    I am wondering what would be the best way. I have an entire concert filmed on a relative's 6s and would like it to be on my iPhone as well. I thought AirDrop but I am not sure. Is there any better way you can think of?

    I would think that's what Air drop is for.

    I have a slow Wi-Fi and the video is too long. I'm afraid that like half the video will transfer, nothing will display and I will lose the GBs or something. I am generally unlucky with these problems. I've had plenty. That's why I doubt.

    10.6 minutes with Airdrop at BT 4.0 24 mbps.

    It doesn’t use your WiFi network so it doesn’t matter if it’s slow. It’s WiFi direct.

    But you need 40GB for both upload and download, plus it is slow, based on OP’s claim.

    If I were you, I would use iTunes for this transfer. Wired transfer is far more stable than wireless transfer in this regard, plus your device is changed.

    I'm not sure if AirDropping such a big file will crash your phone(s) or not.
    I guess using a computer as a middle man will be less stressful to your devices.
