Multipeer Connectivity
The Multipeer Connectivity APIs, introduced in iOS 7, therefore may well be the most significant for the platform. It allows developers to completely reimagine how mobile apps are built, and to redefine what is possible. And we’re not just talking about successors to the lame bump-to-send-contact-information genre, either: multi-peer connectivity has implications on everything from collaborative editing and file sharing to multiplayer gaming and sensor aggregation.

Multipeer Connectivity is a framework that enables nearby devices to communicate over infrastructure Wi-Fi networks, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth personal area networks. Connected peers are able securely transmit messages, streams, or file resources to other devices without going through an intermediary web service.

iOS & Swift Tutorial: Multipeer Connectivity
The Multipeer Connectivity framework was added in iOS 7 and provides a layer on top of the Bonjour protocol. You can communicate with apps running on nearby devices. Under the hood, the framework automatically chooses a suitable networking technology:

Wi-Fi network if both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network
Peer-to-peer Wi-Fi (supported on iOS devices with a Lighting Connector and on Macs since 2012)
Bluetooth

Lawsuit claims Apple forced users to iOS 7 by breaking FaceTime
Citing internal emails and sworn testimony from the VirnetX trial, the lawsuit alleges Apple devised a plan to "break" FaceTime on iOS 6 or earlier by causing a vital digital certificate to prematurely expire. Apple supposedly implemented the "FaceTime Break" on April 16, 2014, then blamed the sudden incompatibility on a bug, the lawsuit claims.

Apple recognized the FaceTime issues in support document at the time.

If you started to have issues making or receiving FaceTime calls after April 16, 2014, your device or your friend's device may have encountered a bug resulting from a device certificate that expired on that date. Updating both devices to the latest software will resolve this issue.

The support page has been revised multiple times since the above text was posted in 2014 and no longer includes mention of the April 16, 2014, bug.

The complaint goes on to cite an email chain from Apple engineers as evidence that rising Akamai fees spurred the company's actions.

"Hey, guys. I'm looking at the Akamai contract for next year. I understand we did something in April around iOS 6 to reduce relay utilization," said an Apple engineering manager. In response, another engineer said, "It was a big user of relay bandwidth. We broke iOS 6, and the only way to get FaceTime working again is to upgrade to iOS 7."

None of Apple's alleged plan to force an upgrade was made public.

The allegations are somewhat questionable, as Apple's own statistics show only 11 percent of compatible devices were still running iOS 6 as of April 2014.

In any case, with the key backend component rendered non-functional, users looking to make FaceTime calls were left with little choice but to upgrade to iOS 7, or more specifically iOS 7.0.4. Citing circumstantial evidence and media reports, the suit alleges the forced upgrade was too much of a burden for older hardware like iPhone 4 and 4S, causing those devices to crash or run software at slower than optimal speeds. As such, users who owned said iPhone models were harmed as a result of Apple's actions.

The class-action suit seeks to find Apple violated California's unfair competition law and is liable for trespass to chattels, a tort in which one party intentionally interferes with another person's possessions. Undisclosed damages are also being sought.

New lawsuit accuses Apple of deliberately ‘breaking’ FaceTime to force users to upgrade to iOS 7 | iLounge News
[…] In developing iOS 7, Apple engineers were able to include a method of peer-to-peer FaceTime communication that didn’t infringe on the VirnetX patents, however, Apple was either unable to unwilling to bring these improvements into an iOS 6 update. Based on internal emails and sworn testimony from the VirnetX case, the new class-action lawsuit claims that Apple made plans to deliberately “break” FaceTime on older iOS versions by forcing a key digital certificate used for FaceTime to expire prematurely. The lawsuit alleges that Apple implemented the “FaceTime Break” on Apr. 16, 2014, blaming the sudden incompatibility on a bug, and advising users that they would need to update to the latest version of iOS to resolve the issue.

The lawsuit also cites an email conversation between Apple engineers as evidence that the company chose to “break” FaceTime deliberately as a result of relay fees being paid to Akamai. The alleged email from an engineer to an engineering manager within Apple reads, “[Akamai] was a big user of relay bandwidth. We broke iOS 6, and the only way to get FaceTime working again is to upgrade to iOS 7.”

While Apple’s statistics show only 11 percent of compatible devices were running iOS 6 in April 2014, users on those devices who wanted to use the FaceTime feature had no choice but to update to iOS 7.0.4, which allegedly “fixed” the issue. The lawsuit cites circumstantial evidence and media reports in claiming that the forced upgrade was “too much of a burden” for older hardware such as the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models, rendering those devices unusable with the new iOS update. The lawsuit alleges that for this reason, users who owned those particular iPhone models were harmed as a result of Apple’s actions, and that Apple is liable for “trespass to chattels” under California law by internationally interfering with another person’s possessions.
