iOS 8+ uConnect

Apple has released iOS 8 for existing iPhones and the iPhone 6/6+ with iOS 8 pre-installed.


There have been reports of UConnect incompatibilities. Can those that have either upgraded to iOS 8 or purchased an iPhone 6/6+ with it or forum leaders, please post related success and issues that are being identified, possible work arounds, or info on upcoming uConnect versions related.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Have you tested:



1. Make calls

2. Receive and pickup calls

3. Receive a text message

4. Reply to text message (don't think this works now)

5. Plug phone into media port, play music, browse etc

6. Bluetooth connect to media e.g. play music over Bluetooth to car without plugging the phone into media port

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

I had to forget the uconnect device after the upgrade then simply redo the learning phase again and it works just fine.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

No problems with new iphone 6
No problems with iOS 8 on iphone 5, did not have to forget device and reconnect.
No problems streaming iOS 8 from ipad mini Bluetooth connected as a media device.

Have never been able to send text from an iOS device to uconnect (#4), but the voice to text feature works fine under iOS 8 with the uconnect microphone.

3 and 6 work fine with iOS 8 on an iPhone 4S. Via Mobile works fine as well. Haven't tested the other functions yet.

Yes, get an inexpensive Android Tracfone like the Samsung Galaxy Centra that I have. My Tracfone works perfectly with ALL of the features of Uconnect. I guess you need to decide which is more important to you. Impressing people that you have an iPhone with an Apple logo on the back or having a cell phone that works with ALL of the features of Uconnect.

Delete the device information on the head unit AND on your iPhone and start from scratch. That usually fixes the problem.

That is snotty and unhelpful to someone who had a legitimate question.
