Not only China! iPhone AirDrop “open to everyone for 10 minutes” new feature launched globally: users all over the world have used it- TechNave 中文版

earlier,iOS 16.1.1When it was launched, AirPods restrictions were added in China. In other words, after users in China upgrade to iOS 16.1.1, the AirDop function will be automatically turned off after 10 minutes after it is opened to “everyone”.

Originally this feature was limited to China, but the latest iOS 16.2 RC. In the update details, this “feature” has been introduced, which means that after iPhone/iPad users around the world upgrade to iOS 16.2/iPadOS 16.2, everyone can use this feature.


Previously, Apple’s AirDrop had three different options, with “Receive Off” completely turning off someone’s ability to AirDrop you, and “Contacts Only” meaning only people saved in your Contacts could. Send stuff to you with AirDrop.

There’s also an “Everyone” option that allows anyone nearby to send you files, photos, or other content via AirDrop. This means that anyone around, whether they know them or not, can see your iPhone as an AirDrop destination. This also makes it easy for users to spread spam in crowded areas such as shopping malls and airports.
