Last week I mentioned some example code demonstrating basic use of the new iBeacons API in iOS 7.

Here’s a tutorial from Christopher Mann that includes a similar example, and in addition explains the basics of using the iBeacon API.

To use the included example you’ll need two bluetooth 4.0 devices with one acting as receiver, and one to monitor.

Here’s an image from the tutorial showing what happens when the monitoring device is in range of the beacon:

You can find the tutorial on the Captech Consulting blog here.

A nice straightforward guide for getting started with the iBeacon API.
