Folks, do you have an iPhone and want to transfer/sync your Photos to another iDevice?. Using Airdrop, you can transfer all your photos to another iDevice, especially an iPad. This post explains the processes involved.

It is a pretty easy and quick process, all you have to do is to follow these steps gradually and carefully.

Open the Control Center of your iPad

Do this by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.

Tap AirDrop

It’s located at the lower-left corner. If asked to turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, do so.

Tap Contacts Only

It’s at the centre of the pop-up menu.

Open the Photos app on your iPhone

It’s the white app with a multi-coloured flower icon.

Tap All Photos

It’s one of the albums likely in the upper-left corner.

Select a photo

Do this by tapping the photo you want to share.

Tap the “Share” button

It’s the rectangle that contains an upward-pointing arrow in the lower-left corner of the screen.

Select additional photos (optional)

Scroll left or right, through the photos at the top of the screen. And then tap the open circle in the corner of an image to select it.

  • Some users have had issues when trying to use AirDrop to transfer plenty pictures.

Tap on the name of your iPad

This will appear between the images at the top of the screen.

  • If you can’t find the iPad, ensure that the device is within a few feet and that AirDrop is enabled.
  • If asked to turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, do so.

View the picture(s) on your iPad

A message will pop-up saying that your iPhone is sharing a photo. As soon as the transfer is complete, Photos will open the picture(s) on your iPad.
