Summary. AirDrop is a new automatic and self-discovering peer-to-peer wireless file sharing feature in Apple OSX Lion.

Apple’s website explains how to use AirDrop — it’s as simple and clicking and dragging a file from one computer to another.

Because AirDrop is unique to Apple, it only works in some newer Apple computers:

  • MacBook Pro (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2010 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 or newer)
  • iMac (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Mid 2010 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2009 with AirPort Extreme card, or Mid 2010)
