My iphone 5 will not connect to any bluetooth devices.  My iPad 2 is doing the same thing after the upgrade to iOS 6.  Is there a fix?

iPhone 5, iOS 6

    Hi Mark,

    Have you tried to do a restore to your phone? I would do the following:


    a) Backup your iPhone5 with itunes.

    b) Do a restore as a new phone (I know, I know hold that thought).

    c) Try to pair a bluetooth device. If you cannot see any device, then you might have a faulty Bluetooth chip.


    If it works,

    a) Just to a backup restore back to your phone and then repair the bluetooth device.


    Let me know how it goes!

    Delete the pairing you had under iOS 5 then re-pair the devices that are on iOS 6,
