    When you go to Settings > Bluetooth, what does it say? Does it say Unable To Discover?

    What device are you trying to pair to your iPhone 6S?

    I had to laugh at this - "Problem with Bluetooth, doesn't work. Anyone else?"

    Multiple bluetooth devices discoverable but iPhone discovers none. It is constantly searching but nothing turns up under devices. Tried pairing from Macbook and that fails. The 6 Plus I am going to return no issues.

    If you are not willing to try a complete restore on your phone, I would call Apple and see what they have to say.

    I've tried a hard reset but not a complete restore. I've tried every bluetooth device and google results have yielded little. Restore it is.

    In order to complete a full restore, you must plug your phone into your computer, open iTunes, and restore from there.

    Could try to reset network settings before trying the restore.

    Ah yeah thanks. Just posting hoping a power user had a similar issue and an easier fix. Or if this is a known issue that requires me to take it to Apple.

    I'm not necessarily a power user, but i am more than sure there is no other way to fix this. Sorry :/

    i did, in fact, think of this, but after some poking around- the reset only changes wifi and cellular aspects of the iPhones wireless capabilities.

    Pretty sure it clears any bluetooth devices as well, figured worth a shot before the whole restore.

    Long restore underway.
    Full restore did not work. Starting from new did not work.

    I had trouble with my 6S+ syncing with my cars bluetooth. I had to restore the Phone and also reset the bluetooth system in the car before they successfully paired. Just restoring the phone was not enough. Now, they work well.
