    Hi,

    Was curious if anybody has seen this before all of a sudden my GPS stopped working on my iPhone 6 and so has the bluetooth. The bluetooth when i connect to any device just skips the only way to explain it is sounds like a record skipping when playing a song. the phone otherwise function 100% hasn't been abused. Is it possible that a complete refresh may fix the problem.

    Since you specifically mention Bluetooth and GPS, I'm going to assume you're likely connecting this to a car.

    Have you tested other Bluetooth capable devices to verify the issue is only with the iPhone?

    Generally speaking with Apple products it's recommended to restore the phone as new and then see if you can replicate the issue, so yes to answer your question a complete refresh may help.

    Fair enough. Then yes try a restore as new (take a full backup first so you don't lose anything) to determine if it's hardware or software related.
