Additional Information

You may adjust the AirDrop setting in the Control Center in addition to the way we did it above in the Settings app.

Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to access the Control Center, then tap and hold on the upper-left square with the Wi-Fi and Airplane Mode icons to activate them.

Then, pick the AirDrop button that appears, and then select the desired AirDrop configuration.

The AirDrop settings are as follows:

Receiving Off – this will prevent anyone from attempting to send you files via AirDrop.

Contacts Only – only people in your contact list will be able to send you files via AirDrop.

Everyone for 10 Minutes – when this is enabled, anyone within range of you will be able to send you files.

If you are unable to receive AirDrop files, ensure that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both turned on. Also, ensure that your Personal Hotspot is not activated.


AirDrop is a really handy iPhone function that is one of the greatest methods to share files with others.

This is especially true if you are attempting to give someone a large number of photos or a video file.

However, knowing how to adjust the AirDrop settings can be important if you are having issues or strangers are attempting to send you files.

Our previous guide on how to enable or disable AirDrop on iPhone 14 demonstrated two methods for changing that setting on your device.
