Is it possible to have a Mac Mini running OSX act as a bluetooth headset for the iPhone? (sound comes out the mini's speakers, sound goes in the mini's mic)

I'm guessing that the mini would have to support the bluetooth headset profile?

You could use http://www.airserverapp.com/ . It basically turns you mac into and AirPlay device for Video, Audio and Pictures. It will not use bluetooth, but your local network which has it's benefits, (range mostly).

  • I'm looking for more headset functionality. The headset profile has ring notification and caller ID information.

I use the Belkin Bluetooth receiver to stream music to the speakers connected to my older Core Duo mini with the free LineIn by Rogue Amoeba. I've not worked out getting microphone input to the iPhone but am guessing it's might not be possible.

  • I'm not able to pair my white plastic topped Mini (Core Duo) with a headset to accomplish microphone input.
