Apples iOS 162 Update AirDrops Privacy

Apple updated AirDrop on June 5, 2023, with the release of iOS 16.2.

The update aims to prevent unwanted content requests by automatically reverting the setting to "Contacts Only" after 10 minutes.

The change was implemented in response to backlash over recent restrictions impacting AirDrop usage in China.

 AirDrop is a wireless sharing feature that allows users to share photos, videos, websites, locations, and more.

It operates by utilizing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections between nearby Apple devices.

To use AirDrop, users need to be signed in with the same Apple ID.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth must be enabled on both devices

Adjusting AirDrop settings is easy, and users can do so by navigating to Settings > General > AirDrop.

The update enhances privacy and provides a more streamlined experience for users.

With AirDrop, sharing content with friends and family becomes quick and hassle-free.
