Airdrop is a great feature that you can use to easily share documents, images and many other things between your Apple devices via Wi-Fi. This method is very easy to transfer files and you can do it very quickly. And the most important thing here is that this will never reduce the quality of your photos or files.

When transferring files through Airdrop, the concerned person gets a list of nearby devices on his phone screen and sends it to the desired device. If you don’t have a recognizable name, you can easily create one. And you can easily change the Airdrop name on your iPhone. It enables you to recognize yourself quickly or make others laugh by using a funny name.
