Just downloaded 3.0 and was able to connect using bluetooth motto S9 but the audio and video are out of sync. Anybody else experienced this problem?

    I have the same problem, over Bluetooth I have a delay nearly one sec.
    And the skip, forward / backward buttoms on the S9 don´t work.
    Also the volume control don´t work correct, they work but it is allways to
    loud.

    I also am experiencing this delay when watching videos with the Motorola bluetooth headphones. Any idea of a fix?

    Same issue for me. Audio is way out of sync.

    Does anyone know if this is a problem with the iPhone or if it is a problem when using bluetooth headphones with all portable devices? Is there always going to be a lag due to the transmission from iPhone to headphones?

    I went to Best Buy last night to complain about my s9 also. He tried my phone yuk then his palm or whatever and it was fine then he used a employee's iphone and had the same problem he said it is a software problem. Does Apple know about this I wonder?

    There is a transmission delay for the audio. You get the same delay attempting to watch a video on iTunes while streaming audio to an airport express which is why iTunes won't play video when remote speakers are selected.. To fix the problem on my Mac, I use Airfoil which has a video player that delays the video to sync with the streaming audio. I have yet to see a fix for the audio delay using the iPhone's bluetooth.

    Hey guys, I had the same issue with a Jabra BT530 mono headset. I found a workaround until apple decides to acknowledge that it is an issue.

    1. Toggle Airplane mode on
    2. Toggle Airplane mode off.
    3. Re-Connect your BlueTooth headset.

    Interestingly, if you restart your iPhone it will continue to work. If you reset your network settings it will revert back to the delay.

    Let me know how it goes!

    The solution I found that works about 9 times out of ten is:

    Bring up the video and puase it once it starts paying.

    Turn off the headset.

    Turn on the headset.

    Once the A2DP profile is connected (the volume bar on the paused video will fade out), unpause the playback and the audeo/video streams will be synched up.

    Occasionally it will not synch up and I have to repeat the steps, but that's rare.

    Also rare is sometimes I'll hear the A2DP connect tone on my headset followed immediatly by the disconnect tone. That's a pairing issue and I just cycle it again to reconnect.

    I'm using a Motorola S705 headset for what it's worth.

    Hope this helps some.

    This work around is FANTASTIC!!!! I was so excited for the bluetooth part of 3.0, then totally disappointed when the audio and video didn't sync up. I have been searching the internet daily since June 17th trying to find a solution. You have provided it to me and I thank you!!!!

    I have used this method several times and it has worked flawlessly each time. I did not try the airplane mode method simply because this one worked for me already.

    Again, thank you for your help!!!!!

    Thanks from me as well, that pause and reconnect workaround is a life saver.

    Thank you! That worked! Finally I can play along with music videos on my drums and not be all confused.

    Glad to hear that the pause/reconnect/resume trick is working for others as well.

    Glad to have been able to help.

    I'm pleased to say that this worked for me and my bluetooth mono headset.
    Thanks for the tip!
  • mpantoja Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I can't believe that worked. I had audio lag even for system sounds (swipes, keystrokes, etc.). I turned on Airplane mode and tested a movie. It worked! Why?

    Even after turning Airplane mode off, audio lag was gone. THANK YOU!

    This solution needs to be promoted until Apple addresses this issue.
