iOS 5 reportedly transmits Album/Track/Artist data to Bluetooth audio devices

9to5 Mac notes another unsung feature of iOS 5: when you stream music over Bluetooth to an audio receiver, that receiver will now be able to read the album, track and artist data embedded in the ID3 tag of the song. What that means is your receiver's display (such as one you might find in a newer car like the Prius) will now show you all that information instead of saying something generic like "track 03." Ah, the future is almost here.
