- First, you have to open the image you want to transfer on one iOS device.
- Then you can use a three-finger pinch gesture to “pick up” that photo. (Shown below.)

- As soon as you “drop” the picture, you should see a confirmation dialog that the image is being copied over. It’s downright magical to see it in action.
This means you can only share photos between your personal devices. You cannot use this method to send images to a friend’s iPhone or iPad. At least not yet.
