I will show you how to turn off contact sharing in iOS 17 the right way. This feature is called NameDrop which allows you to exchange contact information just by bringing your iPhone near via airdrop.
This feature takes the cool wireless contact-sharing idea from AirDrop and cranks it up a notch. Imagine this: you and your friend both whip out your iPhones and with a simple touch, your contact details are exchanged. No more endless scrolling through nearby Apple devices; it’s like magic!
NameDrop lets you jazz up your contact info. You can create your personalized digital business card, complete with your favourite fonts, colours, and even a photo (or a trendy Memoji) of yourself.
Share additional phone numbers and email addresses, making networking a breeze.
