My iPhone 4 with iOS6 does not connect automatically to my Jabra Freeway BT Handsfree with FM transmitter. I also have intermittent dropouts, a second of silence every fifth minute or so. Worked perfectly with iOS5.

I am have just upgraded phone to a 5 as well as the ioS6. The bluetooth is not syncing with my phone to my car which is a Ford Edge. Very frustrating...have to use USB in the mean time. Ford Sync customer service assistance said that there would be an announcement via Apple sometime in October about this issue.

I noticed 2 things -
1 the cell phone battery status no longer works via bluetooth (Pioneer Head Unit) on both my Iphone 4 & 5 running IOS6.
2 My Alpine CBE-136BT can play the music as long as I control it from my Iphone5. I used to be able to control the iPhone from the headunit - much safer. Also the Artist / Album / Song doesn't show up anymore on the head unit.
I'm very disappointed in Apple - I understand that I have to deal with the physical side of Apple moving to the ligtnening connector, but this Bluetooth nonsense is crap.
Over the past few yesrs I've become a real MAC fan, on my 3rd iphone, Second MacBook and this is the first time I feel really let down.
I sincerely hope there's an IOS6.0.1 REALLY soon...

After the "wifi problem" with my iPhone 5 I got this! :-(
I solved Thankfully, the problem, click on the name of the device even if it was already connected via bluetooth. After this i can stream music with my Midland BT Next.

If the BT acessories stop work after install IO6, turn off your iphone and turn on.
After that, try again pairing the BT acessories and "voilá".

Marcio, have you read this topic at all? We've all tried that. Multiple times. We've tried clearing the bluetooth settings as well. None of the proposed solutions solve the problem. This is a software bug, plain and simple. Turning the device off and on and then re-pairing won't do anything.

I unkowingly updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 6 and was experiencing the same problems that almost everyone else here was having. I have a Kenwood Excelon KPC-X796 that I just put in my Jeep a month ago. I love the Bluetooth functions (artist/title scroll, hands free phone, etc). I was hit with the glitch, too. I get BT audio and base phone, but that's all. Quite disappointing. So I tried to do the restore routine. Even though I restored an old backup that I know had iOS 5, it still put 6 back and wiped out almost all of my apps, all of my photos, and had to reinstall my music. I just find it amazing that Apple didn't have the foresight to check Bluetooth functionality on iphones other than the 5. Now I get to have fun putting all my apps back and hoping I have photos in my "manual" pic backup.
PLEASE Apple! Do something about this. Can it be THAT difficult for your programmers?

@Marcio Guth: Yeah... Thanks for that eeeeassssyy solution!! BUT: Problem #1 is... We already had this suggestion about 4-5 pages before. Problem #2 is.. It didn't help me. There were absolutly no changes to my Alpine stereo with this trick. So.. Nice try, but not a real solution unless it works for everyone.
I also have two question: 1. Which device are you pairing with your phone? 2. Does it help "forever"? So, done once and from that time on connection and full functionality stays? Even on the next day?
Regards and best greats to Brazil

After I install the IO6, the BT of my car player, one KENWOOD KDC-BT742U stop work w/ iphone. I try many times pairing and nothing happens.
After I turn off and turn on my iphone, I've got pairing my player again.
Maybe this solution works in certains cases!
PS: sorry for my poor english

Marcio: Right, and I understand that. I'm not saying you're lying. I'm saying that the solution you proposed doesn't work for 99% of the people experiencing the problem. What's more, the way you wrote it makes it sound like the pairing wasn't working.
For us the problem isn't that we can't pair. I can pair my phone to my Pioneer AVH-2400BT just fine. The problem is that the track information from the Bluetooth audio and changing tracks from the head unit stopped working.

The basics of software development is to provide the ability to roll back UNCONDITIONALLY. Perhaps you should start thinking about this.
Actually, it's to restore from a pre-upgrade backup; unfortunately iOS backups only back up the data, not the operating system.

Take your best shot!
No offense intended to you either, but I think since this is on Apple's site, it's important that Apple sees the sheer numbers of our complaints, since we're all having the same Bluetooth issues and want our voices to all be seen and heard.

Well, unfortunately I am in the same boat... I have a Clarion NX602 Nav. Unit which I was paired to under 5.1.1 streaming audio and life was good. After the IOS 6 upgrade I lost it, my wife has not upgraded her iphone and it
works perfectly still. I performed all the latest firmware updates to my NAV unit which is now running faster than ever but the IOS 6 device is just having issue's all the way around. When you spend that much money to build your system this gets frustrating very quickly. I hope to see a resolution soon, the whole point of new releases is better service and more features not the lack there of.... the thing that burns me the most is Apple will not let you go back to the previous version that worked !

Looking around the communities, it is obvious that this problem is common for every iPhone 4 owner who uses Bluetooth in their vehicles. Twenty pages here and forty-two in another forum. More and more in others. With, I dare say, hundreds of users having one common problem, you would think Apple would at least acknowledge it and tell us that they're working on it or tell us we're out of luck. The other common factor seems to be that we've all spent an ****** full of cash to put good quality stereo units in our cars. This being so we could take advantage of the advanced features of the units... LIKE BLUETOOTH. I'd like to say that I'm confident that Apple won't leave us all hanging on this issue...

This is just a guess, and it doesn't make it easier to swallow...
But it would not surprise me if the devices you are all trying to pair with iOS6 don't follow the protocol precisely. Some companies take shortcuts or simply don't care - and when a device (typically from Apple) is very strict with a protocol (this happens often with USB devices which even mis-identify themselves to the computer), they don't work together.
If this is something that is actually Apple's fault, I'm sure they'll find a way to patch it with an update (hopefully soon). If this is something that's due to those other manufacturers, it all depends on them updating firmware or software to more accurately work with the protocol. And... they don't have much reason to do so. The right thing would be to fix it, of course.
