Apple brings filesharing capabilities to iOS 7 with AirDrop

Amongst the significant changes and feature enhancements we’ve already seen on iOS 7, it appears that AirDrop will be featured in the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The file-sharing feature will be available on the iPhone 5, iPad 4th gen, iPad mini and 5th-gen iPod touch, but apparently nothing earlier than that. The peer-to-peer feature was briefly shown off at WWDC in the Control Center, and it means there is “no need to wander around the room bumping your phones.” We wonder if this means we shouldn’t expect any NFC capabilities in the next version of the iPhone or iPad, but it’s still a little too early to make that correlation.

Here’s Apple’s official statement on AirDrop for iOS7:

“AirDrop is an entirely new way to quickly and easily share content with people nearby. When you’ve got something you want to share, AirDrop shows you your contacts close by. Just select who you want to share with and AirDrop does the rest. AirDrop transfers are peer-to-peer so you can use it anywhere, without any network or set up required, and transfers are fully encrypted so your content is protected and private.”
