Apple introduced an innovative contact-sharing feature called “NameDrop” in iOS 17. This exciting addition, inspired by AirDrop, allows seamless exchange of contact information among iPhone users.

Processes are seamless. It’s no longer necessary to figure out how to exchange contact information awkwardly. Simply place your iPhone over your iPhone to capture your phone number and email address.

Here are three easy steps you can follow.

Step 1: Place your iPhone over the other person’s iPhone

Gently position your iPhone, screen facing up, over the notch area of the other user’s iPhone (make sure their iPhone is facing up as well). Witness a subtle glow, confirming the successful connection between the two iDevices.

Step 2: You’ll see two options on your screen: “Receive Only” and “Share”
