Locate files and folders on your android and iOS devices:

After discussing the laptop and PC, let’s move further and let’s discuss where files will save if we’re sending in an android or iOS device.

If you’re using android mobile, tablet, etc. then there are some simple steps you need to take in order to find the folders and files you get from Bluetooth sharing.

1. First, if you’re receiving files and folders on your android device then you may see a progress bar in the notification panel by scrolling it from top to bottom.

2. Here you can view the progress bar of sharing the files and folders you’re getting from Bluetooth but it’s only you can view in real-time. If you clear the notification then you may not find this progress bar.

3. In case, if you missed out on this progress bar and shared file location button in the notification panel then don’t worry, you still can find the path of the file.

4. Now, it totally depends on the type of file you’re getting from the sender. If it’s a media file like images and videos then you may find this file in your gallery.

If you’re receiving any software or APK then you may find this file in your file manager in the APK folder.

If it’s a document like PDF, PPT, WORD, TEXT, etc. then it may find in the documents in the file manager of your mobile device.

5. If you can’t locate the file manager on your android device then you can simply download it from PlayStore. You can go to the PlayStore and can download the file manager for free.

These are the simple steps in order to locate files and folders sent and receive on your android device. If you have any questions or anything you may have to share with us then you can write them down in the comments down below.

Please make sure to see the below steps in order to locate the files you’re getting from Bluetooth on your iOS device.

1. Similarly just like an android device if you’re using an iOS device then in order to locate the file you need to see the type of file you’re getting.

If you’re getting a media file then you may find this file in your Gallery. If you’re getting software, APK, .exe, or any other type of file then you need to find this file in the file manager.

If you don’t have a file manager then you can simply go to the AppStore and can download a free download manager.

2. If you’re getting a document file like PDF, PPT, WORD, TEXT, etc. then you need to see your document folder in order to get access to this file. You can use a third-party application or simply a file manager for locating the file.

These are the required steps in order to locate the files and folders you get from transferring with Bluetooth.
