I will design & code for you, but I will also charge you (PM me)
If you don't like my answers, realize : I'm not being cheeky, I'm Just trying to prompt you to use your own brain/google etc.


See the problem is I don't have any dongles or shields that i can use and i can order stuff from ebay time to time. I just want to be sure before i do something


Unless you try all the options, you will NEVER know the simplest option, will you?



Well, Bluetooth does not work with IOS but wifi does. But setting up WIFI for arduino is kinda hard.

Do you know any bluetooth modules that work with IOS? and what kind of app do i need to use it?

The popular HC-0x Blueteeth don't work with IOS, but any Bluetooth v4 module will. Just how useful IOS is in the Arduino world is not very clear but for just sending control commands to Arduino, it should be OK, and a browse through the app store should show that.

Bluetooth usage on iOS has restrictions and not many apps use. I dont know if any apps other than that of native IOS allows usage of bluetooth . With Jailbreaking the iOS device this is possible after installing Cydia.
