    There isn't a bug in Bluetooth, most have no issues. What kind of HW are you trying to connect to, and for what reason? A little more information would go a long way into troubleshooting your issue.


    Same for mickgss.

    There is no specific Hardware. I tried i with my Blue&Me Car Phone-Connection: No connection; Media Receiver: No connection and last my Notebook: No conection. I do not believe that there is a problem with my hardware. The last update is the reason. I also ask google already and there are a lot of threads and prof. reports which refers to the same problem and also see the update as reason for this problems...

    To make it more clear: My Iphone found the connection but just for 1-2 seconds. Does not matter what kind of hardware I connect with it...

    Well, when you have had connection to a previous device, when you update iOS, you need to update the connection as well. You need to remove the connections to these devices in the phone, and the phone from the devices. Then put each device into discovery/pairing mode and put the iPhone into discovery/pairing mode and they should reconnect. As far as the notbook is concerned, the iPhone will only connect to a computer via Bluetooth in the case of tethering. There is no other Bluetooth connection between the iPhone and a notebook.

    Thx Chris,


    But I did it several times without success. For example: I "cleared and remove" my device (car phone connection) and tried to connect it once again. No change. The same result with my media receiver. I do not need the connection to my Notebook or media receiver (just for play) but I need the car connection to phone during driving.


    some other "pages" reports about this problem and "hopes" the next IOS uodate will fix this bug.

    I am pretty sure that this is no Hardware problem with my Iphone because a lot of colleagues have the same issue since update to 7.04. Do you know the start of Update 7.1?

    I have already replied to the other topic, but if that could help:


    I am having the issue, that the device is not visible for My Iphone 4 when looking for devices.


    My device uses a "HC-05 Bluetooth Module" and was visible to my iphone bevor the IOS7 came out.


    Sorry once again for double entry.

    Honestly it is my first apple device and I am a big fan of Iphone5, so sh*t happens and some bugs are just a "natural happening" but the way of solution and especially the way of communication is important to keep customers stay. So for me it is just important when this issue will be solved by apple and when such info and update will come...


    I am just easy thinking. Some goes wrong, Ok, fix it and talk about it. Do not search for faults on orther sides. Just time and energy consuming.

    (hope you understand my german-english) :-)

    Try this support document It just sounds as if you are not putting your device into discovery/pairing mode. Check the user guide to the vehicle to see how to get that car device into pairing mode. Most of the complaints that I have read here are corrected when the user makes sure they get the car stereo or other bluetooth device into discovery/pairing mode before doing that to the phone and trying to connect.

    What is this HC-05 module device? Can you be more specific, is it a radio, speaker system, what?

  • eXtide Level 1 (0 points)

    it is a common module used by developer as a ready bluetooth solution for their devicec


    my device uses "Audio" profile, so it is visible for all androids and older ios as a an audio device.

  • Proxit32 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok Thx, I try it once again and give you feedback!

  • ChrisJ4203 Level 8 (47,784 points)

    What kind of device is it? Understand the iPhone uses the most current Bluetooth profile, so if your device does not support this profile, it could explain why it is not being "seen" by the device or the iPhone. See this support document.

    I am sorry, was not that precise. I am talking about pairing. My device is not being discovered by iphone at all, so is not visible.


    To your question about the profiles, it is HFP1.6 just like listed in

    But as far as i know, the profile is not important untill you have paired your device and your phone. Only after pairing profile matters, but may be i am wrong.
