What a busy week it’s been at WWDC! With Apple’s debut of iOS8 and Yosemite, we’d like to update you with what’s most relevant for you:
Indoor mapping is now available, offering precise location mapping. When combined with iBeacon technology this delivers even more relevant experiences to visitors and customers.
Location Services has been enhanced allowing greater privacy and choice to the device owner.
Passbook remains core to the iOS platform, with tight integration to apps and iBeacon technology, and a subtle change to the Pass scanning tool.
Touch ID can be used by 3rd party apps for verification, purchases, and protecting user data – making it more convenient and secure for both users and businesses.
Apple introduced HomeKit, a smart-home automation framework that allows users to control devices, switches, and locks. This framework is not just relevant to the Home.
A new programming language has been released – Swift – making it easier for developers to engineer engaging apps and integrate PassKit technology.
Check out some of the things our CTO had to say about Apple’s operating system update in the South China Morning Post.
We are working round the clock to integrate all these new capabilities, and more, so you can easily and instantly profit as soon as iOS8 is available to the public.
In addition, we continue to update our resources so you can create and deliver even more remarkable experiences. Start by visiting our iBeacon Resource Center and trying some cool passes. Our paying clients will soon receive an exclusive ‘how-to guide’ to fully capitalise on the O2O revolution.
