Notes: AirDrop may not move the music files from iPad to PC directly. Therefore, if you want to share music between iPad and PC, iPhone Transfer is a good choice, because it can transfer music easily and quickly without Wi-Fi.

In the process of sharing iPad music with iDevices nearby, you will notice that not all songs could be transferred using AirDrop. In the same way, not all artists and albums can be handled with such a convenient feature. Consequently, Apple should perfect this setting for iPad/iPhone users to make sharing more efficient and comprehensive.
