    IOS seems to be lagging a bit in keeping up to date with the latest Bluetooth features -- for example, AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) in IOS4 is at 1.0, which allows basic control of the media player via bluetooth, but no metadata. Quite a few of the latest blackberries and android phones on the market seem to be on at least 1.3 already... My car has a (completely useless and distracting, but still cool to tinker with) "office" feature which interfaces with the phone for calendar/email/sms, but IOS is not up-to-date enough to support that. There's no way in hell I'd move off of IOS right now to get those features, but it'd be nice to have.

    Can anyone with access to the IOS5 beta check and see if they've updated the bluetooth profile? :confused:
