Check out this board then https://www.ack.me/products/AMW006_A02_Mantis
It’s half the price.
Based on the new AMW006 Numbat module
It’s not just about the hardware though, it’s about the software too.
The things “just work”. No need for man months of development just to find new stack features added by the Wi-Fi alliance which then has you invest more man months.
These modules only cost 10 bucks, your already talking about 6 without any software.
Seems like false economy to me
(Plus if you read the other comments then there is obviously some secret sauce in there they haven’t announced for the apple auth.)

Your mixing terms. BT4.0 has nothing to do with this.
That’s a stack version and your phone does support the earlier versions.
What you are trying to do is send data and this can be done with both BTC and BTLE. The issue is that Apple doesn’t support SPP (serial port profile), they instead made a proprietary one and to be able to use that you need to be a member of Apple’s MFi program (mfi.apple.com). If you are using BTLE you dont need to be a member of the program, but BTLE itself doesnt have an SPP, you will need to make your own proprietary profile.

Sounds like you are trying to use it as a source streaming device. The RN52 is a sink not a source. Its designed to be in the end equipment not the source equipment. The only time an end device becomes a source is when it is used as a headset for calls, in that case the HFK and HSP profiles are used. Then it will do what you want but it has to be in a call.
If you are looking for a source device, Microchip are launching a source mode version shortly, you will be able to do this with that.

The RN52 is an audio module. BLE isnt audio. BT4.0 is not required for audio. What are you trying to do? For audio it should connect to any phone that supports audio (most headsets are BT2.0 or BT2.1).
If you are trying to do data, then you should look at the RN42 or RN41.
as it is an audio receiver in effect, then 1. Microchip are shortly launching a source version to stream audio to sinks, that version will support multiple connections

this is not a standard BT profile
No public wish lists :(
