Regulators O.K. Apple's Bluetooth headset for sale alongside iPhoneFederal regulators this week gave Apple Inc. the go-ahead to begin selling its seldom-mentioned Bluetooth headset alongside iPhone later this month.
Documents released Thursday by the Federal Communications Commission, which omit photographs and a user manual at the iPod maker's request, show the device to carry model number A1221 and FCC ID BCGA1221.
Apple has said little about the pen cap-like accessory since introducing it back in January alongside its first-ever mobile handset — iPhone. Similarly, it has not said how much it plans to charge for the device or precisely when it will be available.
The Cupertino-based company also announced a second iPhone accessory, a wired headset with built-in microphone, that it also plans market alongside iPhone.
Again, details surrounding pricing and availability of that product have not been made public.
