How iOS 6 could turn your iPod nano into an iPhone

Your future iPod nano could be getting a massive boost in the IQ department if rumours of iPhone Bluetooth pairing come to fruition.

Apple is reportedly working on a secret iOS 6 feature which will enable the iPhone 5 and other iOS 6 devices to act as a bridge between other Bluetooth 4.0-capable gadgets, according to iLounge‘s source.

That means – as an example – you’ll be able to display your iMessages on an iPod Nano connected to your iPhone, in a manner similar to that of Sony’s SmartWatch or the Moto ACTV.

Routing phone calls and recording voice memos via the connected iPod Nano could also be plausible options, and overall it’ll give users more functionality without having to slip their iPhone out of their pockets while running/cycling/dancing.
