- Since you use Core Location with iBeacons,…there's special APIs for telling you whether you're…near, far, or immediate, or unknown state of those iBeacons.…So you get four proximity states.…Immediate, which means literally it's on top…of the IOS device or within a meter or so.…Near, which means it's beyond a meter,…to maybe like five meters or so.…And far means it's farther away than that…without being able to tell much more granularity.…There's also an unknown state, which means it can't…really tell based on the RSSI.…
Remember RSSI is the relative signal strength indicator.…And that BLE feature that we saw, we built the…BLE Scanner, is how iBeacons are actually implemented.…It takes, not only the discovery of the RSSI value,…but the fact that it's a UUID that matches your…beacon scanning and a major and minor I.D. to give…you back specifics about a unique iBeacon.…And in fact, if you have multiple iBeacons, you might get…data that gives you information for more…than one beacon during the single process.…
