How to use AirDrop for iOS: The ultimate guide

AirDrop began as an OS X Lion feature that let Mac users easily beam files to each other over an ad-hoc Wi-Fi connection. After several attempts to bring it to iOS were rejected for not being accessible enough to mainstream customers, a new version was developed specifically iOS 7 that's simpler and more obvious. Unfortunately, despite sharing the same name, the iOS version uses a different protocol from the Mac version, and that means — for now — it can only be used to send data between iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. If that's all you want to do, whether you're in the same office, school, home, park, plane, or anywhere within Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range, AirDrop is reasonably quick and incredibly convenient.
