Will iPhone ever support Bluetooth file transfer?

I know there are many ways to transfer files (Photos, Contacts, etc.) but do you think we will ever be able to do so over Bluetooth on Apple devices? Do you see any benefit?

- Question from Eskemo 30

Bluetooth, a short-range wireless connection, is used to exchange data between fixed and mobile devices over a short distance. So you may wonder how to transfer music from iPhone to iPhone with Bluetooth. If you have just switched from an Android phone to iPhone, you may answer like this: Turn on the Bluetooth on both phones and connect each other, then you can send songs between phones via Bluetooth. It’s alright but just for Android phones.


But do you know how to transfer music from iPhone to iPhone using Bluetooth? In fact, for copyright reasons, it’s not accessible for iPhone users to transfer music from iPhone to iPhone via Bluetooth. For iPhone users, the tool for transferring music from iPhone to iPhone via Bluetooth is called AirDrop.

Part 1. How to transfer music from iPhone to iPhone with AirDrop

Based on a Bluetooth connection and a stable Wi-Fi, AirDrop provides you with an easy and fast process to send music from one iPhone to a nearby iPhone. However, AirDrop can only allow you to transfer songs one by one. If you want to transfer music in bulk quickly, the alternative mentioned in part 2 is a good choice. Here are tutorials on how to transfer music from iPhone to iPhone via AirDrop.

Step 1. Slide up from the screens of both iPhones to go to Control Center > light Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirDrop > Choose Contacts Only or Everyone.

Tip: Choosing contacts only or Everyone depends on whether the target iPhone is in the contact of the source iPhone. If it does, choose Contacts only. If not, choose Everyone.

Step 2. On the source iPhone, open Apple Music to opt for your desired songs or albums and hit Share > touch three-dot item and tap Share Song.

Step 3. Hit the contact that you want to transfer music to > Click iPhone to send songs.

Step 4. On the target iPhone, press Accept to transfer music as the screen pops up iPhone would like to share.......

Tip: If you have other music to transfer, repeat the steps. And AirDrop only sends the link of music instead of music files.
