    I am required to wake up my application when bluetooth pairing happensin ios. I see that the ios app can listen to external accessory, can any gentle soul please throw light to docs or sample codes or work arounds please ? wake up means while the app is in closed state, not in background running.

    my initial research pointed towards below links.

    the last person's answer in both the posts indicate towards that it is possible. my doubt is for exactly what event i can wake up my application from closed state (i mean the user closed the app from background apps list ) ?

    My further investigation revealed that in my app-info.plist, requiredbackgroundmodes is set to "App communicates using bluetooth"

    Still the app does not receive any entry point when it is in stopped state upon bluetooth data arrival ! this is kinda baffling me.

    should this go to didFinishLaunchingAppWithOptions ? should that be the entry point or something else ?

    I think it is entry point of your investigation and to go further you need to study Bluetooth programming i mean to understand how its send and receive data to another Bluetooth device.
