Course Description

Learn the basic concepts of the IoT. Learn how BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE) is used to control devices and how to use iOS development tools for developing a simple application with actual hands on coding examples of how to create a real BLE iOS application that controls an IoT Device capable of switching 110V AC on and off using the Swift programming language for iOS 9.

Build a strong foundation in XCode 7 and Swift. This course helps you understand and implement IoT BLE technology in your own app with the latest technologies.

  • Swift programming language
  • XCocde 7
  • iOS 9
  • CoreBlueTooth LE fundamentals
  • Overview of BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE)
  • IoT device integration
  • Low Voltage switches to safely control 110V AC

Professional skills and experience from an iOS Architect with over 8 years experience.

Learn the fundamentals but also tips and tricks of the experts. Learn about the different type of BlueTooth and how to use CoreBlueTooth for iOS.

We will walk thru XCode setup and creation of a project for iOS iPhone application that uses CoreBlueTooth to include BLE Integration with an actual device.

Content and Overview

This course explains Apples CoreBlueTooth framework and how it is used with iPhone application development. We explain the overall system in detail from developing the iOS application to connecting to BLE devices. We explain how the CoreBlueTooth framework works and how to integrate it into an application with examples in Swift, Apples latest programming language for the iPhone. All examples are based on iOS 9.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Detailed explanations of CoreBlueTooth technology for iOS 9
  • Learn how to integrate into your apps from an iOS professional
  • Suitable for any iOS programmer, Swift basics for CoreBlueTooth are presented, no experience as a UI developer or server developer is expected.
  • Teaching by example, hands on example showing every detail to the smallest degree from starting a new application to running it on a device.
  • Access to Instructors GitHub account with many extras and examples.

If you don't have a BLE device don't worry, we provide a simulator that runs on a Mac OSX system to help your development.

Who is the target audience?
  • iPhone Developers interested in IoT technology
  • iPhone Developers interested in BlueTooth BLE Technology

Demo of completed IoT BLE iPhone project.

For the impatient students, I will show the final product we are building.

Preview 00:38

Overview of project, user-stories, planning and other stuff we need to do.

What were going to do

We will create a simple XCode 7 project that will support BlueTooth development

Creating an XCode project

XCode 7 lets you deploy to your device, we will need to run this on an actual device since the simulator does not support BLE.

Running it on your phone

Lets keep the UI simple, very simple.

We will create a simple switch to turn things on and off.

Finishing touches on our user interface for the BLE Swift Switch application

UI Completion

Setting Up CoreBluetooth

We will go thru the require steps of connecting a BLE device, the devices that we provide are very simple.

You can Scan for the device, issue a connect command and then send commands to the device.

Scanning for a BLE Device

Connecting to a BLE Device

This is the last step, we need to send a command to the device, the command is so simple, turn something on or off, no more no less.

Sending a command
