Discover nearby Bluetooth peripherals and inspect their services for information and characteristics. • View information and signal strength for all peripherals and devices, updating in real time as you move around. • Get battery level for your own Apple devices — no need to install the app on all your devices. • See model identification broadcast by devices around you, mapping the Apple device identifier to the marketing name. • Extract software and firmware version strings from devices broadcasting this information. • Read any characteristic's value, even for services not well known and are custom to the device being interrogated. • Write characteristic values back to the peripheral as string, numeric or hex (pro). • See a history of the value of a characteristic since the session started, timestamped to when the value changed (pro). • Log found peripherals, services, characteristics and values, and export a .log file of timestamped events for your analysis (pro). • Shortcuts integration with actions for scanning and interrogation, enumerating services and characteristics, and reading values (pro). Get support on Twitter @grgarside or Constant use of Bluetooth connectivity can drain your device's battery. Bluetooth connectivity is only used when this app is in the foreground and up to a few seconds after being backgrounded to safely disconnect from peripherals being interrogated.



  • No other BLE app comes close

    By Carroll Vance
    Every other BLE app feels half finished / not suitable for anything outside of development. This supports Automation, meaning it supports reading and writing values with voice commands. It’s not even fair how much better that fact alone makes Bluetooth Inspector if you are a maker and want to control any BLE device with your phone.
  • Disappointment

    By CyberTerrorist_
    The app presents a devices UUID but has no idea what a MAC address is. Given that it doesn’t seem to be able to interrogate the devices announced names. It makes it nearly impossible to know exactly what device you’re interrogating. This won’t work for me. Had to delete the app. ☹️
  • Worth buying pro

    By Hammerbrocm
    its a really good utility app for finding transmitted singals, you should definitely buy the pro version to write to devices and get locations
  • Could use more stuff

    Sorry for it being 4 stars but i am having trouble finding my black shark Lucifer t2 earpods what I recommend is adding the name and etc so it can be a bit better thanks for understanding
  • I like it

    This app is very clean and works well however wish it supported notify for BLE.
  • Super disappointing : (

    When i downloaded and opened the app i was met with frustration. It couldn't find any bluetooth devices even know i had one right next to me. The blue tooth device wasn't even locating my phone or connecting to it so i downloaded the app in hopes it would actually appear as a blue tooth device for my phone. But i only got 0/0 blue tooth devices on the app and i checked my sisters phone and she was connected to several. Disappointed that it couldn't even track down one.
  • Looks great so far

    I like that it show and updates all devices in range continually, I have some devices that the manufacture ID is unknown, how do I pull the 12 digit mac from the 32 bit ID given? I tried the 3 blocks of 4 characters between the long blocks without success.
  • Instructions?

    I feel like an adult version of my ten-year-old self trying to win street fighter by choosing random buttons. Except this time, potential losses include my already rocky marriage. 😂 Is there any way that multiple "iPhone 13 Pros" (with different signal levels) would be coming from only one phone and showing under both connected and unconnected? Seems doubtful.
  • This the one

    Best BLE scanner on the App Store. If you’re doing any BLE stuff - use this one.
  • Too buggy to be of use

    By joost4u
    Presents one long list of devices named and unknown all mixed up, not sorted by signal strength or any other way. List of devices found only grows, devices no longer available still remain in the list as active.
