We are starting to build our own BLE device. We intend to send some simple commands to any smartphone through BLE like:
You will find more details on what we have tried to do below:
Our device doesn't have neither speakers, neither MIC, so Siri has to get the voice flow from the smartphone MIC, not from the device that asked to start Siri. From our point of view it seems that the best BLE profile that match our needs is the HID over BLE. Am I right or am I missing something ?
The HID (over GATT BLE profile) has a command that allow to start Siri (refer to this website):
So it seems to be a good lead, but from now we didn't succeed to start Siri with this command. Do we need to implement any kind of MFI certification software or hardware (Apple Authentication Coprocessor v2.0c)?
Is there any kind of procedure or guidance to be able to start Siri from a BLE HID device?
Thank you in advance,
Hi there !
We used the HID over BLE profile to implement all the functionnalities, but we still encouter issues to start Siri with the dedicated command.
The "hack" is to send the home button command BUT it doesn't work on iPhoneX for example.
Do you have any leads?
Thanks in advance,
you could send a 1 to 2 second power command for iphone x tho
