On iPhones, the Share Sheet is a powerful, but largely underestimated tool. For the uninitiated, the Share Sheet is the menu that pops up when you tap the Share button (the up arrow field). This menu offers sharing options for first-party and third-party apps and additional features such as save, copy, duplicate, and more. The best? It is surprisingly customizable.
Although the core functionality of the Share Sheet has not changed significantly in recent years, the iOS 13 release menu has been completely redesigned using the latest version of iOS or a version like iOS 12. Keeping you up to date can handle both versions listed below.
: Using iOS 13
Sharing Worksheet is the same for all platforms – just tap the Share button. On iOS 13 you can see many things at the same time. The top row of icons contains your favorites and suggestions made up of iOS custom apps and suggestions. You can quickly share these apps by tapping their apps, then following the instructions on the screen.
You can customize this row at any time by moving it all the way to the right swipe and then tap "More". Here you can see which of these apps are "favorites", which means that they always appear in the sharing sheet and which of those apps are "suggestions".
To Add or remove apps to Favorites, tap Edit in the upper-right corner of the display and tap the (+) or (-) buttons to adjust the settings accordingly. You can drag the hamburger icon to the right of each favorite app to change the order of the list, or tap the buttons next to Apps in Suggestions to let iOS know if they should be included or Do not touch "Done" and then "Done" again to return to the sharing sheet.
If you look under the "Apps" line, you'll find Actions where you'll find options for copying and sharing a photo ranging from duplicating or hiding a file to assigning it to a contact or printing – these actions can be easily customized like the app series.
Tap "Edit Actions" and you'll find a familiar editing screen as above. Here you will find "Favorites" at the top, which will put your options at the top of the list of actions, and the actions will be named yours r current app listed. These are app-specific and will only appear in Favorites in this particular app. Underneath, you'll find "Other Actions" that include additional actions that are often available through third-party apps.
Tap the (+) and (-) buttons again to add and remove favorites (tap "Remove" to confirm the removal) and drag the favorite actions with the hamburger icon in the desired order.
When finished, tap Done to return to the approval sheet.
When you run iOS 12, your sharing sheet is not nearly as complicated. But you'll find it just like that – just tap the sharing icon wherever you are. You will then see the release sheet, which, in addition to its appearance, has many similarities with iOS 13. In the top line, you can run AirDrop with other iOS and Mac users. The middle row shows apps for which you can share your content. The bottom line lists activities ("Actions" in iOS 13) that are not all related to sharing.
You can rearrange all items in the middle and bottom rows by long pressing an item , and then drag it to a desired position. To be honest, this feature is greatly missed in iOS 13's Share Sheet. Swipe all the way to the right in each line, and you'll find a "More" button. Tap it and you'll find similar controls as in the iOS 13 sharing sheet. You can rearrange apps and features using the Hamburger icon and enable or disable options using the buttons. Just tap Done to save your settings.
