More details emerge about iBeacon hardware never released by Apple

Some of you may remember that, in July last year, there was some documentation about a new Apple device that would use the technology iBeacon. We even discussed the matter in the on Air # 098.

Now, months later, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the ?Anatel of the United States? has published more details about the device (model A1573), including a mini manual made by Apple.

The device is very small, as you can see through the hole ?A? which serves to hang it on the wall and the size of the Micro-USB port (?C?). It also has an LED (?B?) with some indications of operation and battery, as well as an alternator (?D?) on and off.

According to 9to5Mac, which discovered the documents on the FCC website, there are indications that the hardware would be intended for testing apps by developers. The manual even mentions a specific Apple iBeacon application, but there are no screenshots or other information.

Fur timing of the whole thing, we?ll hardly see this product being marketed openly to consumers.
