Android vs. iOS mobile app differences

RuuviTag sends data continuously and these messages can be captured using Android and iOS devices.

Please be noted that due to Apple’s Bluetooth scanning restrictions, iPhone and iPad devices are not capable to scan nearby Bluetooth broadcast messages when the app is not on foreground. For this reason, history graphs and alerts are currently not working with the standard firmware.

However, we’ve created a firmware that’s able to connect with the mobile app instead of just sending broadcast messages. With the new firmware, Ruuvi Station iOS app can be connected with a sensor (or sensors) in the background and this way launch alerts.
