    AirDrop isn't available on iPad 3, only iPad 4 and mini.

    There's an easier way:
    iPad 3 has 30 pin connector:

    iPad 4 has a lightning connector:

    Keep in mind that it only shares pictures, ... with an iDevice which also supports AirDrop. So if there's nobody around you who can use it, there's no need to "upgrade" at the moment.
