This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


When a file gets sent, you'll be given a popup menu with a list of apps in which to store the file. You have to pick one if you want to keep the file. If you just press Cancel, the file gets deleted. If the file(s) are photos or videos (compatible with ios) they end up in the photo album. If, however they are not compatible with any photo viewer installed, they seem to disappear without warning.

    What if the pop doesn't show a list of apps? – Pup Mar 17 '16 at 18:50
  • I don't see any popup, I only hear a sound. – Salal Aslam Sep 21 '16 at 5:38
