| News

Apple has updated Bluetooth for Mac OS X, bringing the software to version 1.5. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows a Mac to communicate with peripherals. Appleis release notes are shy on details, but the newest version seems to add support for more headsets and printers. Those release notes:

Bluetooth 1.5 for Mac OS X provides support for Bluetooth enabled headsets and printers.

NOTE: Headsets must support the Bluetooth headset profile and printers must support the Bluetooth HCRP profile. In order to configure and use a Bluetooth headset, the Bluetooth module must have the latest Bluetooth firmware from the Bluetooth Firmware Updater application version 1.0.2 or later (http://www.info.apple.com/usen/bluetooth/).
