Swift Heroes Digital 2020
An Introduction to Bluetooth Low Energy for Swift Developers
Martin Woolley, Developer Relations Manager, Bluetooth
Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) is one of two distinct flavours of Bluetooth, the pervasive wireless communication technology and, unarguably, the most versatile of the two. All smartphones support Bluetooth LE and it is used in all manner of peripheral device, including activity trackers, heart-rate monitors, IoT sensors, and more. It can also be used to create networks of tens of thousands of smart devices in, for example, buildings, factories, and agriculture.
In this session, we will explore the basic concepts and the Swift APIs which make it possible for iOS developers to create exciting Bluetooth LE applications.
