What is AirDrop in iOS7?
What is AirDrop?
AirDrop is kinda like Apples own Bluetooth. It allows you to share photos, videos, contacts and anything else from any app that has a Share button. The only catch, that other person has to running iOS7 on their iPhone.
It’s a cool feature and I would say it’s arrived pretty late for the iOS ecosystem.
It’s perfect for students, you’re with a few friends working on a project or some other work and you need to show everyone what you’re working with or looking at? AirDrop is all you need (that is if everyone has an iPhone 5 running iOS7) you just press Share and all your friends will appear under your AirPlay and ZOOM, it’s beamed to them. Yes, that quick too! If you’re still unsure about it, try it out for yourself, actually using it is the quickest way to learn about it.
AirDrop has a cousin – AirPlay. They both share a room on Control Center.
