How to share your files and col­lab­o­rate

From files to pho­tos, iOS makes it in­cred­i­bly easy to share your stuff

Mac Format - - CONTENTS - Car­rie Mar­shall

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.
