Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

As previously mentioned resetting the iPhone settings is the answer in getting the iPhone to work with Uconnect until Apple fixes this bug. I have had to perform these steps after upgrading iOS to 8.0 and 8.0.2

1. Delete the pairing on your car if one exists for your iPhone.
2. Delete the pairing on your phone for your car if one exists.
3. Go to SETTINGS
4. Click on GENERAL
5. Click on RESET
6. Click on RESET ALL SETTINGS (Note: There is no data loss in doing this).
6. Once your phone resets go to SETTINGS
7. Click on BLUETOOTH and delete any bluetooth devices that may exist.
8. Now pair your phone with your car.
9. Phone should work correctly with car now.


Siri and iMessages will need to be turned on under SETTINGS.


If you have a finger print recognition on your phone you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Click on SETTINGS.
2. Click on TOUTCH ID and Passcode
3. Setup your thumb
4. Turn on use Touch ID for: iTunes & App Store

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

You are lucky this works for you but for the majority of people this does not appear to make any difference.

What uconnect + iPhone hardware do you have?

This solution was initially provided by Walt Mossberg and it worked for my iPhone 6 on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Toyota Highlander and my boos's Lincoln MKX.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

my iPhone 6, with 8.0.2, works just fine with my Uconnect system, just deleted my previous phone, gave my new phone a different name and synced it to the car

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

This is what Walt Mossberg had to say:

Quote:
I had trouble at first getting the iPhone 6 to work reliably with my carís built-in Bluetooth. Apple gave me a solution, which involved removing old, unused devices from my far-larger-than-normal list of devices connected to iCloud. (The company said this had something to do with proper Bluetooth pairing on my particular car model.) But Bluetooth calling in the car worked fine after that. Apple says most customers arenít likely to have this issue, but it is promising a bug fix soon.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Will give it a go but skeptical as the relationship between the two seems illogical

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Shannon, I think you may need to upgrade your uconnect system, you can download an update from the uconnect website and check your version to see if an upgrade is available for your car by entereing the last 8 of it's VIN number.... The down load instructions sound more complicated than they are, I did one yesterday using my MAC computer... Pretty simple really.... May cure your phone connect problems

14.25.5 is the most current version, and I am already updated. I am not having any iPhone issues, my previous post was telling someone else to upgrade to the current version.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

On uconnect 14.25.5 with an iPhone 6 running ios 8.0.2 post advice above no significant difference.

Works flawlessly with an iPhone 5 running ios 8.0.2 or a Lumia 1020 running 8.1.

Hopefully ios 8.1 will resolve this for me.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Weird how Iphone 6, with 8.0.2, & UC 14.25.5, works flawlessly for me and others, and yet there are those who are having issues with the same set up, wonder why???

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Could be a difference in radios used in the phones?

Alot of people were reporting having wifi problems pre 8.0.2 but this didn't affect my phone.
