An update to iPhone 3.0 firmware release and stereo bluetooth - missing AVRCP

It turns out that the iPhone does support AVRCP - that's giving us the play/pause functionality.

But - in this support article it says:

iPhone and iPod touch (2nd generation) support pause, play, and stop for AVRCP

So - apple have implemented AVRCP - but just not all of it.

From the support article there is no indication if this is going to get updated - so I guess we'll just have to hope.

Update on AVRCP

As of iOS 4.1 the AVRCP support now includes ff/rw and next/prev so it looks like a complete support for AVRCP from that version.
