Hi,

The Ble support large messages by changing the MTU, and iOS change it automatically to 185 (in iOS 11 and iOS 10).

You can try, instead to send one message each 50ms, send one message each second with last 20 values.

Quick question, do you have SM(encryption and/or bonding) implemented in your project?

Its yours right to think like that, but trying costs not much. For example i had hid app issue with windows 10, but adding SM solved problem. Also i know esp32 solutions where BLE application works fine with iPhone, its not my app because i dont work with it.

True,

But I am trying to copy the HM-10 BLE module, the iphone just connects to this and works forever, no disconnects

So it is possible, could be just a setting in the BLE characteristics I am missing ....

If you just connect with the Iphone with the esp32 and then dont send any notifications it stays connected, soon as you start sending, it disconnects itself.

Find it quite strange no one is using the Iphone and the esp32 for BLE and theres examples out there ??!?!!

Anyone ! :)

HM10 characteristics are here....


Do you think that if I try and all all of these it might work perhaps ?

Hi, Fugazi
Find it quite strange no one is using the Iphone and the esp32 for BLE and theres examples out there ??!?!!


I not agree that, I use with success esp32 BLE with iPhone and iPad, iOS versions 10 and 11, much estable for my app :-)

What is the interval of time you send messages to iOS?
Have you tried the solution to send wide messages every second?

Hi

Do you have your app code online, would be good to try?

I havent tried wide messages yet as I need to maintain compatibility with Android and the HM10 works fine so theres an setting with the esp32 thats not right ....

Thanks anyway :)

Hi Fugazi,

I will make it in future, a complete sample solution for Esp32 BLE, with Esp-Idf firmware, Android app in kotlin, iOS app in swift 4.
I need prepare all, and translate all code and apps to english.
But I dont have time now for this, but I post here when it is done.
I see this is important, because today we do not have a complete example for who is starting to work with ESP32 Ble and app mobile.

I have the same issue with my iPhone 5S.

In my case, I have tried the `examples/bluetooth/blufi` sample and that appears to fail in the same way. That example is supposed to work out-of-the-box without many application bluetooth tweaks.

What's more, is when testing a few months ago I did not see these issues when using an iPhone (It wasn't a 100% reliable connection, but it would run for many minutes, and not only a few seconds as it does now.)

So in my opinion this is possibly an issue within ESP-IDF, and perhaps something which has changed only recently. There is also the possibility that the latest iOS has changed something, since my phone is running the latest version.

I have no idea how to fix it, or what might have changed.
