Full Bluetooth AVRCP Support in iOS 4.1 Beta

Posted July 15, 2010 at 3:56am by iClarified
The iOS 4.1 beta firmware brings full AVRCP Bluetooth support to the iPhone and iPod touch, according to 9to5Mac. AVRCP lets bluetooth devices take control of the audio functions of your handset.

This new feature reportedly supports skipping forward, back, and volume. Prior to this beta, only volume was accessible on third-party bluetooth devices. This is a nice addition to the operating system, and it furthers Apple's push of safety. Instead of having to use their phone while driving to control their music, users can simply use their bluetooth headset or controls built into their vehicles.

It's awesome they're adding this, but I wish they would also add full support over bluetooth so I can browse all the music and everything through my cars controls.

It only gets better ;-)... about time Apple started to listen to its customers not just to their pockets!!! PS/ can't wait to test those signal amendments they made to in order to "fix the signal issues".
