I'm pretty sure I already done that a few weeks ago. I sent him a PM, will see if this time i have an answer.
Any chance I can get this done as well? I updated my profile and sent a message to GregG_16 but haven't gotten a reply.
So one more thing, I did get invited to a group for HomeKit WiFI/BT. Is this the only place for info on MFi? While we are interested in HomeKit long term, we also were hoping to get information about the required additional hardware required by the cryptography (we just expanded our Apple Developer setup to include MFi so I'm still trying to learn where to look for stuff).
Also is the idea of using Bluetooth Classic to talk to iOS with a custom protocol just totally dead? We have been trying to do some large file transfers to devices without WiFI and BLE has been killing us.
With regards to Bluetooth classic, I still see a lot of usage in the audio (AVRCP, A2DP, HFP) space, all forms. BLE Isochronous channel support on BT 5.2 may eventually shift this business to lower cost BLE, but legacy BT applications will exist for some time.
Many industrial customers also use the SPP profile for a variety of things and need this legacy support in existing products.
Another use case for BT EDR is FW updates as BLE 2Mb/s PHY is really tricky to implement when it comes to high speed transfers.
The downside is that an MFi license is needed on the handset side if BT is used vs BLE.
Can you share your experience with BLE 2Mb/s PHY?
Bill, your number checked out, so yes, I invited you to the HomeKit group. Apologies since my Forum notifications were going to my Clutter folder for a while.
