AirDrop is the quickest and easiest way to wirelessly share documents and files with people nearby. Simply enable AirDrop in Control Centre, select a photo, video or document, tap the Share icon and choose who you want to share with. And just like that, the file appears on their device. It’s a lot easier than digging around for a USB stick.


AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream what’s on your iPad Air 2 via Apple TV to your HDTV and speakers — without having to log in to a network. Or you can mirror exactly what’s on your display and see it on the big screen. Whether you’re in the boardroom, the classroom or the living room, you’ll be able to share everything — from a business presentation to a history lesson to a holiday video.
