Apple ios8 and bmw bluetooth issues

So i had a few friends tell me that they cant connect their iphones properly to bmw bluetooth using ios8

do this it works

go to settings

go to icloud menu

logout of icloud

go to general menu

go to reset

reset network settings

reconnect your Bluetooth in your bmw after the phone resets

log back into icloud

hope this helps anyone thats been having issues

I cant be held responsible for lost data do this at your own risk

done it to 6 phones now with no issues, but still might be a risk to some

Just ran down to try this. THANK YOU! I had done some Google searching and many said to Reset the Network settings... but none had mentioned the iCloud part. Worked like a charm. So excited to use Bluetooth in the new purchase!

If I think what you mean by cold reset no it won't work, you have to turn iCloud off and reset the network settings and pair the iPhone before you log into iCloud again

Mine paired right away but the iPhone will come up with incompatible device on the screen from time to time. It plays fine and steering wheel controls work. I think the power draw on the USB might be a bit higher than the 4 and 5 iPhones and this pops up the error on the screen. I notice that the 6 doesn't charge very fast if you're using GPS and a map app. Same goes for Escort Live.

As far as I know the usb in the bmw only supports 500 ma and the iPhone 6 can draw more than that, it may be overloading the usb port.

I use the bmw power plug in the cig lighter it does around 1 amp and use Bluetooth to stream music

It's always great to be a beta tester.

All now good for me with the iOS 8.1 update. But, FFS Apple...you should test all this before release, especially since BMW is often cited as some type of "strategic partner"!

I always hold off upgrading until you really need it as there is always bugs with any new release, especially as big as ios8

Really weird seeing these issues come up for some people but not others.

Do your cars have iDrive or no? I've had no problem with mine on iOS 8.0, 8.0.2, and now 8.1. With each iOS version my phone happily connected when I got into the car, started streaming music when I used the iDrive controls, and I was able to make and receive calls.

I wonder what the difference was? I didn't really do anything fancy or different with iCloud.

I was fine with iOS 8 which came with my iP6...it was the 8.0.2 patch that screwed up my phone's ability to answer or make calls; music still streamed fine. So I didn't have any option but to update as soon as iOS 8.1 was available.

without being a programmer and getting down into the code, apple will never admit to screwing up.

From my deductions and the phones I dealt with it had to do with how the iPhone was named, if it had a complex name it would screw up the Bluetooth connection.

Once you reset the network connections it named your iPhone as iPhone and not Gary's iPhone 32 gb or the sort for example.

But you had to reset all the network settings to simplify how it handled the Bluetooth connections, but that's only speculation and can't be sure but it worked.

Hi Guys,

Has anyone had an issue when making a call through BT & you can't hear anything (including ringing), then audio comes through few seconds after the other person has answered their phone?

Receiver is sitting on the end of the line for 5 or so seconds before we 'connect' and hear each other..?

iPhone 5s, 8.02.. updated OS and phone (from iPhone 5) at the same time

Cheers, Simon

Update to 8.1 seemed to fix all issues thus far.
