Apple’s new iBeacon and other future beacon technology could transform how your business communicates with customers and employees. Beacons use low-powered radio signals to allow smart devices to communicate with them. The iBeacon, specifically, allows iPhones to communicate via Low Energy Bluetooth. Indoor spots with poor cellular service and where GPS doesn’t always work are ideal locations for beacons, Business Insider notes. The iBeacon was included in Apple’s iOS7 update. And iPhones with Bluetooth 4.0 can act as both receivers and transmitters.
