Apple iOS 7.1 update and uconnect

Since I updated my 5s to iOS. 7.1 I'm experiencing connectivity issues between my phone and unconnect. The phone pairing has dropped a few times for the first time since I've owned the jeep and it seems a little harder to stream music via Bluetooth now. Anyone else dealing with this?

Damn you apple....

Yup this why I always wait to install any IOS update. I currently have the 5s and don't want to experience any issue with Uconnect. Still, better than android :P 👍👌☝️

Doing ok here on 7.1. I've had to go to phone settings and make sure my 5s is connected on the display. I first noticed I couldn't get Pandora or Slacker to open via UConnect voice prompt. Probably have to wait for UConnect software to catch up now.

So far it has been a minor inconvenience.

Re: Apple iOS 7.1 update and uconnect

I've had no issues with my 5S on iOS 7.1 with my 730N. But I don't use the voice prompt stuff...

Re: Apple iOS 7.1 update and uconnect

I haven't noticed any difference on my iPhone 5 with the 7.1 update, yet. I only stream SiriusXM though. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the option to download Howard Stern shows on demand and play them via bluetooth (uConnect).

I've had other issues with the Sirius app on the iPhone including:

-audio playing on the phone after vehicle shut off
-audio stream starting over
continuous spooling (nothing happening) forcing a hard reset.

Re: Apple iOS 7.1 update and uconnect

I have a 4s with 7.1 and so far no issues. I do like how Apple maps cuts in to give a direction now (Im sure their is a technical term) like Google maps does but for some reason it seems less intrusive.
As always however, streaming music and using apple maps at the same time will most times completely lock up my radio and wont recover until I stop, shut the car off, (open the door) then wait five minutes for it to shut down. Did anyone ever figure out if RHR's have a force restart?

Re: Apple iOS 7.1 update and uconnect

It's always something with iphone and unconnect. I find it frustating that I can see and hear incoming text messages over my 8.4AN radio, but can't respond to them.

Also can't get playlists and album artwork over bluetooth.

Maybe if I get the radio tsb done it'll help. I'm skeptical though because my fist radio issue popped up the next time I was my jeep after the iOS update. I'd bet anything it's apple not uconnect.

You're one better than me- my texts don't show. All I can use my Bluetooth for are phone calls and streaming music.

Not sure if you tried this, but check to see if "Show Notifications" is turned on in iphone settings/bluetooth/uconnect.

I just looked at it and it wasn't turned on. I hope this is it. Thanks for the info! I'll try it next time I'm in the Jeep.
