    Can anyone share if they have any Bluetooth connectivity problem with your new iPhone 7 plus? I got my new phone since Saturday and found when I listen to music, my Bluetooth headphone dropped off quite a bit. It didn't say my conncection is dropped.

    Mine's skipping a bit too.

    My Verizon and GPS connections are also dropping from time to time. I'm guessing (or hoping) there will be some software updates in the very near future.

    I thought I was the only one, my Bluetooth has dropped a ton especially when working out. These are issues I never had with the 6s and I'm hoping it's only a software issue. I really love the phone otherwise. It sucks since Bluetooth audio is supposed to be Apple's new incentive.

    I've been having trouble with my car audio. 7+ running 10.0.1. The car controls are laggy or don't respond at all, displayed track info changes to just "streaming audio," and sometimes songs skip to the next track after playing only part of the song. Just came from a 6s+ that was working fine. I was thinking of getting wireless headphones but maybe I'll wait until it's a little less buggy.

    I wonder if it's not software and if it's hardware. We should report it to Apple just not sure how. I'm just gonna deal with it sadly.

    Some days it's not too bad today it is dropping as if this was the first iteration of Bluetooth. Seems like only plus units too.

    This has been happening to me as well. Seems to go away if I move the phone closer to the radio.

    Also having constant bluetooth connection issues in my car (Ford Sync 2 - latest update) with my new iPhone 7+. The phone hiccups then drops out completely. Tried erasing the connection in the car, re-pairing, erasing network settings, but nothing has worked. Never had problems with my iPhone 6. Problem existed on 10.0.1 and persists in the 10.1 beta.

    Interestingly, I don't seem to have any problems with a bluetooth headset.

    So I was about to go in to replace but figured I'd go back to the basics and do a DFU restore before I went in and start the phone fresh sans restore back up. So far my phone has worked Bluetooth headphones no skips for a few hrs use and car Bluetooth no problems. I will keep testing, but I feel like my back up has a bug that became exacerbated upon restore on the 7 plus.

    Having the same issue as well with my pair of Bower&Wilkins P5 headphones and my 7+. Flaky bluetooth at times with my phone next to me on my desk. I installed 10.1 beta yesterday with no improvement. Good to know others are having similar problems.

    Got too ambitious, it's like my Bluetooth knows I'm at the gym and hates me for it. Unusable at the gym, I wonder if it's hardware and we have a defective batch

    So far seems same old, same old, since it's not very widespread I am trying to figure out whats going on. Does anyone wear and Apple watch also? Maybe interference?

    My new 7 Plus drops calls every couple of minutes... will reconnect on its own in 15 or 20 seconds. Makes it exceedingly difficult to conduct business in the car.
    Driving a Ford with Synch. Ford tried a system software update and even replaced the cars modem but no change.
    A quick internet search indicates this is an issue for more than just me.
    Probably going to need to revert back to my 6 Plus just to save my sanity as the 6 worked flawlessly for several years...
