    I have Beta 3 on both my iPhone and iPad.... Love it so far. However, my ipad can see my iphone when I use AirDrop, but not visa versa. Is anyone else having this issue in which AirDrop is only working in one direction? (And, yes, they're both se to "everyone")

    I could be wrong, but I don't think it's active yet.

    I have only tested airdrop on two iPhones, but it works fine. Report it as a bug as you should be able to use it on the iPad from an iPhone, as well as from an iPhone to an iPad.

    I just don't want to install it on my iPad yet, I would like it to work :)

    iPhone 5 to iPad mini airdrop no go

    I have the same issue. I can send anything from my iPad mini to iPhone 5 no problem, but not the other way around. If I had to guess, it's the iPad mini causing the issue(seems more buggy than iPhone 5) Let's just hope they fix it in beta 4 cause there were multiple times I wanted to put some videos from my iPhone to my iPad and could not.

    I fixed it by resetting network settings on both devices under settings, general, reset.

    Hope this fixes it for you too.
