iPhone 4 Bluetooth issues stoke consumer reaction

iOS update Bluetooth issues prompt strong reaction from T3 readers

Apple’s list of problems seems to be growing by the day and following Monday’s report of the iOS 4.0.1 update affecting Bluetooth connectivity on the iPhone, you, the T3 readers, have responded in your droves to confirm your indignation at the latest Apple issue.

Update: Apple has now confirmed that it is 'looking into' issues with the iOS4 update on iPhone 3GS.

Responding on the T3 Twitter feed, a number of readers have been in touch confirming that since updating their iPhone devices to the supposed reception amending operating system, iOS 4.0.1, they have been unable to fully utilise their previously functional Bluetooth connectivity systems.

One reader known on Twitter as ‘theglesgabofh’ proclaimed via the micro-blogging site: “@t3dotcom Yes I am having issues as I currently cant seem to get it connected up to the Parrot Mki9200 handfree since upgrading iphone :( “

This comment was followed by those from further disgruntled iPhone owners including the Twitter tagged tomhall12 who claimed: “@t3dotcom I've had problems with the Bluetooth since updating to 4.0.1 will not connect at all! Although not suffered any signal problems!”

The updated operating system which was released to fix the iPhone 4’s signal loss issues, a fault Apple has attributed to a software malfunction that mis-displays the handset’s signal bars, has been reported to cause a number of new issues not just the loss of Bluetooth connectivity.

This was tackled by one tweeting reader, deanno2010, who declared: “@t3dotcom not only bluetooth, read apple forum iphone 3Gs after upgrade to ios4...so many problems,i've 1myself cant access app store”
