    Is anybody else having issues with bluetooth devices? I have bluetooth on my car stereo and for my motorcycle helmet, and since the move to iOS 7, I can no longer control fast forward, rewind, and pause with these device

     

    It really makes me angry that I've sunk a lot of money into devices that I could use my iPhone with, and Apple apparently doesn't take device functionality into consideration.

    Try:

     

    Settings/General/Reset - Reset Network Settings (you will have to re-enter your WiFi passcodes, but will not lose any other content)

     

    If that doesn't resolve the problem delete the BT devices from the iPhone, delete them from the device, and re-pair them.

    That's amazing, because I have had 5 iPhones, an original, a 3GS, a warranty replacement 3GS, a 4S, and recently a warranty replacement 4S. Each time I restore my backup from my previous phone and synced, and all of my music, apps, contacts, calendars, email accounts, texts - essentially everything that was on the previous phone appeared where it belonged on the new phone. All I had to do was re-pair my BlueTooth devices.

     

    Or isn't that what you were talking about?

    Ditto.  I've had an original, 3G, 4, 4S, and now a 5. Through pretty much every version of iOS from 1.0 to 7.0.2. I've never had a phone do anything but restore perfectly to the state the previous one was in... Only even had to re-pair bluetooth devices twice if memory serves.

    No - The devices pair fine - it's the controls. If I'm listening to music or a podcast while driving or riding my motorcycle, I can't control the phone (pause, play, rewind, fast forward) with my car stereo or helmet bluetooth, as I have in the past.

     

    Car stereo is a Pioneer DEH-6400, and helmet bluetooth is a Sena SMH-10. Both worked in controlling these functions before the upgrade to iOS 7. It's not so bad in the car, but on the motorcycle.....

    Did you try unpairing on both sides, then re-pairing? It's possible that some of the BT profiles got scrambled in the upgrade. Audio, stereo and controls are all different profiles.

    Yes, I had to re-pair both devices because of the new iPhone. Same story.

    I'm finding iOS 7 more unstable than iOS 6 on my iPad 2. I've had multiple app crashes from basic Apple programs like Mail, Calendar, Safari, and Contacts.

     

    In addition switching between apps isn't working right. For example when switching back to Safari open websites refresh requiring passwords to be re-entered, documents to reload, and forms to be re-filled. Many apps, like NY Times, don't return to the place they last were and other apps simply stop working. For example I use a timer app during exercise routines. It will unpredictably stop timing in the background as I switch to others apps.

     

    All of these issues do not exist under iOS 6. I'm running iOS 6 on my iPhone 5 and I have no problems. I'm planning on switching back on my iPad 5 until Apple issues a new release addressing these issues.

    In my experience IOS 7.02 is an abomination.

    On what planet does making something more time consuming, confusing and/or dysfunctional constitute an enhancement? Adding steps to prior intuitive one click processes and effectively hiding others is just dumb.

    Apple seems to be forgetting what made their company a success - usability, usability, usability.

    The latest update (7.0.3) did the trick and fixed the issues with bluetooth controls for me, both with my car stereo and my Sena Motorcycle helmet bluetooth.

    Sorry, I'd looked around some, but hadn't been regularly trawling through all the forums.
