1. Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP)

One of the great features of today's advanced Bluetooth technology is the ability to stream your music without wires via Bluetooth. The fancy name for this technology is A2DP, but it is simply known as Stereo Bluetooth.

1.1. Connect to a Stereo Bluetooth Device

The first step to using Stereo Bluetooth is to connect to a capable Stereo Bluetooth device. This can be a car stereo with this technology built in, or a pair of Bluetooth headphones or speakers.

Put the Bluetooth device into pairing mode as per the manufacturer's instructions, and then go to the Bluetooth setting page from the Settings icon.

Once connected, you will see the new Stereo Bluetooth device listed under your Bluetooth devices. Sometimes it will simply be listed as "Headset." Just touch the device and you will see the name of the actual device next to the Bluetooth tab in the next screen, as shown here.



Next, tap your iPod icon and start up any song, playlist, podcast, or video music library. You will now notice a small Bluetooth icon in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Tap the Bluetooth icon to see the available Bluetooth devices for streaming your music (see Figure 1).

NOTE

If you are in the Now Playing view, the Bluetooth icon will be down at the bottom, towards the right-hand side.





Figure 1. Select Bluetooth device

In the previous screens, we selected the BlackBerry Stereo Gateway by tapping it. Now, your music will now start to play from the selected Bluetooth device. You can verify this again by touching the Bluetooth icon on the screen once more. You should see the Speaker icon next to the new Stereo Bluetooth device and you should hear your music coming from that sound source as well.

2. Disconnect or Forget a Bluetooth Device

Sometimes, you might want to disconnect a Bluetooth device from your iPad.

It is easy to get this done. Get into the Bluetooth settings. Touch the device you want to disconnect in order to bring up the next screen, then tap the Forget this Device button and confirm your choice.

NOTE

Bluetooth has a range of only about 30 feet, so if you are not nearby or not using a Bluetooth device, turn off Bluetooth. You can always turn it back on when you are actually going to be using it.

This will delete the Bluetooth profile from the iPad. (See Figure 2.)
