How to Share pho­tos and fold­ers


Select your pho­tos

In Pho­tos, select some pic­tures, then open the Share sheet. The top row shows nearby Ap­ple de­vices. If none are listed, check the re­cip­i­ent is set to re­ceive from con­tacts or ev­ery­one (in Con­trol Cen­tre), and has Per­sonal Hotspot turned off.

Send the pho­tos

To share us­ing Air­Drop, tap the de­vice’s icon in the top row. Here we’ve shared with our iMac. A blue progress line goes around the icon while send­ing, then changes to “Sent” as con­fir­ma­tion. Other peo­ple have to ac­cept re­ceipt.

3 Use ex­ter­nal apps

iCloud can share in­di­vid­ual files, but it can’t do it for whole fold­ers. If you want to do that you’ll need to in­stall the app for a third-party ser­vice such as Drop­box, which in­te­grates with iOS’s Files app for easy ac­cess from the side­bar.
