Ways to share photos and videos using AirDrop without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth


AirDrop has always been a really convenient way to share files with others using Apple devices. However, this feature has been a bit limited, as users have to be within Wi-Fi and Bluetooth range to share photos, videos, or any other file.
With the introduction of iOS 17.1, AirDrop capabilities have been further enhanced with the ability to use mobile data to transfer files. This means that users can continue AirDrop transfers seamlessly even when they are outside of a Wi-Fi network, ensuring an uninterrupted experience. File sharing. 
How to share files using AirDrop mobile data 
Here are the steps you need to follow to share files without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth
1- Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2- Click on “General”.
3- Scroll down and tap “AirDrop”.
4- Under the Out of Range section, toggle the switch next to Mobile Data Usage.
5- Repeat this process on the recipient's device to ensure both devices are configured for mobile AirDrop transfers.
6- Initiate AirDrop transfers via mobile phone.
7- Once you enable mobile data for AirDrop, start the AirDrop transfer process as you normally would.
If you move out of Wi-Fi range during the transfer, the file will continue to transfer seamlessly using mobile data, provided both devices have a strong mobile connection. 
Transfer speeds may be a little slower when using cellular data, but the convenience of uninterrupted file sharing outweighs any potential slowdown. 
Things to take into account 
Pay attention to your mobile data usage, as larger files will consume more data. 
If you have an unlimited data plan, you can enjoy mobile AirDrop transfers without worrying about data charges. 
If you have a limited data plan, consider limiting portable AirDrop to smaller files or use Wi-Fi whenever possible. 
Your iPhone must be running iOS 17.1 or later.
