iPod nano (7th generation): Supported Bluetooth profiles

Use iPod nano with compatible Bluetooth headsets, speakers, and hands-free systems in some automobiles. Learn about the Bluetooth profiles you can use with iPod nano.

Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)

With the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile, you can stream high-quality audio (stereo or mono) from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection. Use it to play music wirelessly from iPod nano to a wireless headset or a compatible car audio system.

Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP)

With this profile, you can remotely control playback functions on the iPod nano from compatible devices (commonly Bluetooth devices that use the A2DP profile). iPod nano works with the pause, play, stop, next track, and previous track commands.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BT LE)

Use low-powered Bluetooth accessories with the Bluetooth Low Energy profile. iPod nano works with Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Monitors.
