How can I turn off AirDrop on my iPad?

AirDrop is a peer-to-peer file sharing feature introduced by Apple with iOS 7. It can be a useful service if you use it often, but it can also be an unnecessary drain on your battery if you don't. You can disable this feature by opening Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of your display) and double tapping on the AirDrop logo.
