Apple Keeps Turning Bluetooth On When You Update Your IPhone

By DMO Affiliate

The last few times iPhone users updated their operating systems per Apple's prompting, they may have noticed something weird. Those who keep Bluetooth turned off for battery and privacy/security reasons suddenly had Bluetooth turned on by default after the update. A plausible reason why Apple may be turning on Bluetooth is to bolster the use of iBeacon, a new technology from the smartphone giant that turns your phone into a homing beacon, helping retailers sense and communicate with phone-toting consumers in their vicinity. iBeacons communicate via low-energy Bluetooth to awaken apps so that they can send messages or coupons to a persons phone.
