Any wireless device broadcasts signals to the nearby devices in the range. A device coming in the range of this signal can be triggered to perform certain actions through an iBeacon App. iBeacon is basically an Apple’s implementation of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless technology. It creates a different way to provide the location based information and services to the iPhone and other compatible devices. iBeacon was introduced in iOS7 with iPhone 4S and later versions. It is also found in iPad, iPad mini, and iPod touch. Interestingly the technology of iBeacons is also compatible with the Android 4.3 and above versions. That means the iBeacons work seamlessly on the Android as well as iOS devices.
