iBeacons are one-way communications (from beacon to device) at very low data rates.  Many applications need to interact with a data store somewhere to be useful.  You might want to pull multimedia information from a server, or finalize a transaction.  All of those other interactions require higher data-rate communications, and therefore, are likely to be done over Wi-Fi.
