Bluetooth v.2.1 includes enhanced power optimization, improved security and simpler pairing that eliminates the need for pin codes. Discoverable devices can be set to automatically pair with in-range devices. Bluetooth v.2.1 also supports sniff sub-rating, which reduces power consumption for battery operated devices, and it allows pairing by other technologies; for example, pairing by passing Near Field Communications (NFC)-enabled devices close to each other.
