How to use AirDrop on your iPhone and iPad to share photos, videos, contacts, and links
Ever wondered what AirDrop is and what its purpose is whenever you swipe up your iPhone's or iPad's Control Center? If you have – worry not, for you're far from the only one. According to Google's just released "Year in Search" breakdown of what we ask its search engine for the most, "How to AirDrop" was at the very top of the how-to section throughout 2014. We thought we'd help clear it up, because it does need some clearing up.

While AirDrop is very well thought-out on the whole, there's one part of the process that causes all of this searching online to make sense of it – when you activate it, absolutely nothing happens. At least it doesn't look like it. But the truth is that turning on AirDrop is alike to turning on Bluetooth – it gets you online, at least as far as other AirDrop-compatible devices are concerned.
