Hey there Holkan,
Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!
I was researching what you might be able to do to troubleshooting the bluetooth connectivity.
Found this article for you named iOS: How to troubleshoot Bluetooth connections found here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4562
Begin troubleshooting with these preliminary steps.
- Check that you are in range of the Bluetooth device with which you are trying to pair your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Most Bluetooth devices have a range of approximately 30 feet.
- On your iOS device, tap Settings > Bluetooth and find your device in the list. If your device says Not Connected, tap the name of your device to attempt to connect it.
- Tap Settings > Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth off and then on again.
- Make sure that your Bluetooth accessory is turned on and fully charged or connected to power.
- Restart your iOS device.
- Tap Settings > Bluetooth and locate the Bluetooth accessory you are currently connected to or attempting to connect to. Then tap and Forget this Device. Try to pair your Bluetooth accessory again.
- Note: You may need to re-enter your Bluetooth accessory PIN if your accessory requires one. Some common PINs are 0000, 1111, and 1234.
- Restart your Bluetooth accessory by turning it off and then on again1.
- Update your device to the latest version of software. See how to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
- If your Bluetooth accessory has upgradeable firmware, check to see that you have the latest version1, 2.
If the issue persists I would next recommend this section from down the bottom of the article:
- If you see the word "Connected" next to a Bluetooth accessory in Settings > Bluetooth, your iOS device is already paired to a Bluetooth accessory. Remember, you can only connect to one Bluetooth accessory at a time.
- If your Bluetooth accessory requires a PIN for pairing, be sure that you are entering the correct PIN1.
- Reset network settings by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
- Note: This will reset all network settings including: previously connected Wi-Fi networks and passwords, recently used Bluetooth accessories, VPN and APN settings.
All the best,
I have the same problem.
It worked fine until I chose to upgrade to iOS 7, kind of regret that now if this problem persists.
I tried what is suggested, that does not work.
The wheel on the phone keeps spinning and the bluetooth speaker does not show up.
On vacation last week my iPhone bluetooth worked with the rental car audio system.
iPhone 4s, iOS 7.0.3
Macbook Pro version 10.8.5
I have this probelm too.
I had no problem until I upgraded to iOS7 ...and like jannics80 the 'wheel' on the phone keeps spinning and the bluetooth speaker simply doesn't show up.
And agin...like jannics8- the bluetooth works absolutley fine in my car.
Two very expensive bits of kit that can't talk to each other.....Mmmmm...???
I tried to update the Bose speaker the way it says in the speaker-instructions, that didn't work.
Maybe Bose has the problem - then again I think apple should make products that works with other things, not the way around. Especially since it worked on the previous iOS-system.
Now I just use it with aux-cable So that's kind of a bummer since having the phone nearby is nice...
probably like you the BOSE speaker worked fine with a previous version of iOS.
So Apple then deliver a new OS that doesn't work with certain exsiting hardware. That's not Bose's fault...that's an Apple issue. Surley Apple test there software against harware manufacturers kit..?? if not...that's poor software design.
Not quite sure if I'd buy a bluetooth speaker..then only to find that the only way I could use it was via an aux cable.
Users like jannics and I are customers..we've spent money with you....a lot of money. I'm sure there are thousands of people with this issue....not just jannics and I.
So come on Apple...where's the solution...??
