Can You Use Bluetooth with the iPod Touch

One of the most common questions about the iPod Touch is whether or not it has Bluetooth capabilities. Well, with the software update for the second generation iPod Touch, the geniuses at Apple realized that people wanted to use Bluetooth with it. So in answer to that, they included a Bluetooth update with their software update for the second generation iPod Touch. But, even though the iPod Touch does have Bluetooth Capabilities, it’s not without its limitations.

Bluetooth and the iPod Touch can work together, but only through A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile.) This means that while you can use Bluetooth to listen to audio through it, you won’t be able to use it with a headset, meaning that you won’t be able to use it with services such as Skype. And forget about doing the same thing with the iPad, because you won’t be able to there either.

Because the iPhone is an actual phone, and not just a cool little gadget that can do all sorts of stuff, the iPhone, the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS, and the iPhone 4 all can be used with a Bluetooth headset. Maybe with the next generation of the iPod Touch, they’ll come out with these capabilities? Rumors are that that’s going to be quite soon!
