AirDrop is a great program that can let you immediately share photos you have taken on your iPhone with other AirDrop users nearby or with other devices you own. For example, you could share a group photo you just took with others that were in the photo or you could send the photo to your nearby iMac. This feature requires users to be logged into iCloud. In addition, you can only share with devices that are located within 25 feet, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth must be turned on.

How to AirDrop photos from your iPhone begins with making sure the program is activated. To set it up, follow these steps:

1. Open the Control Center.
