Apple Adds M1 Macs to its Mysterious “B2002” Bluetooth Database Listing
As spotted by the folks over at MacRumors, Apple has just updated its mysterious Bluetooth SIG database listing codenamed “B2002” it originally filed last year in October, with the trio Macs with the M1 chip.
On February 10, 2021, Apple added its latest MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with the M1 chip to the listing, under the “Personal Computer” category with “TBD” model number. Even though this rules out the possibility of the “TBD” item being an M1 Mac, the product continues to remain a mystery.
Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, AirPods Max, HomePod mini, fourth-generation iPad Air, eighth-generation iPad, and the latest iPad Pro models, all have separate Bluetooth database listings.
Products rumored to be in Apple’s pipeline for release in 2021 include its long-awaited AirTags items trackers, a new Apple TV, second-generation AirPods Pro, and more, but it is simply unclear what the “TBD” listing represents.
In addition to entire products, Apple does occasionally file components in the Bluetooth SIG database, such as the H1 chip in the second-generation AirPods and the W2 chip in the Apple Watch Series 3.
Since the listing has a “Controller Subsystem + Host + Profile” description, it could simply possibly refer to the M1 chip or another component in the M1 Macs
