    I upgraded my iPhone 4 to IOS 6.  Think I was able to use my Plantronics M155 for about a day then I was unable to pair it any more.  I tried pairing again.  The M155 (spoken status) said "Pairing Successful" but the iPhone shows Pairing Unsuccessful.  Tried with my Plantronics M1100 and a BlueTrek Carbon.  All of these can not pair with my iPhone 4 any more.


    I also upgraded my iPad 3 to IOS 6.  It however is able to pair with my M155. 


    Any one found a fix yet?  Is it possible that there is some conflict with a particular APP?  I undated a bunch of APPs and then the bluetooth stopped working?

    I have a JayBird sportsband and while it connects properly, it now loses control ability since the iOS 6 upgrade.  The skip forward/skip back control no longer works properly.  I've turned off BT, unpaired the device, re-paired, and the control works for a short while and then drops it again.  This feature was one of the key reasons for purchasing this headset in the first place.

    Weird to read that you got connectivity back - sadly no joy for me despite doing a complete re-set on my Dre Beats and re-pairing.Only light at the end of this pricey and infuriating tunnel is that a supervisor from Apple called me back - dead on the arranged time - and sounded genuinely apologetic and assured me it was being investigated and will get back to me asap. I can only suggest that if you have the Bluetooth problem - and if you know anyone having the same problem - painful and time consuming as I know it is - phone them!! The more of us who do this the more likely we may get the much needed fix.

    I have exactly the same Problems with my iPhone 4S and my Wireless Beats (V2) Headphones, since the Update to iOS 6 as Stevo14896!


    Especially with Audiobooks and Podcasts the iPhone cuts out every couple seconds everytime it gets to the next chapter. Sometime I can’t hear the music or the Audiobook/ Podcast anymore, but the iPhone continues to play it.

    By the way the “remote” controls on my headphone aren't working properly as well. Sometimes the iPhone gets my commands, sometimes not.


    When I use the cable with the Beats Headphones or my older iPod (3GS Gen. with Bluetooth, but without the Softwareupdate) I have neither of this problems!


    I’m very disappointed by Apple! This is the worst Softwareupdate I have seen jet from them and the headphone were very expensive!

    Having the same problem as Stevo14896 and Morphois. My wireless beats (V2) which I bought 2 months ago and iPhone 4S, my iPad 3 is still on iOS 5.1.1 and is staying on iOS 5.1.1 until the bluetooth issue is resolved. The headphones work fine with my iPad. The headphones can connect, but as Stevo14896, tracks skip, they stop playing despite the track on the phone still playing, sound is patchy. 


    I am so disappointed in this update and for my wireless headphones, I am having to use the lead they come with to get uniterrupted music, wireless headphones, wired! Thanks Apple!

    I am having the same problem as well.  As soon as my iphone 4s and ipad 2 was upgraded to the io6 the bluetooth is not working properly.  Music skips or just goes out on my headphones (Beats).  Like seriously. This needs to be fixed.

    I'm having similar problems with my 4s after iOS6 update (one week after installing). suddenly my phone is no longer paired with my 2011 vw tiguan bluetooth, and when i try to pair again, phone finds the vw device, vw device finds the phone, but when i input the factory setting code to complete connection, it says it is incorrect. same happens when i try to connect to my wireless network. i'm being told my password is wrong.

    I contacted the Apple Support (Germany) today and they told me to reset my iPhone. Before and after that I also renewed my Bluetooth Pairing with my Beats Wireless, but nothing worked.


    The Apple Support told me also to restore my iPhone, if a reset doesn't solve my problems and if this also fails to bring it to the Apple Store to swap it for a new one, because I quote "then it is a hardware problem"


    My question?  OMG do they have a clue what is going on? Swap my iPhone "because this is a hardware problem", will not solve my problem with the **** iOS 6

    I have had nothing but issues since "upgrading" to iOS 6.  I have an iPhone4, and use it constantly in my vehicle with an Alpine CDE133BT.  The stereo has worked flawlessly for over a year now with the iphone with both bluetooth calling and bluetooth audio.  I literally don't have to touch my phone while driving. 

    Now, with iOS phone will no longer do voice dialing through my stereo.  I have to manually dial the number or find it in my contacts on the phone while driving.  Bluetooth audio is also a problem, as I have lost the ability to FF, RW, or pause the music from the stereo or via the steering wheel controls. 


    Hands free phone use while driving is the LAW where I live.  If you are seen handling your phone while driving, they can fine you $136.  I will be seriously re-considering my decision to go Apple if this catastrophe isn't fixed in a hurry.

    I have an iPhone4 and a Pioneer AVH-P2400BT car unit.  I've upgraded to IOS 6.  The update (from what I've tried and what I can tell) is NOT reversible.


    Here's what I've found happening between the iPhone & Pioneer for bluetooth streaming audio:


    1.  The track/artist info no longer displays.

    2.  The track skip buttons no longer function.

    3.  The pause/play button no longer functions.  It may SEEM like it does, but it simply mutes the audio, the content continues to play (silently) on the iPhone.

    4.  The content no longer resumes when the vehicle is started.

    5.  The content will pause when the vehicle is turned off, but a couple of seconds continue (silently) on the iPhone.

    6.  If content is paused by the vehicle being turned off, it will resume playing on the iPhone speakers following an incoming phone call, whether answered or not.  (This can be a little embarrassing, depending on the content of your prefferred podcasts! )
