Apple has recently unveiled the beta Messages app that can send any file to iOS device from Mac OS X and by any file it means virtually any kind of file. How to Send Files from Mac OS X to iPhone Via iMessage
First of all you need to drag a file from the Mac into a Messages chat window and
Then click on send from the Mac.
Just like with iChat file transfer, the mp3, video, picture, and other files are sent to users on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iMessages where they can open them. This is indeed a very good feature for all the Mac and iOS users.
However, there is a limit to what can be done with those files in iOS’ Messages app after you receive them. Both the sent and the received files end up at the following location:
And you need to jailbreak your device in order to access this directory besides having knowledge of the command line and an SSH client for the file transfer within the iOS file system. For example the .deb files can be sent but can’t be opened via Messages app.
Therefore, even if you can send files via Messages there are limitations regarding the type of files which depends on whether your device is jailbroken or not. Otherwise it would be preferable to use the usual DropBox means for transferring files.
