Apple is testing a new AirDrop WiFi-direct sharing feature for iOS 7, reports 9to5Mac.

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.

The site is unclear if the AirDrop feature will make the final cut as it has been told that AirDrop was planned for a previous version of the mobile operating system; however, it was scraped before launch.

A previous report on iOS 7 said that Flickr and Vimeo sharing would be added and the user interface would get a black, white, and flat all over design.

Nice to see Apple finally adopting the tiny umbrella. They just made a parachute out of it.

A so much needed feature on iOS... Popular third-party 'solutions' like "Bump" suck SO hard and are VERY limited and cumbersome (besides, they ALL rely on that both iDevice-users having downloaded the same application), leave alone that the only possible 'instant sharing' items being limited to pictures and contacts - NO possibility on sharing videos, documents (like office files) or music (like that is EVER going to happen anyway...) - - - Here is to hopping... Cheers Apple!

Well how do you know they weren't working on something similar and scrapped it because their was an app available that did the same thing. I bet there's a lot things they could incorporate into ios but don't because it would push developers out that have a similar app. You crabby pants Sally.
