iOS 7 May Include Airdrop

Airdrop is a great way to share files between Macs very easily. All you need to do is drag and drop the file and then it is shared if the other user accepts it. It would appear that Airdrop may be making it’s way to iOS 7 that is being revealed next week from today.

Sources say that the AirDrop functionality is currently integrated into the standard iOS share menu. AirDrop will work between two iOS devices and potentially between an iOS device and a Mac. The feature will make it easier than ever to transfer, for example, a photograph or document from one person’s iPhone to another person’s iPad.

While iCloud synchronization works well for sharing photos and documents between two iOS devices owned by the same person, the AirDrop feature will allow seamless individual file exchanges between iOS devices belonging to different people.

This would be great for iOS as it would allow people to share something instantly with no trouble at all. I can’t wait for it and I hope it is true but Apple was rumored to do this last year and scrapped it but I hope they introduce it this year.
