I'm tasked with developing an iPhone app whose first bit of functionality is to connect to a bluetooth transmitting device (our company product),
receive data from that device, and use that data to do other important things.
Bullet points: - search for bluetooth device - connect to bluetooth device - receive data only from the device
Apple doesn't allow any Bluetooth device to connect to an iOS device. To connect, the device must be MFi compliant.
