Hi. I have an app which monitors for beacon regions. Simplified, when the app enters a region a notification is shown on the phone.
Sometimes, especially when the phone is in sleep, or the app has not been open for a long time, it can take a long time before the push notification appears (and before the didEnterRegion callback is called). Just now, I waited 11 minutes, and I got a push notification.
My questions are:
1) is the signal sent to the OS approximately right away, and it is the OS that does not bother calling my apps` didEnterRegion before 11 minutes has passed?
2) or is it that the beacon does not bother to send me signals before 11 minutes after I approached the beacon?
In case 1) I am fine. I have passed a beacon, and I have walked on several hundred meters, but I finally get a message (that I ideally should have gotten 11 minutes ago when I was right next to the beacon). In case 2) there is a problem if I have moved on several hundred meters, and I will never get a signal from the beacon.
