iBeacon monitoring/ranging issues with iPhone 11 and/or iOS 13

Published

Edit: Issue may be related to iOS13 – Detect if bluetooth is enabled without prompting bluetooth usage request

We have received reports from our users that use iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro that our application is unable to monitor/range iBeacons. We haven’t received a report for any other device/model. We are assuming that this is related to the new Bluetooth 5.0 technology.

Our application uses the standard CoreLocation iBeacon setup, no other frameworks/libraries and I can provide the code if needed. However, since it’s a standard set-up, I don’t think it has anything to do with the code, especially since all other iPhone models work without any problem.

Has anyone had a similar issue? If so, any solutions? Also, is there a way I could test the Bluetooth 5.0 and iPhone 11/11 Pro without owning the actual device? Xcode Simulator doesn’t have a way to do this as far as I know.

Thank you.
