Plugin.BLE scan in background on iOS

Billy12ShovelsBilly12Shovels USUniversity ✭✭✭

Hello forums,

I am trying to scan in the background on iOS for Bluetooth. I know that you have to pass in a service UUID to do this, but I am having issues trying to get it to work with Plugin.BLE (

I have a 2 byte array as my "UuidsComplete128Bit" (FE9A), which works when I pass it in natively, but I need to get it working with the plugin.

How would you convert it to a guid so that the plugin can handle it properly? I have tried a few different things, but my device does not get discovered.

Thank you for the help!
