    Hi,

    Worrying about ipad(1) being unable to use stereo bluetooth headset, I wonder whether this is a goodidea:
    IPhone is smart enough to use even the input/microphone of the bt headset. Doesnt apple want us to do skype or voip calls with an ipad?! I am sure that the bt chipset is not worse than the phone...
    The OS is the same and maybe the chip is at least similar. Isnt it possible to copy the bt "driver" (kext?) from iphone to the ipad?

    So far, my web search wasnt successful :confused:

    Do you have an idea or tip?
    Thanks

    Am I wrong? I thought you could use stereo bluetooth headsets with the iPad. I've never tried it (don't own a headset), but the documentation would suggest otherwise...
    See link...
    iPad: Using Bluetooth headsets and keyboards

    Have you even tried pairing a headset?

    Yes, stereo headsets are detected and work.
    However, microphone or the direction from headset to ipad is disabled.

    Furthermore, apps like skype and fritzfon etc. Do not use it as device. Not even as audio-out device :-( so you can use it for itunes, not more, not less...

    OK, your opening comment of "Worrying about ipad(1) being unable to use stereo bluetooth headset" confused me...

    I am really confused ~ but if on the off chance this thread pertains to JB, I will bump it back to the Hacking Section.:)

    hi,

    it's not really jb related, but (i)OS hacking fits better than this section. It's a feature which seems to be "disabled" by Apple, similar to a jailbreak, but not related to simlock etc.
    where to find the masters for kext and co?

    looks like the experts do only care about jb and nobody's thinking about unlocking eastereggs or existing hardware features ...

    The bluetooth profile needed for outgoing voice is not supported on the Ipad from the box.
    I'm not saying it can't or hasn't been done but I've never read of anyone successfully being able to add bluetooth profiles to an Ipad. With other platforms I've read of folks "changing the stack" but not on an Ipad.
