Use AirDrop on iPad to send items to nearby devices

  1. Open the item, then tap the Share button, Share, AirDrop, the More options button, or another button that displays the app’s sharing options.
  2. Tap the AirDrop icon in the row of share options, then tap the profile picture of a nearby AirDrop user.

If the person doesn’t appear as a nearby AirDrop user, ask them to open Control Center on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and allow AirDrop to receive items. To send to someone on a Mac, ask them to allow themselves to be discovered in AirDrop in the Finder.

To send an item using a method other than AirDrop, choose the method—for example, Messages or Mail—from the row of sharing options (options vary by app). Siri may also suggest ways to share with the people you know by displaying their profile pictures and icons representing sharing methods.

You can also use AirDrop to securely share app and website passwords with someone using an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or a Mac. See Share passwords securely with AirDrop on iPad.
