Another really cool feature of ios7 is the new additional bluetooth capability. Some major news sites have covered this, such as 9to5Mac, and the essence is the most complete bluetooth LE coverage in a mobile device so far. So comprehensive in fact, I wonder how long it will take Android to catch up – particularly as we are still waiting for the official google bluetooth stack.
The ability to have push notification flow through to bluetooth devices, and the mechanisms to allow ‘always on’ will really improve the accessory market for iOS, and it certainly an area booming right now. I’m really looking forward to the advances we can get from Bluetooth LE! The iPhone, and to a lesser extent Android, will really have the capability to be the device ‘keyed in’ to a fully connected environment. I just wish the iPhone had more sensors onboard, but will see what the next iPhone brings.
