When i send some pictures to my iPhone from my MacBook via AirDrop, the Photos app on my iPhone opens automatically.

How can I stop that from happening?


iOS is programmed to automatically open the default handler app after it receives file(s)/data via AirDrop.

There is no native way built into iOS to change this behaviour.

    I have the same question. Is there a way to change the default handler app? – Tony M Dec 3 '19 at 16:50
