Apple has decided to simplify sharing photos, contacts, music and between two iPhones! If your iPhone is running iOS 7, make sure you take advantage of AirDrop. You can additionally transmit videos, photos and even music on Apple TV with AirPlay. To learn how this works, follow these explanations.
- 1Enable AirDrop
- To use AirDrop, you must enable dragging down your "Control Center" and pressing the button.
- Immediately, a list of options will appear, allowing you to turn it off and share your data only with a list of your contacts or with everyone. Choose the option that suits you.
- 2Share a photo with AirDrop
- Open the camera app of your iPhone 5S.
- Take a photo or select a photo already taken, and then select the person to whom you want to send the photo.
- Then tap on the round avatar to send the photo.
- The person then receives a notification of receipt of the picture, and has to press "Accept" to receive.
- 3Use AirPlay
- Connect your iPhone to your Apple TV, open the "Control Center" and press the AirPlay button to activate the feature. When the list of devices available appears, select "Apple TV", and then press "Done".
- Now when you use the photos, videos and Safari applications, they will be distributed directly to your Apple TV!

I don't have Apple TV but I continue to receive emails about it; also I am constantly locked out of my Apple ID?
I know my password to the Apple ID but it is continually reset. Are the Airplay, AirDrop and Apple TV apps added to settings automatically? Because without being able to access my Apple ID I can't add the apps they only appear in settings. I have tried: Resetting network; Apple ID recovery; creating new Apple ID; purchased new phone; changed mobile carriers. I think it was caused by: I am not a technical person; I do read and try to follow instructions
