Part 1. How to Share Personal Hotspot on iPhone 

If you want to share cellular internet from your iPhone to other devices, you can follow the steps below to do it. Before getting started, a couple of things should be noted.

  • Personal Hotspot is not available with all carriers. 
  • Additional fees may apply.
  • The number of devices that can connect to your Personal Hotspot at one time depends on your carrier and iPhone model.

Step 1. Go to the Settings app > General > Personal Hotspot, enable it.

Step 2. On the other device, go to the Settings > Wi-Fi, then choose your iPhone from the list of available networks.

Step 3. If asked, enter the password of Wi-Fi.

Part 2. How to Share Data between iPhone and iPhone (iPad) via AirDrop

Step 1. Activate AirDrop on iPhone or iPad

AirDrop can be activated on both your iPhone and iPad. It is absolute that AirDrop needs to be activated on both iOS devices between which files are to be shared.

Open the control center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Then open the WLAN menu in the Control Center with 3D-Touch and make sure that WLAN and Bluetooth are activated. As soon as the menu opens, you can activate AirDrop.


Step 2. Choose the target device

Now you can choose which people you want to share files with, either only with your contacts or with everyone.

Step 3. Share files with AirDrop

As already mentioned, you can share everything that has a Share button. For example, let's take a photo that we want to transfer from an iPhone to an iPad.

To do this, we first open the photo on our iPhone and tap the Share button in the bottom left corner.


It may last a moment before the other iOS device (or its user's name) appears in AirDrop. Touch the other device to send the photo or another file.


On the other device - in our case a second iPhone - there is a notice that someone is sharing a photo with us. After clicking Accept, the photo will be received and then displayed in the Photos App.

Part 3. How to Share Data between iPhone and Computer

AirDrop only works between Apple devices. However, if you want to exchange files with a Windows PC, you have to use third-party providers, for example, EaseUS MobiMover Free, if you don't want to use iTunes. MobiMover serves to transfer files between two iOS devices (iPhone/iPad in iOS 8 or later) or between an iOS device and the computer. Photos, videos, music, ringtones, voice memos, contacts, messages, and more can all be transferred to or from your iPhone using MobiMover.

Now, click the button below to safely download and install EaseUS MobiMover Free on your PC, then follow the steps to transfer files from PC to iPhone to have a try.

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer and tap "Trust" on your device. Start EaseUS MobiMover and navigate to the "PC to Phone" mode. Click "Select Files" to transfer data from computer to iPhone without iTunes.
