I am going to create iOS app for iPad, and I need to use serial port to communicate with hardware.
I used xojo serial port on desktop and web application.
Is there something to use serial port or other options to communicate with hardware.
it will be easier to use small IOT modules to communicate with wifi with the ios device then ust tcpsockets to communicate.
there is no serial port on ios devices
you could use bluetooth but the functionnality is severely limited by apple and the sandboxing.
does it appear as a serial device on a mac ( or an ios device ) with xojo ?
No, it will need a special BLE app.
so may be MBS has some plugin for that, or it will be very difficult to access it from xojo.
sorry - no plugin possible for ios actually …
