Am I the only one (still...) having issues with Bluetooth after upgrading to iOS 8.1...?

Hi fellas,
I guess my expectation level was way too high regarding this upgrade from iOS 8.0.2 to 8.1: my iPhone 6 still can't connect to Bluetooth peripherals, whatever they may be...
I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard, and a PC with Windows 8.1 update on it, and none of them can pair with the iPhone, no matter how hard I try.
Have you guys found workaround measures or (hopefully) solutions?
I swore today was my last day going to work with the crappy Apple-issue headphones that came with the phone, and I'd pack my faithful Sony Ericsson BT to work tomorrow...

Your english is very good! For Handoff/Continuity to work you need Bluetooth turned on on both devices and they need to be in range of each other -- but you do NOT go to the Bluetooth setting on either device and pair them. I know that is unusual and can think of no other case where that is done using Bluetooth, but that is how it works for Handoff & Continuity.
The following are the other things needed from Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac using Continuity
How to get started:
Sign in to the same iCloud account on all your devices.
Turn on Bluetooth on all the devices you want to use. Make sure your devices are near each other.
Connect all your devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
Turn off Handoff
To turn off Handoff on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > General > Handoff & Suggested Apps, and turn off the setting.
On your Mac, go to System Preferences > General and deselect the option to allow Handoff.
Phone calls
With Continuity, you can make and receive cellular phone calls from your iPad, iPod touch, or Mac when your iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network.
To make and receive phone calls, here's what you need:
Sign in to the same iCloud account on all your devices, including your Mac.
Your iPhone and your iPad or iPod touch need to use iOS 8 or later. Your Mac needs to use OS X Yosemite.
All devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
All devices must be signed in to FaceTime using the same iCloud account. This means any device that shares your Apple ID will get your phone calls. Look below for instructions on how to turn off iPhone cellular calls.
Wi-Fi Calling needs to be off. Go to Settings > Phone. If you see Wi-Fi Calling, turn it off.

  • Having issues with WiFi after upgrading to iOS 7.

    After upgrading my iPhone 5 to iOS 7 I'm having WiFi issues that I didn't have with iOS 6.  For example, on my home network YouTube videos hang multiple times in a 1 minute video, Facebook pages with heavy duty graphics take forever or don't load, and running Ookla speed test, all the test are slower.  On every other computers in the house, download is faster than upload, except on the iPhone 5 with iOS 7.  Anyone else seen this?

    Do the basics first. follow I would also clear cookies and data in settings > safari.

  • TS1569 iphone ios5.1 still having issues with Bluetooth

    Iphone Ios5.1 still having issues on Bluetooth connectivity.

    I lost The Bluetooth function completely two weeks ago. iPHONE IOS 5.1 .
    This is not a pairing issue, or wrong usage. Suddenly it didn't work in my car any longer. Resetting didn't help. I have tested against two other iPhones, my PC, my headset and my iPAD. (all this units have had BT connections with my iPHONE earlier)
    My iPhone Bluerooth is simply not working anylonger, not detectable and cannot "see" or find any other BT devices.
    Is this a software bug? Or simply a hardware error requiring physical repair?
    Cheers Rolf

  • Am I the only one still having this issue

    I realize IE put a fix in place in April 2008 for swf flash
    to no longer require click to activate. Am I the only one who still
    has this issue. I am running Vista and IE 7 and always have to
    click to activate. What am I doing wrong?
    Do I need a new plug in page reference to Adobe?

  • Issues with bluetooth after upgrading to OSX 10.8

    No bluetooth available after upgrading to mountain lion , i only can use it booting in safe mode.

    Reposting myself here:
    Have you made your user Library-folder visible in Finder?
    I did that in the Terminal and shortly after that the crashes started for me.
    I just updated to 10.8.2 and that made the user Library-folder invisible again.
    At the same time Bridge started behaving properly.
    Not saying that's anything other than a coincidence.

  • Is anyone having issues with sound after upgrading RAM?

    I recently bought a 2009 Mac Mini with 1GB of RAM. Everything was working fine so I decided to upgrade the RAM to make running more apps a little smoother.
    I took it to KRCS (an Apple Premium Reseller) and they put in another 1GB stick. I took the MM home and booted it up but no chime. I loaded iTunes and songs wouldn't play. I couldn't even turn the volume up or down.
    After taking it back to KRCS they verified all the connections were ok and everything was seated correctly, however the sound still wont work. They ran some hardware diagnostics and they said that it is showing that there is a sound devicde present but it isn't showing any input or output devices once booted in to OS X.
    Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing this? Could it be a firmware issue do you think?

    Morning peeps
    As mentioned I booked my Mac Mini in with an Apple Genius to see if they could shed any light on the problem. So I saw a very helpful guy called James (go figure 8-)) who looked first of all looked to see if there were any reported problems by Apple. He also had a look around the net to see if there were any suggestions but unfortunately this all proved to be fruitless. He then tried booting from a clean drive to see if it was a software issue but this again failed, leaving him a little stumped.
    Finally after a few minutes of looking at verious hardware information he decided to look at the RAM as the Mac was reporting the new 1GB stick I had installed was from a different manufacturer. Again no luck and at this point I knew what was comming...
    "It doesn't look like I will be able to fix the problem today."
    After all his efforts he couldn't seem to solve the issue so the next stange involves replacing some of the hardware. He showed me that he had gone ahead and ordered a new sound board, the ribbin that connects it to the main board and something else which escapes me at the moment, all of which is covered under the waranty.
    So after all that the issue still remains. My Mac Mini is at the Apple Store at the moment and is awaiting the new parts to be installed. James was confident that it could be fixed with these new parts, however he did say that if it couldn't be fixed then Apple would replace it with a new one. He also mentioned that they would try and get the RAM upgrade working once the new hardware was fitted, but if that is unsuccessful he is going to give me the RAM back to get a refund at KRCS.
    I think I have covered everything there - sorry if I started to ramble a bit
    If you need any more information then I would be more than happy to help.

  • I am still having issues with the TOC. I finally got several chapters and sections to show different pictures in the TOC, but have spent hours trying to figure out how to repeat it. This should be so simple. Is there an update? Please help us Apple.

    I am still having issues with the TOC pictures. I got several chapter/section photos to show up, but can't seem to repeat this success. It is some mystery that happened during a time that I had practically given up. This should be such a simple thing. Drag and place a picture into the placeholder and it shows up in the TOC....right? Help, help help! want to get this thing done and it's taken two days of work just get some of the photos to show up. I am going to have to publish this ibook with no photos in several sections.....why can't this be simple? I have even had someone else spend hours trying to figure this out. This software is such a GREAT idea....come with this little part of it.

    I had the same problem myself. I got to the point where I couldn't replace the photo, of a new chapter, in the TOC. What I did was to duplicate an existing chapter that was working and was able to replace it's TOC's photo. I also found that if you try different areas of the photo you can sometimes get it to replace correctly. For example, instead of dragging the new photo to the middle of an existing photo, try dragging it to the right top corner.

  • Am I the only one experiencing battery drain with the 6.1.3 upgrade?  It went from 100% to 63% in 7 hours WITH NO USE!

    Am I the only one experiencing battery drain with the 6.1.3 upgrade?  It went from 100% to 63% in 7 hours WITH NO USE!  I've had worse luck with the i5 than the i4.  This is the first time I regret being in a two year contract.  I might add that this is my 3rd i5

    So now 12 days later and another replacement I'm still having issues and apple still isn't helping. My phone has started shutting off unexpectedly again today. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go from here?

  • Mac Pro 6,1 STILL having issues with Open CL (4K scaling and SpeedGrade direct link grades)

    I've seen the staff responses to the issues of the new Mac Pro GPU saying that 10.9.4 fixes everything. For me, it has fixed my export issues, so I'm glad. I'm no longer getting lines and artifacts on my renders.
    That's great.
    However, I'm still having several issues, and they seem to be linked to Adobe and Open CL.
    Here's a video that shows what's going on:
    mac pro issues july 7 - YouTube
    Issue #1
    Like most of you probably, I'm doing 1080p exports of most things I'm working on. The first project shows a 1080p timeline with a mix of 4k, 5k, and 720p footage. Because zooming in so much on a 720p file in a 4k timeline looks so crappy, I'm doing 1080p timelines and scaling everything to the size it needs to be. I started in a 4k timeline then switched to 1080p because the 720p footage looked so terrible. However, in the 4k timeline, I didn't have any of the issues I'm showing in this first part of the video.
    When I switched to the 1080p timeline, I discovered a weird quirk: When I resize the 4k (or 5k) footage to the size it needs to be (which varies based on the frame I want), it goes back to the 100% view when I'm scrubbing through it. When I pause, the size of the video goes back to the way I set it. I show this in the video. Then I show what was my working solution for the time being: "scale to frame size", which brings all the videos to the size of the sequence frame size and works fine. Later, I turn off OpenCL in premiere and when I scrub through the video, it doesn't zoom back in or only stay at the size I set when stopped. For some reason all of these issues only happen at 50% scale or smaller. It doesn't happen at, say, 60%.
    I've tested this with raw R3D files and other 4K (or 5K) clips (even clips exported from After Effects) and the same thing happens. It doesn't seem to happen with 2.5k footage or 1080p footage.
    Issue #2
    This is the second project you'll see in the video.
    After grading in speedgrade (through direct link) I open my project back up in premiere and start playing it back. The video plays back with delays and frame drops. Now normally, this would be expected. But this is 1080p pro res footage, and this is just an effect added, and the yellow bar appears indicating that open CL should be accelerating the playback and it should do so smoothly.
    Maybe I was just wrong in assuming that a simple grade from speedgrade would be able to playback smoothly. I turn off the grade, and it plays normally.
    But then, when I turn off open cl and leave the grade on, the video plays back without ANY issues.
    So to me, it seems I'm still having issues with Open CL and adobe. I've found fixes that make it work temporarily, I don't need that kind of answer. However, I would like this to work. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Something I need to do to get this to work?
    Here are my specs:
    Mac Pro 6,1 (Late 2013)
    3 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5
    64 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 ECC
    AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB (x2)
    OSX 10.9.4
    Firmware: 2.20f18
    What you're seeing is latest version of Premiere (CC 2014, v8.0.0 [169] Build)
    Everything here is ProRes 422, running from a Promise Pegasus2 R4 RAID (drives: 4x Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB SATA 6Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST4000DM000) (that's thunderbolt 2).
    I've done everything: I've restarted my computer hundreds of times, I've reset NVRAM and PRAM and done power cycles.
    This isn't just some issue that started with 10.9.3 of OSX, the 4k issues happened when I first switched to a 1080p sequence back in February (2014) or so, which means it was an issue even with 10.9.2 and the previous firmware release.
    I've reported this issue to adobe.

    That crash appears to be casued by the Facebook plug-in.
    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7 and 10.8), make a new Library in that account, import some shots  and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

  • Still having issues with my podcast feed in iTunes

    I am still having issues with my podcast feed. The podcast is not updating in iTunes yet I can see some of the new episodes through an alternative RSS.
    My podcast feed is
    Not sure what I am doign wrong.
    Thankful for any help in this regard.

    I'm afraid I can't give you an easy answer. The Store has not updated since the episode of 10th November, but the later episodes appear when subscribing and there doesn't appear to be any problem with the feed.
    The Store does appear to go through sticky patches sometimes and take a long time to update some podcasts; it will probably catech up eventually and I'm afraid that there isn't really much you can do about it. You could try emailing Support ad podcasts 'at', but I suspect you will get a form answer telling you how to add episodes (which you already know).
