IOS 7.1 update for iBeacons

Just a quick note that follows up our recent semi-technical presentation on the current state of iBeacons on IOS and Android.

With the release of IOS 7.1 it makes a fantastic change that allows iBeacons to be monitored even after an application is killed (not just when foregrounded or backgrounded). This is a nice side-effect of Apple’s approach of using Location Services to implement iBeacon callbacks to Apps and it increases the utility for both App marketers and App users – great for retailers and brands!

Here is an interesting article that digs into the detail more and is pretty readable for most folks.
