Use AirDrop to share and receive photos, documents and more with other Apple devices that are nearby. You can put your AirDrop receiving setting to Contacts Only or Receiving Off at any time to control who can see your device and send you content in AirDrop. If the person you're sharing content with is in your Contacts, you'll see an image with their name.
Hey, our system thinks you're a bot.
When someone shares something with you using AirDrop, you see an alert with a preview. You can tap Accept or Decline. If you tap Accept, the AirDrop will come through within the same app it was sent from. For example, photos appear in the Photos app and websites open in Safari. App links open in the App Store so you can download or purchase the app. If you AirDrop something to yourself, like a photo from your iPhone to your Mac, you won't see an option to Accept or Decline — it'll be automatically sent to your device.
