    has anyone considered that this issue could bring incentive to purchase a NEW iphone 5 that will work?

  • crankerchick Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    That doesn't make sense. It is an iOS 6 thing and is broken on the iPhone 5 too.

     

    iPhone 5 here and 2012 Acura TL Tech with no AVRCP 1.3 with my iPhone 5. The phone pairs, address book imports, music streams, and steering wheel controls work. I just don't see any track information. I was looking forward to this too.

     

    For those muttering Android, you will be unhappy to know that Android doesn't support AVRCP 1.3 at all so that won't solve your problems if your units depend on that profile. You can unlock, root, and install a custom ROM that supports it, but even then it will only work with the stock music player. Third party apps like Pandora generally don't offer it since Android doesn't actually support it.

     

    I hope Apple will fix this if it is broken or will add it back if they took it out.

    Hi everyone...

    Just wanted to add myself to the huge list of people with this problem. Having issues with iPhone 4S, running iOS 6 and a Kenwood  KDC-BT92SD. I can still do Streaming music via bluetooth and talking in handsfree-mode, but can't control the iphone from the headunit or get any meta data on the Display as were shown on iOS 5.

    Hope Apple will Release an updated iOS 6.x soon.

     

    greetings from Germany

    @William Kucharski...thanks for adding some levity to this thread.  I've said the same thing a couple times as well.  Don't be so quick to blame Apple for this problem.  If the fault is Apple's, we'll find out soon enough and everyone's venom will be rightly justified.  If not, and the problem is with OEMs dragging their feet and falling asleep during the upgrade cycle, then the stereo manufacturers will have a major problem.  Either we'll get a fix in the form of an OS update or a firware update.

     

    Me? I'm betting on a firmware update from the OEMs.  That's the only thing they can do.  If it's a hardware problem...oh boy.  That's another story.

    I think everyone is looking at who is at fault for updates on a fix.  Apple is saying it is not a bug, they informed the manufactors about this and look for an update from them.  I believe all the stereo manufactors are saying the same thing, that they had no idea about this, it is a bug in iOS 6 and look to apple for a fix.  I am looking where the fault lies to know who I need to ask every once in a while how it is coming with the fix, and I am sure that is what most people are looking for as well.

    My phone was 100% fine before the update as was the wifes, the mother in laws, my brothers and the brother in laws. I got my brother to bring his round on 5.11 and worked perfect on my car stereo, Connected mine and doesnt work. the fault is IOS6 not the stereo manufacturer the rest of us updated and have suffered the same issue the one on 5.11 nothing wrong and no issues at all.

     

    Are apple seriously saying none of the beta testers drive or use bluetooth? I would have thought at least 1 beta tester would have owned a car with a bluetooth stereo and noticed the problems i refuse to change the stereo it cost me too much i would much rather swap the phone wich is no longer fot for purpose and is pretty much a paper weight O_o

  • crankerchick Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I have read a few places now and between that reading and my own common sense, it seems to me that this is simply a lack of backward compatibility with AVRCP 1.3 which would put Apple at fault. Most standards include a statement of backward compatibility and this seems to be a problem with exactly that. It works fine in iOS 5 and not in iOS 6.

     

    I just want someone to fix it and honestly hope it is a fix on the part of Apple because I don't foresee an update for my radio from Acura anytime soon.

     

    My problem is also worse than I thought because when my unit gets messed up upon connection, not only will it not stream music properly, more importantly, I have no audio for voice calls. This is a problem that I won't put up with in a brand new car. I'm not going to sell my car over Bluetooth issues but I sure will get a different phone. I don know if it goes in this bad state when not trying to stream music but just reconnect for voice calls but I can say that I'm not tryin to find out when my phone rings while I'm on the road that I have no audio. 

  • JBoots75 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I think all fingers really point at the iOS 6 update as being the cause of this.  When I was running a iPhone 4s 5.1.1 with a Pioneer AVH P3400BH everything worked fine as song tags displayed and radio controls worked via Bluetooth.  I did the iOS 6 update and went out to my car to pair the device and played a song and the only thing I can do it turn up and down the volume.  I do have to say that everything works fine with the cable plugged in though.  I did downgrade the iOS 6.0 to 5.1.1 and restored my iPhone from a previous backup and I still have the same issue.  Tonight I will reload the iOS 5.1.1 and not use a restored backup and see if that makes a difference.  I will post my findings but ether way this blows and Apple needs to step up with a fix.  I could see if it was just Pioneer having issues but from the posts it sounds there are more people having the same issue with different OEM's then just Pioneer.

  • rustykerr123 Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I also believe it is apple's fault, I went through the same thing.  My stereo is the Pioneer 4400BH and is 3 or 4 weeks old now, worked the few days before iOS 6, upgraded and does not work.  I am lucky, I do not have any issue with the connection droping out every few minutes like some of the other people are having.  I have a 1 hour commute to work and 1 hour back, I stream buletooth the whole way.  Until 2 nights ago, I did not have the option of USB becuase I forgot to plug it into the back USB port and run the cable.

     

    Just because I believe it is apple's fault does not mean apple will admitt to it though.  I have thought about it, if I was to get fedup with waiting, I spent more on the stereo alone then the phone with AT&T's early uprage fee, so I would buy a new phone before thinking of replacing the stereo again.

     

    I personally don't really care who is at fault as long as they fix it, I just would like to bug them (as I am sure everyone else)  every few days to add some stress to attempt to speed them up.

  • crankerchick Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I'm new to iPhones and have never had a problem like this with any of my previous apple products. I guess I will have to dig out a phone number and spend some time out of my day to call and report this issue, just so I can be one more added voice to the masses.

    Waiting for W.K. Appleshill to come along again to tell us we're all crazy.

    So, it's just dumb luck that most Bluetooth headends work just fine with iOS 6?

     

    If you want to blame Apple beta testers, then how about the fact that certainly there are engineers at Alpine, Kenwood, and other companies who have a developer account and therefore used developer seeds of iOS 6 when Apple released them several months ago?  Why do they not bear any respoinsibility?

     

    Once again, we'll find out who's to blame soon enough, but certainly if it were an Apple bug any number of Android fan engineers would have had the issue root caused and posted to pro-Android forums by now.

     

    If the message above is meant to refer to me, I've never said anyone is crazy, simply we don't have enough information to assess who's at fault as of yet.

    My 3GS worked just fine with our JVC after market Bluetooth stereo (KD-R526) until I upgraded to IOS 6. It wouldn't even find the Bluetooth device. Now with the iPhone 5 I am having the same problem. No matter what I do I cannot get the Bluetooth to connect or even find the Bluetooth connection.

    Note your issue is slightly different than that of most people here, and you might have better luck if you created a new topic regarding your particular issue.

    I've been monitoring this thread for a while now, since i 'fixed' my issues with a quick downgrade to 5.1.1 whilst the firmware was still being signed (JBOOTS75 - I had to clear and re-pair devices for full functionality to return btw) and have been getting more and more sick of the Apple apologists.

     

    Even if the bugs lie in the manufacturers head units and/or Parrot firmware IT IS STILL APPLES FAULT, and I'll tell you why:

     

    See the side my Alpine box (yes, it's retorical): it displays a made for iphone logo, as do plenty of units from all manufacturers still in the supply chain.

     

    I can't make and release a Toaster and just slap a logo like that on it. Ergo, Apple must approve use, which should require compliance testing (If it doesn't - APPLES FAULT). I would not be suprised if a substantial fee was levied for the privelage of displaying and marketing products with such a benefit . Apple should have a database of approved products or how else would they sue TX's Amazing iPhone Toaster (If it doesn't - APPLES FAULT). Thus they should ensure any updates dont 'break' ALL approved units, maintaining compliance. However, I accept that some bugs/errors may not be able to be fixed but customers should be clearly advised which units are affected in release notes, they can then make an informed decision whether to 'upgrade' (as it didn't - APPLES FAULT).

     

    But, but, but, that would take time and cost money: www.boohoohoo.com. Hand's up who got their kit for free?
