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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

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.
