    It seems that compared to my 5S, my iPhone 6+ has a Bluetooth range that is twice as short. I'm having more interference than usual whenever I move around connected to my Bluetooth speaker. I reconnected and stood three feet away from the speaker, still with major interference. Anybody else running into Bluetooth connectivity issues with the new phones?

    Apart from that, discovering Bluetooth and wifi networks takes much longer than usual as well.

    Nope not here. I tested it last night and today in my 2014 Grand Cherokee and everything was smooth.

    I can't get my Jabra Solemate Mini to connect to my iPhone 6 despite multiple tries. Bluetooth seems to be a weakness in this phone. There are multiple threads with problems.

    Finally got my speaker to connect. Took about 10 tries switching on and off.

    Wouldn't it be half as long or wide? I don't think twice as short makes sense.

    I have a 2014 Stingray and the Bluetooth on the 6+ has worked for me so far. One thing I did notice though was that it seems to take a few seconds longer to register my phone as connected than my 5S when I start the car up.
