My iPod Touch now has Bluetooth thanks to OS 3.

[ Edited ]

I was going to buy a Sony iPod Bluetooth adapter so I could use my Sony Bluetooth headphones but I don't have to now since downloading OS 3 for iPod Touch. I didn't even know the iPod Touch even had Bluetooth in the first place.

 

And shake to shuffle, gosh it gets more exciting by the minute.

This!

I couldn't give up tons of free apps and all the tweaking I've done to it

The dev team said it should be that long before they release 3.0 anyway.

The main thing i wanted from OS 3.0 was scrolling text for playlists and currently playing songs.

 

Yet apple could even manage to do that. Well done guys

There's a blue tooth chip that is used for the nike trainer thing in the IPT 2g. Thankfully they've unlocked it xD btw does any one know if blue tooth head sets will work with OS 3.0?

The iPod recognises my Sony DR BT22 Bluetooth MP3 player headphones as a handsfree device. They double as a mobile phone headset as well, so if they work then other Bluetooth headsets should work.

Re: My iPod Touch now has Bluetooth thanks to OS 3.

DZY kinda covered it, but if you're interested, then they basically put in the hardware for bluetooth but left it software locked - most people assumed they were waiting for a big OS update before it became usable.

 

Think I read this on hackaday a while ago, but it might have been somewhere else - anywhere that's likely to have posts of people dissecting their electronics would no doubt have run the story.

I've looked on Cydia and all it says is it's coming soon.
