Instance Method

peripheralDataWithMeasuredPower:

Retrieves data that can be used to advertise the current device as a beacon.

Declaration

- (NSMutableDictionary<NSString *,id> *)peripheralDataWithMeasuredPower:(NSNumber *)measuredPower;

Parameters

measuredPower

The received signal strength indicator (RSSI) value (measured in decibels) for the device. This value represents the measured strength of the beacon from one meter away and is used during ranging. Specify nil to use the default value for the device.

Return Value

A dictionary of data that you can use in conjunction with a CBPeripheralManager to advertise the current device as a beacon.

Discussion

The returned dictionary encodes the beacon’s identifying information along with other information needed to advertise the beacon. You should not need to access the dictionary contents directly. Pass the dictionary to the startAdvertising: method of a CBPeripheralManager to begin advertising the beacon.
