What are iBeacons?
iBeacon is a service that is part of Apple’s core location services. This service allows any Apple device that supports BluetoothLow Energy to find and locate other iBeacon devices. An iBeacon can start transmitting a signal with a unique identifier. Once a device is within range of this signal, it can read the unique identifier and thus determine its position. The range varies but can be up to 100 feet depending on the device. So once your device is within range, it will detect the iBeacon.
