Rumours also persist that Apple is planning to introduce the AirDrop file-sharing feature (currently available on Macs running OS X Lion) to iOS 7. AirDrop currently allows users to quickly transfer a file from one Mac to another, nearby Mac, without them needing to share the same Wi-Fi network.

According to MacRumors, the feature is being tested internally at Apple with a view to bringing it to iOS 7, meaning someone using an iPhone will be able to swiftly send a photo, document or other small file to their or a friend’s iPad (and possibly Mac) without needing to fuss with iCloud synchronisation, email or third party services like Dropbox.
