Apple's #iBeacons explained: What it is and why it matters
iBeacons is a brand name created by #Apple for a specific technology. That technology allows mobile apps to recognise when an iPhone is near a small wireless sensor called a beacon (or iBeacons, as well). The beacon can transmit data to an iPhone - and visa versa - using Bluetooth Low Energy (#BLE). iBeacon is a feature in #iOS7, thus Apple's new iPhones will have iBeacon.
