Apple today announced that AirDrop, which allows people to wirelessly pass files between devices, is compatible between iOS and OS X devices. Previously, AirDrop could only send files from iOS to iOS, or from OS X to OS X. This will help ease the pain of sending files between devices. The new functionality of AirDrop is part of something Apple calls Continuity, which will sync information, such as iMessages and call logs, between devices. Further, iOS and OS X devices can set up peer networks and remain connected when they are in proximity with one another. When networked (via Wi-Fi), Apple's Mac computers can make calls and act as a speakerphone for the iPhone (which is what is actually making the call). Continuity will also sync open web pages within Safari on OS X and iOS so users can pick up on one device where they left off another.
