Understand the necessary steps to enable an iOS device to broadcast the iBeacon profile.
- [Instructor] In this lesson we're going to discuss…what it takes to turn our iOS device into an iBeacon.…In our project file I'm in the class…DeviceBeaconViewController.…Before we get started on working with code,…let's take a second to review what code is already in place.…First I've created several UI elements,…all with IB outlets, and they have already…been linked to their storyboard outlets.…We have text fields for the UUID major and minor fields.…
We also have two labels to displace status,…and we have a button that will allow us…to start and stop advertising as an iBeacon.…In viewDidLoad I've added a TapGestureRecognizer…to dismiss the keyboard after entering…values into our text fields.…Scrolling down a bit more, I have a function…to show an alertController, which accepts…arguments for a title and message string.…We also have functions for when buttons are pressed.…First, we have a startButtonPressed function,…which is where we would input the logic necessary…to start and stop iBeacon advertising.…
Secondly, we have a closeWindow function…
