How to Send and Receive Files in iPhone, iPod and iPad through Bluetooth

Apple iPhone is my Favorite phone I ever used. Most of the times when i am with my friends,  they used to show me interesting stuffs in their phones like Pictures, Videos or Music. When they interested to send that file to my iPhone, i really disappointed to say “I DON’T HAVE THAT FEATURE”. Not only me all  iPhone owners are really disappointed due to the restriction by sending and receiving files such as Photos, Videos, Music, Etc through Bluetooth. Apple Restricted this due to the security reasons. But Today we have a solution to bypass this issue.  You can able to send to all Mobile Models, Mac and PC. All you need Jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch before proceeding to this step.

Note: This is only for Jailbroken iDevices.


All you need to install a simple App from Cydia named “AIRBLUE SHARING” which allows you to send and receive file from any Mobile models, MAC and PC through Bluetooth. If you want to send and receive file between iDevices, it will use WIFI transfer to make it faster. It works perfectly.
