Swift, a powerful and intuitive programming language for macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS and beyond, has seen widespread use across a range of developer projects.  

Recently, the Introduction to Bluetooth® Beacons Study Guide saw a new update that outlines how to implement Swift on an iOS platform, allowing you to use a modern, powerful programming language to create Bluetooth beacons. With help from this self-study educational resource, you get insight into the theory and practice of developing and integrating Bluetooth beacons into existing products and applications.

This study guide also:

  • Helps you build a Bluetooth beacon station on a Raspberry Pi board and implement it on iOS and Android as an app
  • Includes a new template Swift source code for reference
  • Provides added support for Raspberry Pi 4 and the latest BlueZ v5.50 installation

Download this updated study guide, and get step-by-step guidance for creating a fully optimized, powerful Bluetooth beacon.
