BLE support in Amazon FreeRTOS is now available in beta. You can securely connect Amazon FreeRTOS devices that use BLE to AWS IoT through Android and iOS devices.  

Amazon FreeRTOS is an IoT operating system for microcontrollers that extends the FreeRTOS kernel with software libraries for security, connectivity, and updateability to make small, low-powered edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure, connect, and manage. Amazon FreeRTOS is open source, free to download and use, and provides everything you need to easily program connected microcontroller-based devices and collect data from them for IoT applications. You can scale those applications across millions of devices. Amazon FreeRTOS includes libraries that help configure devices to a local network using common connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and now via a connection to Android and iOS devices using BLE.

You can get started by downloading the source code from the Amazon FreeRTOS GitHub repository and the companion Android and iOS SDKs from GitHub. Refer to the Amazon FreeRTOS User Guide or the Amazon FreeRTOS website for more information.
