Bluetooth issues on iPhone SE? iOS 9.3.2 update fixes the problem!

One of the iPhone SE's few lingering bugs has been patched in the latest update to iOS 9.3, says Apple.

iOS 9.3.2, introduced today, reportedly fixes Bluetooth connectivity issues experienced by a number of users, many of whom went to our forums to complain and commiserate. The issue primarily affected those making phone calls over Bluetooth-connected speakers, which frustrated many drivers who rely on such tools to communicate safely while on the road.

Occasional Bluetooth issues have pestered iPhone users through the years, as Apple merely implements the standard, but doesn't control it. While Bluetooth 4.2, the most recent version, fixes many of the stability issues that afflicted smartphones and other connected devices in the past, some problems remain.

  • It's mind boggling that with all the public beta and everything; iOS still has major bugs for something as important as Bluetooth. Sent from the iMore App
  • All the different iPhones have different versions of Bluetooth, even though Bluetooth has been around a while it's still constantly being updated. Bluetooth has always worked better on iOS than Android for me
