iOS 11 includes hundreds of new features and improvements for iPhone. But like any major iOS software update some users seem to be facing problems after updating to iOS 11 such as Wi-Fi / Bluetooth connection problems, draining battery life a lot faster etc.
Some users seem to be having problems connecting their iPhones and iPads to Bluetooth devices (iBlue Smart Gate) after installing the iOS 11 update.
The first step you'd want to take is to ensure that the problem is with your iPhone or iPad and not with the Bluetooth accessory you're trying to connect to.
How to Fix iOS 11 Bluetooth Problems
If you find out that the problem lies with your iPhone or iPad running iOS 11, here are a few solutions you could try:
1. Turn off Bluetooth and Reboot
The first thing to try is to turn off your Bluetooth and restart your iPhone or iPad:
• Turn off Bluetooth by going to Settings > Bluetooth and turning off the Bluetooth toggle. • Hard reset your iPhone by holding the Home button (Volume down button on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) and the Power button until you see the Apple logo. • Now enable Bluetooth again from Control Center or Settings > Bluetooth. • Try connecting to the device now. If the problem still isn't solved, try the next solution.
2. Reset Network Settings
If the tip not worked, you could also try resetting your network settings. A side effect of doing this is that all your Wi-Fi settings will also be cleared, so you might have to rejoin Wi-Fi networks, and configure VPN all over again.
Here's how to reset network settings:
• Open Settings and navigate to General > Reset • Tap Reset Network Settings • You'll be required to enter your passcode, if you have one. • Confirm your action in the popup
3. Restore and Setup as new iPhone
This is not ideal, but if none of these tips fix your issues, the last resort is to restore your iPhone or iPad via iTunes, and set it up as a new device. This way, you start afresh, and get rid of possibly problematic customizations and settings on your device. Follow the instructions in the post linked below to do a clean restore to the latest version of iOS via iTunes.
iBlue Smart Gate works with the free Smart Key app to create keys, grant access, view the activity log, and more, available for Android™ and iOS®. You can even use your Apple watch to lock/unlock your door, view your activity log, and receive instant notifications. Buy Smart Gate: http://iblue.eu/store/
Apple has officially released iOS 10.2.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iOS 10.2.1 is likely a bug fix and performance improvement release. The initial beta was released on December 14 with a second beta issued before the holiday break. We’ll test the official version and highlight any changes discovered below.
iOS 10.2.1 is latest software update after the previous iOS 10.2 update. Released on December 12, iOS 10.2 brought Unicode 9.0 emoji characters, three new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus wallpapers, a new TV app, additional camera features, new Messages screen effects, and more.
Major changes aren’t expected in iOS 10.2.1, although a new iOS 10.3 beta is rumored and may include a new Theater Mode toggle accessible in part via Control Center ahead of iOS 11 later this year.
Developers on the iOS 10.2.1 beta will not see an update as the beta build and released build numbers are the same (14D27). As we await those major releases, we’ll test the latest iOS 10.2.1 software update and note any changes here.
Just days after Apple seeded a third beta version of iOS 10.2.1 to developers, the company on Thursday issued a fourth iteration of the forthcoming operating system for testing.
The latest iOS 10.2.1 beta release, identified as 14D27, arrives just three days after Apple seeded build 14D23 to developers and mere hours after the fourth beta of macOS hit distribution servers.
While specific changes are left unmentioned in today's release notes, the timing and build number suggests only minor bug fixes and improvements are included in the new software.
Apple appears to have returned to its usual beta software release schedule following a holiday break, issuing a third iOS 10.2.1 beta alongside new beta builds for macOS, tvOS, and watchOS on Monday. The company seeded initial beta builds in in mid-December which were followed by second versions on Dec. 20.
Developers who have not already provisioned their iPhone or iPad to receive over-the-air updates can download iOS 10.2.1 through Apple's developer portal. Apple ID owners who enrolled their device to test Apple betas can download today's seed via Apple's Beta Software Program website.
The History of Bluetooth Bluetooth technology was created in the late 90s when companies were coming up with ways to eliminate cords and make products operate together wirelessly. In the early 2000s, a special interest group was formed that was devoted to Bluetooth technology which is now the Bluetooth SIG. To be able to use Bluetooth technology in your products, you need to become a member of the Bluetooth SIG. After that, you will have access to the technology and obtain a license to use the Bluetooth trademark. The current standard for Bluetooth is version 4.2. Bluetooth 5 should be available in the coming year and will add more IoT functionalities, including range, speed, and beacons (location activation). Where Can You Find Bluetooth? With over 3 billion Bluetooth products on the market, chances are you tripped over one between brushing your teeth and drinking a cup of coffee. Bluetooth technology is everywhere from smartphones and tablets, speakers and headphones, and sports and fitness devices and other wearable technology. Increasingly, people looking to live a healthier life are incorporating wearable technology to help them achieve their goals. The sharing and monitoring of these devices allow the users to share the content with themselves across multiple platforms as well as with their healthcare providers. IoT, smart home, and smart industrial applications are continuing to join the market in an exciting way. Imagine Bluetooth in a light switch that talks to the light bulb to tell it when to turn on or off. Then that same smart light switch is connected to the door lock so that when the front door is opened, the light switch knows to tell the light bulb to turn on and illuminate the room. Is There Too Much Bluetooth? Will your Bluetooth stop working if you have multiple devices in the same room? Fortunately, that has not become a concern. Bluetooth uses adaptive frequency hopping, which allows the device to switch frequencies to continue to operate at optimal levels. This also helps if more than one Bluetooth device enters a space. By hopping to another frequency, the devices will not collide on the same frequency. The pairing of Bluetooth devices, as well as management of them, will become easier as new technology developments are released. Consider what Apple did by cutting the cord on their headphones—this will help encourage other companies to come up with similar innovative solutions for their products. However, cutting the cord is not as simple as it sounds. Innovators need to consider how the power will be consumed, how much data the device will send, and how the audio will be transferred and at what quality. Improving these capabilities and others will help devices become more intelligent. Is Bluetooth Secure? The current Bluetooth standard, 4.2, is government grade. The market chooses the appropriate level of security that goes into products. Taking that into consideration, the $10 Bluetooth speakers you picked up at the checkout counter probably are not as secure as the $300 speakers. Chances are, the audio is not as good either. If security is a concern, you can look at the specifications list for the product. Purchase the products that include the most secure version of Bluetooth technology to meet your security needs.
