    I would like to develop a app using iBeacon
    The beacon security is a big problem. Because all people can create a beacon with the same ID and put it to my area.

    Can I make the app download iBeacon information from my server every day?
    The iBeacon information include new uuid major minor value.

    Thanks a lot

    Sure, that is the way that we do it at work, there are no issues with that. Do you have specific concerns?

    Thanks Sean
    I concern about apple not allow the app background(Background Fetch) download iBeacon data
    Moreover can I make the app run in background to track the user?

    When you're app wakes up, it has so much time to do what it needs, you can wrap your download in a background data download task so it stays alive.

    Yes, iBecaons will wake up your app (or starts it if it was killed completely) when a beacon you are monitoring for comes in range and again, you can do what you want (Even in the background but only fora few seconds).
