How To Remove The AirDrop Button From iOS 10 Share Sheets

If you want to remove the AirDrop button from iOS Share Sheets then you should install the new jailbreak tweak to do it. AirDrop feature is a convenient way to send and receive files between iDevices and Macs. As important AirDrop might be, it’s essentially useless if you are not fully invested into the iOS and Mac ecosystem. Admit it, traces of something which you don’t use at all can get rather annoying. Those with a jailbreak can hide AirDrop from their device entirely with a new free Cydia release known as AirDrop Disabler by Justin Petkovic. This Cydia tweak aims to remove the atrocious AirDrop section from Share Sheets for a cleaner look and wider field of view.

How To Remove The AirDrop Button From iOS Share Sheets

To start using AirDrop Disabler tweak it is recommended to disable receiving files via AirDrop on your device. To do that, launch Control Center and click on the AirDrop button, then click on the “Receiving Off” option from the pop-up menu. This turns AirDrop off and grays out the AirDrop button:

Once done, AirDrop continues to appear in Control Center and in all your Share Sheets. That’s where AirDrop Disabler comes in handy, as it allows you to remove the AirDrop button from iOS Share Sheets view.

As you can see on the screenshot example above Share Sheets interface looks much better this way since the AirDrop box takes up so much space.

If you don’t use AirDrop on your iOS device at all, then it’s best to download AirDrop Disabler tweak right away from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. It’s absolutely free, and cleans up the aspect of iOS which badly needs tidying given you are not using the feature at all. This tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices and has no options to configure.
