While you can directly share the files between different Android devices via Bluetooth and other methods, many people struggle to do it from an iOS device to Android phones. As a result, many file sharing apps are introduced to facilitate an easy transfer of files through different platforms, including iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and others.
But most applications tend to compress the files while sending them, which significantly reduces the quality. And when you are sharing stuff like photos and videos, quality is something that matters the most. However, that's not the case with SHAREit. It is one of the most accessible file sharing apps that allow for a smooth transfer of files without any reduction in file quality.
By using SHAREit, you can share files from an iPhone to different platforms like Android, Windows, macOS, and vice versa. At the same time, the interface is also minimal. SHAREit is one the fastest file sharing apps out there and its speed exceeds that of Bluetooth.
The complete stepwise guide is discussed further in the article, so read on to learn how to share files from an iPhone to an Android device.
Step One: Open SHAREit on the Android Device and Enable Receive Mode.
The first step is to open the SHAREit file sharing app on the Android device you want to share your files with. When you open SHAREit, you will see two main options, which are ‘Send’ and ‘Receive’. Since you want to receive files on the Android device, you need to tap on the receive option.
When you enable the ‘Receive’ button, the hotspot of that particular Android device becomes active, and you can see the details of that hotspot on the screen.
Step Two: Connect Your iPhone with the Hotspot.
In the second step, you need to connect the iPhone to the hotspot that has been created in the first step. Then, you can go to the Wi-Fi settings on your iPhone and connect to it by following the hotspot details on your Android phone screen.
Once you are done hooking the iPhone to the Wi-Fi, both the devices are successfully connected, and now you can share the files quickly, which is mentioned in the third step.
Step Three: Open SHAREit on iPhone and Start Sending
Now that both the devices are fully connected, you need to open SHAREit on your iPhone and hit the send button. Once you tap on the send button, all of your files will be categorised on SHAREit, including PDFs, images, videos, contacts, and others. Thus, you can easily choose the file you want to share and tap OK to continue the same.
