iOS 4.1 Bluetooth Playback Control (AVRCP) is Added

On July 15, 2010

Users who have updated their iOS devices to the newest iOS 4.1 have found that AVRCP compatibility has been added.  AVRCP lets cars control the iPod app through their paired Bluetooth connection.

Users can now skip forward, back, and control volume according to the reports (Apple hasn’t released the full list of 4.1 features as of yet).  Of course if you’ve paid for one of those expensive iPhone adapters for your car, you’ve been able to do all of this for a while, but having it available without spending an extra $ is pretty nice, and also much safer than trying to fiddle with the phone to make changes while your driving.
