    I to have updated to the iOS 06 & have been plague by BT issues. My Plan Tronics ear piece will loose its connection after about 5 to 6 min. This frustrating especially when HF device is required now. To me it seems like a refresh issue between the BT radio & the BT device, culprit being the phone. As everyone else has stated, it worked before the upgrade & i work in the IT field so this very frustrating when updates are shoved out the door.

    So frustrating!  I have paired my phone yet again last night...get into my car and "no phones found" come on.....this all after updating to IOS 6!

     

    I have also tried to turn car on and off, not consistently will it connect to phone.  Sometimes I am talking on phone and all of a sudden the hands free link will connect.....

    An update: restored my phone to see if that would work. Nope, it doesn't even connect now to my iPhone.

     

    Also MAPS gets a whole apology letter on the website? That letter should be:

     

    DEAR CUSTOMERS:

     

    WE'RE SORRY ABOUT iOS 6.

     

    KIND REGARDS

     

    APPLE

    Iam also having issues with BT on my 4S. I used to be able to 1 click to SIRI and it worked great. Now my 1 click gets a male voice asking for a "COMMAND". I have found that if I say "phone" "he" will try to call the last number called.  However if I yell "PHONE" it will connect to SIRI but I can only get 1 call/e-mail/text done and then the whole process starts over again.  I am really confused on why the volume of my command "PHONE" gets a different action. Anyone found any solutions?

    Same problem here after upgrading to IOS 6 (0.5s seconds drops during bluetooth music streaming every other minute). Was fine with IOS 5.

     

    Configuration:

    iPhone 4S

    Pioneer VSX-300 AV Receiver with AS-BT200 Bluetooth Adapter

    Hi, guys.

     

    Same issue in France: Since IOS 6, no way to pair my iPhone 4S in my 135i anymore. Process stops after entering a pairing code.

    Also, sometimes, the screen goes black and I struggle to get it bck.

    Also losing frequently the 3G or complete network...

     

    I'm iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Macbook Pro, Imac equipped but will reconsider it as it gets worse and worse.

    ME TOO! I love my Beats Wireless use them daily wit my high itensity work out. Since the upgrade I have to frequently stop to reconnect the blue tooth. The music also microskips, never occurred before. Funny think is, when  I finally get fed up and attach the the cord to by beats, disconnecting the blue tooth it appears to work without any problems. (Perhaps I should not have said that...). If I had wanted to use a cord I would have not purchased the headphone with the blue tooth option.

     

    Hey Apple! I hope you are working non-stop on a fix and get it out to us loyal Apple Consumers. (After 20+ years I am on the fence now).

    Dido from me only I am running a AVH-P4400BH.  I have the identical issue.  If I wanted to have my bluetooth suck this bad I would have bought and Android.

    Same deal - went to IOS6  and Harmon Kardon wireless headset from iPad now sounds like like an old 45 disc that's been dragged across concrete. Plus Bluetooth from iPhone to X5 now voting out and undiscoverable.

    Better fix it guys

    New I Phone 5 with IOS6 and when I make blue-tooth calls via my Mercedes the recipients tell me that the call quality is VERY POOR (choppy, weak and muffled).  It seems like this is a software problem.  I'm posting this so (if Apple readsthis blog) they will know that there are plenty of us who need a solution.   By the way, it worked well on my 4S with ios5.

    Yup - since upgrading my iPhone 4S to iOS 6, bluetooth audio in my 2012 Jeep Patriot seems choppy, and cuts out.

    New iPhone5 and can no longer link to BMW X5. Phone can't even find the car.

     

    I would hope that Apple are reading these posts!

    I'm having a similar Bluetooth problem. I have a 2013 Subaru Forrester with Bluetooth built in. I could use it hands free to make calls and listen to iTunes on my iPhone 4s. Then I upgraded to iOS 6 and while the phone works fine, it no longer can control the audio functions. With iOS 5 I could pause/play, advance to the next song, go back. But with iOS 6, nothing. So I took a look at the phone, and its seeing the car as an AirPlay device. So I can send audio to the car and control it from the phone, which is the exact opposite of how it worked before.

    I have the exact same equipment, and problems, as fjr_birddog listed.  Everything was working perfectly under ios 5.  I've also noticed that my LG TV Magic Remote app no longer connects to my LG 60PM6700 TV since the upgrade . . . . but that's another topic.
