2. Problem Locating Another iPhone When You AirDrop?

There will be instances where you are not able to share files because you cannot see the other person's iPhone while using AirDrop.

Don't panic; these concerns may be solved with some simple troubleshooting.

Maybe it is just distance that is the problem. If you are not near enough to your sender or receiver, you may not be able to transfer files successfully. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi can only reach a specific range, so if you're far away, you will lose your connection.

Check if the person you're sharing with has AirDrop receiving settings that are set to 'Contacts Only'. If you are in their Contacts list, you must provide your Apple ID information in your contact card before continuing with the process.

Otherwise, have them set their AirDrop receiving setting to 'Everyone' to bypass this problem.iPhone backup extractor free:The best iPhone Backup Extractor software to extract photos, text messages, contacts, voice memos, note, WhatsApp, Viber and etc from iPhone/iPad backup.

3. What Can You AirDrop from iPhone to iPhone?

With AirDrop, there is an extensive list of files you can send to your family, friends, and acquaintances.

Most users usually send photos and videos, but the list is not limited to those. As long as you both have an iPhone, then feel free to share almost everything under the sun. Files include the following:

  •     Photos
  •     Videos
  •     Contacts
  •     Passbook passes
  •     Notes
  •     Documents and PDFs
  •     Mail attachments
  •     Items stored in Files app
  •     Voice Memos
  •     Web URLs Links to App pages (App Store)
  •     Maps directions.

AirDrop does have its restrictions – it doesn't support messages and popular 3rd-party social apps such as iMessage or WhatsApp from iPhone to iPhone.

There are two solutions.

If the sender's privacy is not of high concern and you want to share all the content, then you can forward your message and send it directly to your recipient via text or any third-party direct messaging app.

Using AirDrop, you can create a file from 'Notes' or 'Documents,' then type the message out there and share it immediately.

Not ideal is it? However, there is a much more straightforward and user-friendly way to achieve this through a third party app.
