Tutorial Description

iBeacon and Beacons - We've all heard about this new technology brought in with iOS7, but what's it all about?

iBeacon is a technology built on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and allows your iPhone or iPad to connect seamlessly (and with zero configuration) to small, low powered Beacons when you approach them. This has huge potential for Retail, Education, Businesses and even around the home.

In this week's show I try to set out to de-mystify what iBeacon is and start to explore some of its potential.

Starting off with a look at some of the basic principles of iBeacon, I take a look at how my iPhone communicates with three Estimote Beacons and run through some of the demonstrations. In next week's show, I'll take a look at tweaking the Beacons and demonstrating a typical location based app from the App Store.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Introduction
  • Estimote App
  • Notify Demo
