Added iOS BLE Tutorial 2

Hi !

Added iOS BLE Tutorial 2 today !

It builds on the first tutorial. It adds support for connecting to a peripheral, scanning of  services on a peripheral and read/write and notification setting. It also starts a timer for measuring RSSI once every 5 seconds.

I finally got my iPad 3rd generation so I’ve added GUI in the iPad storyboard in the project for it too :)

I’m starting on my new CBPeripheral article now too.

The New iPad

So I watched the keynote for “The New iPad” and they didn’t mention anything about Bluetooth 4.0 og Bluetooth Smart as far as I could see, so I got a little nervous they had left it out :) I did not have to wait long, I looked at the specifications sheet the next day on and it showed that Bluetooth 4.0 was in place :)

The tutorials will be complete projects with all source and xcode projects. They will be the basis for many of my lessons on CoreBluetooth.

Apples Bluetooth Smart Framework Howto

I’ve been writing iOS code lately, and more specific CoreBluetooth which is the Bluetooth Smart API apple has developed. I must say that I find it easy to get going.

I’ve been thinking about making a tutorial on how to get going with Bluetooth Smart applications on the iPhone, and also write some text on which problems one may encounter :)
