How to Sync iPhone and iPad Wirelessly with iCloud

iCloud is the optimal choice for you to connect an iPhone to an iPad if you prefer a wireless solution and use the same Apple ID on both devices. For example, when you want to sync photos from an iPhone to an iPad, all you need is to turn on iCloud Photos on both devices. Easy? But to sync data from an iPhone to an iPad successfully, there are some requirements you need to meet:

  • Make sure you are using the same Apple ID on both devices.
  • Make sure you have enough iCloud space left to save the items you want to share.
  • Make sure there are stable and fast network connections on both devices.

After you make these preparations, follow the steps below to sync your iPhone and iPad over Wi-Fi:

Step 1. On the source device, go to "Settings" > [your name] > "iCloud."

Step 2. Toggle on the option according to your needs. For example, if you want to sync photos, turn on the "Photos" option. While if you want to transfer contacts, toggle on "Contacts" instead.

Step 3. On the target device, turn on the corresponding iCloud option and then wait for the data syncing to complete.

How to Transfer iPhone to iPad with AirDrop

iCloud sync all of your items under a certain category and any changes you make on one device will be synced to the other. That means it is not a suitable choice when you want to transfer files selectively. Besides, if you want to transfer data from one Apple ID to another, iCloud won't work. In such a case, another wireless solution - AirDrop will fulfill your needs better.

AirDrop is a file-sharing service available on Apple devices, including iPhone and iPad. It transfers photos, contacts, websites, locations, and more between AirDrop-supported devices as long as they are within Wi-Fi and Bluetooth range. 

To transfer files from an iPhone to an iPad with AirDrop:

Step 1. Turn on Bluetooth and AirDrop on both devices.

Step 2. On the source device, select the files you want to transfer and tap the "Share" icon.

Step 3. Tap "AirDrop" and select the target device.

Step 4. Tap "Accept" on the target device to save the items.

The Bottom Line

You should know that when it comes to contacts, AirDrop can only transfer them one by one. If you want to transfer multiple contacts, it's advisable to use EaseUS MobiMover or one of its alternatives. By the way, if you want to sync music or books using iCloud between your iPhone and iPad, go to the Settings app and choose the corresponding category instead of your name. Afterward, enable the option below the "AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS" section to turn on iCloud syncing.
