    I'm currently learning how to develop to iOS, and as i'm through it, i was able to run "my" first app on my iPhone using a dev account that i have access to. But to do that i had to connect to my Mac with the lightning cable to make the bound (check provisioning profile and UUID).

    And i wanted to know if it would be feasible that Apple could feature it on a future Xcode version, the ability to run the developed apps on our devices via AirDrop or equivalent, in the age of the Cloud, and syncing our iTunes via WiFi?

    You can use ad hoc distribution, put the IPA on a service like dropbox and expose a link to download it from your device, no cable needed.

    Look for Ad Hoc distribution for iOS, you'll find some tutorials to build the plist and the link to this plist. Is very convenient, I use this method a lot to distribute versions of my apps to beta tester
