Do Not Update Your iPhone! (bluetooth issue with fiesta)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First time in this forum :yahoo: So here's the issue:

Ever since updating to IOS11 on my iPhone, the bluetooth between the phone and my fiesta's stereo is absolutely horrendous!  It pops and crackles like a vinyl record, its like having a ***** bowl of Rice Crispies in the back! Both with music and phonecalls. It's driving me up the wall, so I called Apple (who blame Ford,), called Ford (who blames Apple).  It's the same for my friend who owns a similar year Fiesta and a new iPhone. So my advice is do not update your phone, or do not buy a '10 model fiesta.

I had this exact same problem and contacted Apple who gave me useless  advice about resetting network settings blah blah blah.

In the end I reverted to the previous version of iOS (still 11.x.x) through iTunes and now it is working again without problem.

Maybe try that.

I have an elderly dumb phone, so its a moot point for me.

More relevant, hands free phones reduces your reactions to those of a drink driver.  That and the crackles is all the incentive you need.
