iOS 8 Bluetooth problems trouble users

We have already told you about the vast list of iOS 8 problems that have troubled new buyers of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, resulting in Apple having to issue quick fire updates to iOS 8.0.1 and iOS 8.0.2.

As we approach the end of the week though, we have heard about a brand new iOS 8 problem, this time involving Bluetooth connectivity on iPad and iPhone devices running the software.

Specifically, the issue has been attached to those users who have updated to iOS 8 and are using their device to connect to a car audio system via Bluetooth. Problems involve the audio not working properly upon connection and an even bigger problem with users not being able to take incoming calls whilst connected to Bluetooth.

Additional details posted by Reuters reveals that the Bluetooth problems are not necessarily attached to automobiles, but Bluetooth pairing in general on iOS 8.

This means that some of you may run into issues when trying to connect to Bluetooth headphones, speakers, headsets and general home docks. Updating to the latest iOS 8.0.2 software could fix the problems, but still there may be a further danger of losing files inside iCloud drives when going for the “Reset All Settings” option.

Is this an issue that you are experiencing and needs to be added to the list of improvements needed in iOS 8.0.3? Let us know if you have encountered any iOS 8 Bluetooth problems since installing.

This is an issue. My wife got a new car last night and neither we nor the dealer have been able to set up the bluetooth with her iphone (she is running ios 8.0.2). We were able to pair an Android device so it is obviously the iphone. We can pair it but it automatically starts making random phone calls, but only the car – her phone is not actually calling anyone so it is rather bizarre. Then you have to turn off the car to stop the “call” because without the phone the car obviously cannot connect the call… Read more »
