These days there seems to be an “i” everything; iMac, iPod, iPod iTouch, iTunes, iLife, iWork, iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, and now iBeacon.
Bluetooth technology now has another use. Introducing Apples iBeacon. iBeacon is the application of Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) wireless technology to provide location based information services to devices within the proximity of the sensor. The technology is launched with iOS7 and works with iPhone 4s and onwards, as well as the iPad 3, Mini & Touch. The same BLE technology is also compatible with the Android 4.3 and onwards.
