Here Are The Simple Tricks To Fix iOS 8.3 Bluetooth Issues
Every software contains bugs and it is near to impossible to detect all the bugs before releasing it as most of the bugs are found by common users who actually use the software. But it generally gives a negative impression about the developers raising question about their adequacy. Apple, despite known for providing quality software, also faces these issues and that is why the company has been releasing newer updates of iOS so rapidly.
The latest iOS update is iOS 8.3 that provides Bluetooth functionality on Apple’s mobile devices. However, there are some issues users have been facing while making their iOS devices work with other Bluetooth devices such as car stereos, earphones and speakers. Here we discuss some tricks you may try to make Bluetooth-pairing work successfully.
Turn Bluetooth off and then turn on
Perhaps this is the easiest way so let’s discuss it first. All you have to do is toggle Bluetooth of your device off/on. This allows the device to release the resources and kill the processes it has been running related to the Bluetooth service. There is a chance that some inconsistencies may have risen that may be preventing your Bluetooth to work successfully. So give it a try.
You can do this using Control Panel by swiping up from the bottom of the display or by navigating to Settings > Bluetooth.
Reboot your iOS device
Windows users will be knowing this trick already. Just like you have been fixing issues on your Windows PC or laptop by simply rebooting the device, do it on your iPhone or iPad. This trick also resolves any inconsistencies which may be present.
Forget the Bluetooth device and pair again
There is a possibility that you may be attempting to connect to a new Bluetooth device and the software would be considering the new device as the same you have connected to before. To resolve the issue, simply forget the device that is saved in your devices section and attempt to pair again.
Go to Settings then Bluetooth, and tap ‘i’ button next to the device you are trying to connect to. Then tap the Forget This Device > Forget Device button. Now attempt to pair with the device again.
These are the easiest tricks you can try to fix the Bluetooth issues. If these tricks do not solve your problem, you may try to reset network settings or restore to iOS 8.3 using iTunes. If all else fails, you may want to downgrade to iOS 8.2.
