Im an electronic designer and I developed a remote control for iPod/iPhone in the past. It made use of the serial connections on the 30-pin dock connector and iAP protocol to control music. I would like to port to the lightning connector or bluetooth and iAP2 protocol.
Is it possible to establish a serial connection with the iDevice without enrolling to the MFi program?
I would prefer the lightning connection, as its more reliable than bluetooth. But if its not possible, then bluetooth would be fine.
I would like to hire someone that can help me upgrade my hardware design so i can continue my project with the new technologies available and not the old dock connector.
