Dropbox gives its iOS app a redesign and adds AirDrop support, teases “exciting things to come” ...

Cloud storage service Dropbox has given its iPad and iPhone apps an iOS 7-inspired design refresh, hinting that there are more features and changes coming soon.

The iOS app — which sports a redesigned icon — now supports Apple’s AirDrop feature, allowing links and files to be shared over the air with nearby devices, while the user interface includes iOS 7-style icons, menus and use of white space and colors.

The Dropbox iPad app lets users toggle between fullscreen and a split screen setup but what’s more interesting is Dropbox’s comment that the app update — which it describes as being “a bit like a new beginning for Dropbox on iOS” — “sets the stage for some exciting things to come.”

We’re likely to find out exactly what that means soon — we presume the company isn’t simply referring to a rumored new funding round that values it at $8 billion.
