The iPhone is a smartphone equipped with Internet and multimedia. It preinstalled a variety of connectivity options, such as cellular data, WiFi and Bluetooth. WiFi and Bluetooth are used for wirelessly connecting iPhone to other devices equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth. Before iPhone can connect other device via Bluetooth, the Bluetooth function must be turned on and the connection between the two devices must be authorized.
In this article, we will show how to turn on the Bluetooth on iPhone.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM band from 2400–2480 MHz) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security. Created by telecom vendor Ericsson in 1994, it was originally conceived as a wireless alternative to RS-232 data cables. It can connect several devices, overcoming problems of synchronization. —Wikipedia Bluetooth

Bluetooth as a wireless technology is becoming very popular among a large number of devices. Apple iPhone comes with integrated Bluetooth as well, which means you can conveniently and easily use a wireless headset with your phone, once you set it up. But Bluetooth provides a limited range of wireless connectivity. If there is a little longer distance between iPhone and another device, is there some wireless method to connect the two together? The answer is positive after iPhone WiFi Transfer has come out.
The iPhone WiFi Transfer can upload and download photos and videos between multiple devices, such as between iPhone/iPad/iPod and computer, between an iOS device and another (iPhone to iPad, iPad to iPad, iPhone to iPhone, etc.). There is no need of any USB cables, but iPhone and another device must be connected to the same WiFi network. It is available on the App Store. This app is much more convenient to transfer photos and videos compared with the traditional wireless ways.
