Mail Drop is the latest feature that was designed as part of the release of iOS 9. With this feature, you can easily share your files with no limit on its size. Here, comes a question on your mind. Do we have any inbuilt default application available for sharing? The answer is no. It is the additional feature that was provided in addition to Mail using iCloud.

When you attempt to share large size files through Mail, then you can come across an alert that “This attachment may be too large (<size>) to send by email. Do you want to use Mail Drop to deliver the attachment using iCloud? It will be available for next 30 days” with the two options, Use Mail Drop and Try Sending Attachment. In such cases, before you attempt to share a file make sure that you were logged in iCloud Account on your iPhone or iPad and then start up with sending attachments.
