If you are using an iPhone, iPad or any Apple product then you can transfer files between your iOS devices or Mac using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connections. There are two software applications used to transfer files between one iOS device to another, they are:
- AirDrop: Used to transfer files between nearby devices and computers.
- Handoff: Used to start working on a file on one device and continue working on it from another.
- AirBlue Sharing: Used to share files with the local devices. It allows you to send or receive from any Bluetooth device (even Android).
Following is a step by step process given to send a file via Bluetooth on iPhone 4 using AirBlue Sharing:
- Once you install AirBlue Sharing on your device, reboot it.
- When you want to receive a file, you need to just double click on the status bar.
- AirBlue Sharing will listen to the incoming file transfers in 120seconds. (You can also change the configuration in Settings of AirBlue Sharing & then you will see the Bluetooth options in Photos, Music, videos in your iPhone).
- Now you can Choose Bluetooth & start sharing with your friends.
You need to just keep in mind that before you start receiving a file via Bluetooth, activate the application. Go to 'Photos' or 'Music' & send any files. It will immediately ask you to Activate. Click Activate & you are all set to transfer any files via Bluetooth.
