    My 5 which has led a soft life, is loosing devices and then when trying to re-pair reports the device is not supported. This has happened repeatedly with my Garmin GPS (important as my only handsfree solution), my laptop, and my ION Tailgater Speaker.
    I have rebooted, the phone, restored the phone, and am considering a restore without restoring my back up and just starting over. The phone's name is "iPhone (8)" is that has a semantic issue?

    I recently upgraded from 5 to 6S+, and my 5 had major bluetooth issues from not being able to connect to devices to having it be a very spotty connection. Not sure what it was, but it was frustrating. I tried everything to try to fix it, with no avail. Upgraded and my 6S+ has no issue at all with anything I pair it to. Just my experience.
