This BLE SDK for iOS provides a framework for Mac OSX and iOS developers to develop Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (aka BLE) Apps easily using a simeple TXRX Service for exchanging data. It is based on Apple's CoreBluetooth framework.
It currently supports iOS 7 and Mac OSX 10.9.2.
OSX 10.7.5, 10.8.x and iOS 6 also support BLE but not tested.
OSX 10.9.0 and 10.9.1 have bugs, so we will not support.
For iOS devices, only iPhone 4s/5/5s, iPod touch 5 and iPad 3/4/Air/Mini have BLE 4.0 support.
For Mac devices, if no BLE hardware built-in, you need to buy an USB Bluetooth 4.0 dongle (CSR or Broadcom).
Since BLE is a new technology, if you found your App does not run correctly, it might be the OS issue, try to restart your device to try again.
The examples are for our BLE development boards, currently, it supports:
- BLE Shield
- BLE Mini
- Blend Micro
- BLE Nano
- RBL nRF51822
