Apple. iOS 7. And NFC… AirDrop

One of the many hoped for features in Apples new iOS 7 was the adoption of NFC or Near Field Communication technologies. Well we now know that NFC isn’t going to be a part of iOS 7 and many folks believe that brings about the death of NFC. Well NFC isn’t totally dead and Google still is using it in file transfer between devices and even for Google Wallet but Apple hasn’t adopted the technology. But that doesn’t mean Apple doesn’t have their own way of doing things. In this new iOS you will see and make use of AirDrop which has been on the Mac for quite some time. I am interested to see that apps that die as a result of AirDrop on iDevices and what new technologies spring from its addition to the iOS SDK.
