A list of iOS devices nearby connected under the same Wi-Fi network and running AirDisk Pro will be listed.

6Tap on your secondary, or destination, iOS device. The primary iOS device will try to connect to the secondary iOS device. A message will appear on your screen while it's waiting for the secondary device to accept.
