Watch this tutorial for an overview of iBeacon technology, standards, and deployment environments for iOS.
- [Narrator] In iOS, to monitor beacons,…we need to make use of the Core Location,…and Core Bluetooth frameworks.…When monitoring for Beacons,…we're monitoring what are called Beacon Regions.…And each Beacon has an identity…that can be broken up into three parts.…First, we have the proximity UUID,…or Univerally unique identifier.…It's 128 bit Value that identifies the Beacon.…This helps distinguish a Beacon from another.…
We also have a Major, and a Minor Value.…In the event that a Beacon has the same UUID,…these two additional Values…help further distinguish one from another.…The Major Value's also known as the most significant Value.…It is used to specify a sub region…inside of a broader region of Beacons.…The Minor Value, or the least significant Value,…is meant to divide a sub region even further.…For example, say we're in a Beacon region,…where all of the Beacons have the same UUID.…
Like in a department store.…The store's Beacons have the same UUID,…to identify it's location.…However,…we're able to further break down this store's departments,…
