How do I receive content with AirDrop?

AirDrop iOS 9

AirDrop is a quick and easy way to transfer files between two iOS devices. Once content is shared using AirDrop the recipient is automatically prompted with a preview of the file. There are steps involved to make sure the process is set up and ready to go.

1. Make sure that Personal Hotspot is off on both the sending and receiving device.
2. Turn on AirDrop in the Control Center and select Everyone or Contacts Only. When using contacts only, both devices must be signed into iCloud.
3. Once configured, have the sender share their content with AirDrop.
4. An alert will appear when the file is shared. Tap Accept to transfer the file to your iOS device.
