It was only a matter of time before people found a way to use an iPhone feature to prank strangers. The handy AirDrop feature on iOS is a great way to quickly send friends or co-workers files and photos. However, people are now using it in public areas to send each other memes and random photos. See for yourself ahead.
When I get bored in school I turn on my air drop and send random people memes

As you can see, people are sending all sorts of . . . interesting things. If you wanted to join on the fun, just swipe up from the bottom of your phone. You'll see the AirDrop feature. Tap on it to turn it on. You can then decide if you want to receive files from "Everyone" or "Contacts Only." Choose wisely or else you might get this.
On my phone at a nice restaurant with my parents then BAM this pops up make sure your AirDrop is on contacts only not on everyone 😰 pic.twitter.com/GzX6bSTRqU
