iBeacon: Developed by Apple, iBeacon offers an exemplary and forward-thinking approach to exploring locations. It consists mainly of advertisements or small data packets. These are transmitted at frequent intervals by BLE-enabled devices over radio waves. According to the standards, iBeacon requires an optimal transmission frequency of 100 ms.
However, it is possible to stream more frequently, but it consumes more battery. However, it enables faster discovery by devices, including smartphones. A standard BLE maintains a transmission range of up to 100 ms, making the beacons perfect for proximity and indoor location marketing.
Therefore, with our iBeacon mobile app development services, businesses and the retail industry can look forward to cutting edge and niche applications. These will add value to the operation and improve competition all the way in operability and functionality.
Beacon is a piece of Bluetooth hardware. Its size may vary based on battery capacity and range, but it is generally small. Basically, iBeacon (BLE device) transmits low energy signals with Bluetooth 5.0 protocol. It has a signal sending range Effectively around 50 meters.
With an iBeacon network, any brand, retailer, application, or platform will understand exactly where a customer is in the brick and mortar environment. This provides the opportunity to deliver highly contextual, hyper-local, and meaningful messages and advertisements to customers on their smartphones.
We have expert iBeacon app developers with core expertise and a perfect app strategy for developing mobile apps like healthcare apps, payment solutions, travel apps, and proximity-based shopping apps. Retailers are the most frequent iBeacon users who send a message when their customer enters the store. And sometimes, along with coupons, it adds even more to the customer experience.
iBeacon can be an excellent solution for location-based shows and events to communicate point-to-point information and sales promotion. Also, in public transport, airport, restaurants, and museums, beacons can enhance the experience through interactivity and communication.
We are leading app developers in USA, Toronto, and worldwide. We believe in combining the latest technologies with an enhanced user experience to offer customized solutions for iBeacon application development. Our competent team of well-trained iBeacon application developers possesses in-depth knowledge and understanding of Low Energy Bluetooth.
The maximum distance that the iBeacons can reach is 70 meters. However, there are limitations due to physical objects, natural events, external disturbances, and signal interruption. The range is adjustable in 7 various levels.
iBeacons, with the help of BLE technology, detects the customer's location, either near the store or within a proximity range. Then, send messages to their mobile devices about store information, offers, and more.
iBeacon can activate applications to work even if they are not currently running on any iOS device. Ibeacons work only for iOS devices and not for Android.
The main problems developers encounter are external interference and radio signals. But luckily, the iOS SDK manages and removes such complexities and more.
