RE: IOS 6.0.2 Just Released

Does the update include any fixes for iOS 6's Bluetooth?  pray

My i5 won't pair with my car's Alpine head unit (HU) - and it seems that iOS 6's version of Bluetooth won't pair with most makes of HU...  banging head against wall

EDIT: Ah, OK, seems that iOS 6 uses the latest, most sparkling version of Bluetooth, which 99.999999% of ICE manufacturers have yet to adopt.

Darn! Another prime opportunity for Apple-bashing denied  Tongue

Hmm, it seems that its backwards compatibility is selective: BlueAnt Z9, yes; Alpine HU, no  Angry

EDIT: Erm, umm, ahh, durrrr... just realised that while I was trying to pair the i5 and Alpine HU's Bluetooth, my old phone was in range of the Alpine, with its Bluetooth switched on and, thus, still paired with the HU doh!

Switched off the old phone, tried the i5 again and it found / paired with the HU in a few seconds  embarassed
