Have you noticed that some or all of your iMessages, sent through AirDrop, haven’t been received or sent? It’s part of another glitch in Apple’s iOS 7, which hasn’t been fixed yet. So, if your son, who is away at college, isn’t getting back to you, maybe it’s not his fault – maybe.
To get around this problem, use your standard text message function, not AirDrop, which seemed to work once or twice, but now doesn’t work at all.
How do you even access AirDrop? Well, for future reference, when Apple fixes the problem, AirDrop can be accessed when you want to share a picture, video, etc. via iMessage, iMail, iCloud, etc.
For example, when you open your photo gallery, AirDrop automatically appears. When you click a photo (or multiple photos) to send, you are given options as to how you want to share it (them). For more information about AirDrop, click the following link: http://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/
There are other glitches with this iOS, such as schools not being able to monitor iPads distributed to their students – as planned. This is great for the students, but not so great for the teachers and the administrations involved.
So, with that said, stay tuned, monitor your messaging, use regular texting, and wait, with the rest of us, for Apple’s iOS 7.0.3.
iPads and iPhones can be purchased at the Apple Store, Westfarms Mall, Farmington, CT, and your local Best Buy (Simsbury and Newington). These devices can also be purchased through ATT, Verizon, and T Mobile.
