I have been trying to find out some information online about iBeacons.
I am surprised that Apple do not seem to be marketing them that hard on their website... and i am also confused as to why you cannot buy them on Apples website.
01 - can anyone recommend a good website for buying iBeacons
02 - are there various different versions
03 - what range do they work under
04 - can you plug them in or do they operate on battery only
05 - if a company has an iBeacon in their shop, how does a customer communicate with it... does it show up under WiFi, Bluetooth or how do they connect to it
06 - is it possible to interact with or prompt users that an iBeacon is available
07 - a company called Estimote seem to be showing up for most results... what connection do they have with Apple
Thanks in advance for your help.
