Use the iPhone drag-and-drop feature to move photos
The drag-and-drop feature gives users the ability to easily drag and drop files like photos from one app to another and you won’t have to download things to send them to other apps anymore. Read on to learn more about this feature.
Which apps support drag and drop?
Before we begin the process, let’s first find out which apps support this feature. It should be noted that this feature is not available in all applications on your iPhone. In order to use this feature, developers must first integrate it into their application.
So far, Apple’s own apps, including Safari, Mail, Messages and Files, support this feature. Also, some third-party applications, such as Gmail and Telegram, support the Drag and Drop feature.
What files can you drag and drop?
Now that you know which apps support it, you should also know what you can drag and drop on those apps. First, you can drag and drop Photos which is obvious. In addition, you can drag text, videos, links, audio, as well as PDF files. However, keep in mind that both applications should support the file format.
Steps to use drag and drop on iPhone
Now let’s move on to the steps to use this feature on your phone:
1. First open an application that supports this feature. For example, I will drag a photo from Safari to Messages. The steps are the same if you want to drag text, links or any other files.
2. Now select the photo you want to drag, hold your finger on it until there are small vibrations.
3. Do not lift your finger off the screen and pull it until it starts to float.
4. Just hold down your finger and with the other finger open the app you want to drop this photo into.
5. Now, with your finger holding the photo, go to that destination app and release your finger to drop the photo.
If you want to send multiple photos, tap other photos one at a time, or if you’re in the Photos app, just select one photo until it floats, then tap other photos to add it. Then use your other finger to open the destination application and send it.
