Apple iOS 7 was launched on the 18th September 2013 with a great new feature called AirDrop, this enables you to send a picture, contact, video or map location to other iPhone 5's, 4th generation iPad's and iPad Mini's and the 4th generation iPod Touch using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, it can't be used through a cellular network but can be used with devices not sharing the same Wi-Fi connection, an iCloud account is also required.

4.Open the picture you want to send and hit the share button in the lower left corner (the square with the arrow pointing up).

5. Select which device you would like to send the picture to. Devices in range with AirDrop enabled should appear as circles below the image and then all you need to do is hit the icon to connect to the desired device.

6. This is what the other person sees, they simply hit Accept and the picture is saved in their Camera Roll, the process is the same for videos, maps and contacts.
