iOS 5 To Broadcast Album/Track/Artist Data To Bluetooth Audio Devices

As reported by 9To5Mac, it seems that a new feature of iOS 5 has been revealed! Using iOS 5, an iOS device streaming music can now reportedly transmit artist, track, and album information over Bluetooth to an audio receiver.

In other words, if you have a car with Bluetooth capabilities and are streaming music to the car sound system, the display on the sound system will have the song track name, artist name, and album name (that is, if you updated the song information).

Check it out!

    Finally, they make use of Bluetooth Rev. 3(?) so the metadata can be accessed.  It sucked not being able to see the artist name / song name on the receiver display.  Yet another box checked off the list!

    It’s not AirPlay, this icon shows only when you have more than 2 audio source.

    I’m still waiting for crossfading within the ipod app… I know there are other apps that can do it, but why not in the native ipod (music) app.
