How To Enable AirDrop From Control Center And Use It On iOS 11 iPhone

With the release of Apple's next software version Apple made it possible to enable AirDrop on iOS 11 iPhone from Control Center. During its 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2017), Apple unveiled a new Control Center for iOS 11. Although it looks a bit overwhelming at first, the Control Center still has all of the same features and functionality.


But in this new design, some features have ended up reshuffled. For example, if you swipe up from the bottom of the screen to launch the Control Center, you won’t see the trusty AirDrop toggle anywhere. It’s there. It’s just hidden behind a new widget that’s entirely dedicated to toggles. Here’s how you can enable AirDrop on iOS 11 iPhone.


How To Enable AirDrop From Control Center On iOS 11 iPhone


Step 1: On the iOS 11 device swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the new Control Center.


Step 2: On the top-left corner you’ll see a box filled with the toggles for things like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If you have an iPhone 6s or higher, 3D Touch anywhere on that widget. If you have an older iPhone that doesn’t equiiped with 3D Touch features, tap and hold on that widget instead.


Step 3: The widget will expanded. Find the AirDrop toggle in the bottom-left side.


Step 4: Click on the AirDrop toggle and you’ll get to another pop up that will have the three options: Receiving Off, Contacts Only, and Everyone. Make your choice and you’ll be back to the Control Center screen.
