iBeacon support


Am I correct in understanding that I would need to eject my expo app in order to integrate with iBeacons, e.g. using react-native-ibeacon? Anyone working on adding this into expo?

DeviceEventEmitter listener not firing in detached app

You can detach and use ExpoKit for iBeacon support, yes. I believe this is on our list for new native APIs, but it hasn’t been scheduled on our roadmap yet.


Any updates ?


Hey @grossi678,

Unfortunately there isn’t any active development underway on iBeacon support. We’re a rather small team and have to selective on what we undertake in regards to adding to the SDK. You’re best option is still to eject and use ExpoKit.
