Looking to learn how to communicate with Bluetooth LE devices in iOS & Swift 3? Well look no further – we’ve got what you’ve been waiting for! Our new guide on the Learning System by Trevor Beaton covers the basics on making your own Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) app using Apple’s Core Bluetooth Framework. You’ll need a basic understanding of Swift and iOS development, but no prior experience with Bluetooth Low Energy is required.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

That guide requires a $99 developer’s license. Why doesn’t Adafruit write a guide using free iPad Swift Playgrounds? File a radar if Core Bluetooth doesn’t work in Playgrounds with Adafruit hw–it should. I’d do it but I’m kinda busy right now.
Only high end BLE toy apps in the store now but the hardware manufacturers provide the app. You can view the source code.
