What is iBeacon?
iBeacon is a new indoor positioning system technology from Apple Inc. that expands the location services of iOS 7 devices. The technology enables small "beacons" - low-powered, low-cost transmitter devices - to send out messages or notifications to the nearby devices, notifying them of their presence. With this technology, an iOS 7 device can send a push notification to other iOS 7 devices that are in close proximity.
Why is iBeacon important to App Developers?
With the entry of iBeacon in the world of app development, the various ways in which apps interact with users are about to be revolutionized. The latest developments in the technology, where iOS 7 devices can detect beacons even when the iBeacon apps are closed, will be of great importance to app developers, as it will allow them to provide more seamless user experience. Many developers who offer iBeacon solutions are already prepared to integrate the Apple technology into both new and existing apps.
How does iBeacon work?
The iBeacon technology is powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), which is also known as Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth 4.0. This means that the beacons can send out signals to any Bluetooth enabled device that can pick up the Bluetooth Low Energy signals, as long as they are in close proximity to the beacons. Compatible iBeacon devices include:1) iOS devices that have Bluetooth 4.0
2) Android devices with Android 4.3 or later and Bluetooth 4.0
3) Mac computers with Bluetooth 4.0 and OS X Mavericks - 10.9
The greatest advantage of BLE beacons is their ability to transmit accurate and specific micro-location data. This gives it an edge over Wi-Fi and GPS, as they are not precise with location data, especially when it happens to be indoors. iBeacons are also more sophisticated, as they have the ability to receive the movement data of smart devices which are within range, and the actions taken on those devices.
