Keep up to date with Errata

Errata Service Releases (ESR) are documents containing a list of errata that identify corrections to Bluetooth® specifications, including the Core Specification, profile specifications, and service specifications. An ESR document provides corrections since each specification was last adopted. Errata Service Releases are reviewed by the Bluetooth SIG Working Groups, approved by the Bluetooth Architectural Review Board, and adopted by the Board of Directors. To ensure interoperability of devices, members are encouraged to implement these adopted errata. Errata contained within an ESR may be selectively implemented, except where dependency among errata is expressly indicated.
