    Can someone verify in security settings and tell me if their is an on/off switch for BT and iBeacon validation to prevent an iPhone from automatically pinging or being pinged by I beacon waypoints? I will be getting the iphone6 and want to ensure I can prevent I beacons from throwing ads at me while I walk around in a mall. Or at least allow for white and blacklisting of stores. Like I may want Sunglass Hut to send me ads, but not the Gap. Just curious if this is in ios8 beta yet?

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. this is why I am asking: http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-indoor-mapping-project-and-ibeacon-2014-6?utm_source=googleplaynewsstand&utm_medium=referral

    There are settings for location services, system services for location-based alerts and iAds.
