In this video, I’ll show you how to use the new AirDrop Nearby Sharing Mode on iOS 17. It’s a game-changer! Learn how to bring two phones close together and witness the cool animation as you effortlessly share photos and more. This is the latest and most convenient way to AirDrop between phones using the new AirDrop on iOS 17. Join me for this exciting tutorial and unlock the full potential of seamless phone-to-phone sharing.

AirDrop in iOS 17 has completely changed how it works. Yes, you can still do it the old-fashioned way by pressing the share button and choosing a device, but it’s now so easy to simply hold two iPhones head to head, so top to top, and it will share your file between them, almost like magic. All you need to do on the iPhone that’s sending the file, be it a photo or a video, is to have that open on your screen. So, I’ve got a picture here with my cat open on the screen, ready to go, and while I bring Sapphy’s phone up to the top, this happens.

That sound effect means the phones are connected. The file is sent across from one to the other, and now it’s visible on both iPhones, just like that. You don’t have to accept or receive a file, because it knows if your phones are touching, then probably you want that file anyway. But of course, if you take your phone away, it will cancel it before it gets sent, and that’s another new update to iOS 17. And there are dozens and dozens more.
