How to share your files and collaborate
From files to photos, iOS makes it incredibly easy to share your stuff
If sharing is caring, then iOS cares a lot. It has lots of ways to share your stuff with other people and your other devices. It all starts with the Share sheet, which pops up whenever you tap the Share icon, or the word Share on some devices.
The sheet is context-sensitive, which means the available options change depending on what app you’re using, and it’s full of useful tools. For example, in Safari it doesn’t just enable you to share web pages, but also enables you to save a page as a PDF or request the desktop version of a mobile site.
As you’ll discover, you can share by email, messaging apps, wirelessly to another Apple device, and further afield using cloud storage services such as Dropbox.
In this tutorial we show you how to share files, photographs and web pages. If you want to share downloaded apps and purchases from the iTunes and App Stores, you can do that with Family Sharing – there’s an in-depth guide to that in MacFormat #330.
