I am having problem with the Bluetooth on my iPad and my MacBook Air. When I am using my Bluetooth headset (jay bird) while watching  streaming video on the iPad, the video down stream is very slow and therefore pauses a lot. When I switch the audio from Bluetooth to iPad speaker the video down stream is faster and the video plays smoothly. When my iPad is pair with my logitech Z515 Bluetooth speaker it will play for 15 minutes then the audio will go away but both devices are connected as indicated by the Bluetooth symbol in iOS. I started to observe this problem after the last last iOS update ( iOS ver 4.3.5).

iPad 2, iOS 4.3.3, Love it.

    Your problems may just be a coincidence when they happened.  If you are streaming from the Internet, your connection might have slowed down at the times you noticed the problems.


    One thing you can try is to unplug your WiFi router for a few seconds.  Then reset the iPad's network.  Go to Settings-General-Reset-Reset Network Settings.  Resetting should affect both Bluetooth and WiFi, so you may need to repair and/or reconnect.
