdrop is not displayed in «curtain» iOS, so with all the desire to send content to another iPhone / iPad / Mac fails. What to do?

In this instruction we proceed from that, That your gadget works on the latest version of iOS. If not — go to Settings, select Highlights -> Software update and install Apple-offered software. It’s worth it — sometimes in the new version of iOS, the company corrects the previous bugs and improves collaboration with other devices. Ideally, the newest software version should be installed on the transmitting, and on the receiving devices.

If the software update on your gadgets did not fix the problem with AirDrop, do the following:

  1. Open iOS Settings and go to the General section.
  2. Go to the Restrictions section, click on Enable Restrictions and create a 4-digit code (either enter an existing one, if you used this option before).
  3. Find AirDrop in the list of restrictions and make sure, that the service is on (the slider is green).
  4. Exit the settings and open the Control Point (lower «curtain») again. The AirDrop section will appear. Now everything should work without any complaints.
