Mac OS X Yosemite: 7 Key Features For IT And Developers



AirDrop

When Yosemite and iOS arrive, there will finally be a way to transfer files directly from a Mac to an iOS device and vice versa. And it will be done using AirDrop, the fantastic ad-hoc file transfer system in use on Macs since the 2010 introduction of Mac OS X Lion. In the past, this capability was limited to Mac-to-Mac and iOS-to-iOS transfers only. This feature removes the desktop-to-mobile barrier and makes it possible to form device-to-device connections without Bluetooth pairing and without a network of any kind.
