    iPhone OS 3.0 BT Status

    Updated For
    7A259g (Beta 2)

    This is me thread about the status of BlueTooth status from the 3.0 beta firmwares. I thought it might make it easier for people to find out what is working and what is not in 3.0.

    Individual BlueTooth Protocols

    Nike+ (Nike+ Running App / BlueTooth Device)
    Working for iPod Touch 2G only.

    A2DP (Stereo Audio)
    Working Much better than in 7A238j (Beta 1).

    AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Protocol)
    Partialy working see next section for brekdown.


    OBEX (File Transfer)
    Not yet but Apple announced BT file sharing so who knows.

    DUN (Tethering)
    Possible but not legitimately.

    vCard Transfer (Contact Cards)
    Not yet but Apple announced BT file sharing so who knows.


    A2DP / AVRCP

    iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G are probably the same in this section but i do not have a iPod Touch 2G development device.

    iPhone 2G - Unknown as of now. (Post if you know).

    Do any of these protocols cover using an external bluetooth GPS?

    In 3.0 GPS turn by turn is supported by Apple and accessories can be connected through bluetooth (which also supported by Apple), so you may relax, I'm sure some company will develop a GPS app with a bluetooth-GPS device you can connect to iPod touch 2G & iPhone 2G users.

    For the iPod Touch 2g:

    Stereo Audio: Works. Beta 1 had some issues, Beta 2 seems to have cleared them up, mostly. At least for me.

    Play / Pause: Works. Somewhat slow (A second or two between hitting the button and the song stopping, even with the icon changing instantly).

    Volume Up / Down: Works.

    Song Skip / Previous: Does not work.

    Does a microphone work now though? because there are a few A2DP headsets with a mic in them. Would be useful on the iPod touch 2G.
