Make sure AirDrop is compatible with your device

The first thing you need to do is check whether AirDrop is compatible with your device. Make sure your iPhone, iPad, or iPod are running iOS 7 or later. If you’re using a Mac, make sure it’s running OS X Yosemite or later.

Check your AirDrop visibility settings

Check your AirDrop visibility settings

You can set your AirDrop visibility on three modes: Everyone, Contacts Only, and Receiving Off. If your visibility is set to Everyone, there is nothing much you can do. You are already visible by other devices on the network. If your visibility is set to Contacts Only, only those devices whose phone numbers or emails are saved in your phone will be able to share stuff with you. If your visibility is set to Receiving Off, your device is practically invisible.

If you’re facing issues with AirDrop, set your visibility settings to Everyone. You can do this by going to Settings>General>AirDrop>Everyone.

Turn off AirDrop restrictions

If you cant access AirDrop at all, it is quite possible that you may have blocked it in Content and Privacy Restrictions. In order to unblock it, go to Settings>Screen Time>Content and Privacy Restrictions and enable AirDrop.

Check your Bluetooth and WiFi to fix AirDrop transfer failure

A stable Bluetooth and WiFi connection is necessary for AirDrop to function. Make sure both Bluetooth and WiFi are turned on. For WiFi go to Settings>Wifi and turn it on. For Bluetooth go to Settings>Bluetooth and turn it on.

Disable Personal Hotspot on your iPhone

As mentioned earlier, AirDrop requires Bluetooth and WiFi to function properly. Your Personal Hotspot also needs the WiFi to work. Both, Personal Hotspot and AirDrop cannot work at the same time. So, ensuring your Personal Hotspot is turned off is always a safe bet when you’re facing issues with AirDrop. In order to turn off your Personal Hotspot, go to Settings>Personal Hotspot and turn it off.

Bonus Tip

If none of the fixes mentioned above methods work on your phone, try restarting your device. If you want to make sure that your device is at fault, try using AirDrop on a third device. If the transfer isn’t successful, your device isn’t at fault. If your VPN is turned on, turn it off and try again.
