For Airdrop functionality you need the iPhone 5.

How come the filters in Camera App works for the iPod Touch but not the 4S? Can't think of anything that the iPod has that the 4S doesn't?

I'm curious about this too.
They release ios7 for the iPad 2 and later, and then limit Airdrop to only the 4th generation iPad.

I've only had my iPad 3 for one year, and it is already becoming obsolete for software features. I would like to know why. I could understand the iPad 2 being overlooked for Airdrop, but leaving out the iPad 3 is really upsetting.

There needs to be an answer for this.

4th gen iPad, iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5 and iPad mini are the only devices that support Airdrop due to the new wifi chip.

No ipad 2, 3, iphone 4 or iPhone 4s.

An A6 chip, more memory, and a larger screen? :P

It works on the iPhone 5 (and future models), iPod touch 5 (and future models), iPad 4 and iPad mini (and future models of course)

It's due to the hardware. AirDrop uses a combination of Bluetooth and WiFi protocols, into something similar to Wi-Fi Direct. It's possible the new chip supports WiFi Direct, or it's a connection established through Bluetooth then files are shared through 802.11ac.

iPod touch 5th gen doesn't have an A6, it has an A5. They have the same amount of memory, and the 4S has a better camera...

Chances are that 60fps video recording is iPhone 5/iPad 4 only.

My mistake.

Probably cause the 4 is just dated.

Yes, dual spacial stream wifi chip/antenna. One can maintain primary AP connection, the other can connect to friends.

Just a guess.

Um, we're talking about the 4S, with same specs as iPod 5th gen.
