    Just received the email below from a company called iZettle. They produce card readers for iOS just like "PayPal Here".

    It would appear they are experiencing Bluetooth problems in iOS 9 already.

    Bluetooth streaming already performs poorly in my car after the introduction of iOS 8.

    Here's the email...

    On September 16th, Apple will release a new version of iPhone and iPad software, called iOS 9.0. We've tested it, and there's a problem in it. You should not update to iOS 9.0.

    The problem causes Bluetooth to switch off when you try to pair the Card Reader Pro or Pro Contactless. The reader can't pair, and therefore you can't take card payments.

    Apple have acknowledged the problem, and it will be fixed in an update to iOS 9.0. We'll get in touch again when it's available. iOS updates don't install automatically, only when you approve them.

    If you have any questions, please take a look at our detailed article on our Support Pages, What to do about the Bluetooth problem in iOS 9.0.

    Thanks,

    – The iZettle team

    FWIW, I've been using ios 9 (on Iphone 6) since the public beta came out and have had no issues with bluetooth in my car, on wireless headphones, or in communicating with an iGrill remote thermometer.

    I had some problems with the bluetooth connection with my car in iOS 9.0 beta - it was connected, but when making a call, my car claimed that the call was in the 'private mode' and went through my phone, while my iPhone claimed that it went through car's speakers. Fortunately, with beta of iOS 9.1 it works fine again (I did not try iOS9 GM).

    What's wrong with the iGrill? It resulted in some delicious pulled pork!

    There may be trouble ahead....

    2nd email received from a different company...

    Important information about your PayPal Here Card Reader

    Dear User,

    Apple recently announced its latest operating system for iPhones and iPads, iOS 9. Due to a Bluetooth pairing issue in iOS 9, PayPal Here users may experience problems when trying to connect their card reader with an iPhone or iPad that is running on iOS 9.

    If you’re planning to or have already upgraded to iOS 9, we recommend that you follow the steps outlined here if you’re experiencing difficulties connecting your card reader. Apple has identified the cause of the issue and will correct it in an upcoming release. We will notify our PayPal Here customers when the iOS 9 issue has been resolved.

    PayPal Here customers who are using Android devices [or earlier versions of iOS] are not affected by this issue.

    If you have questions or concerns or would like to discuss your account, our Customer Support team is ready to help. Please call us at 020 80806500.

    Kind regards,

    The PayPal Team

    Seems like it's something specific to these card readers... some sort of security protocol??

    I really hope that iOS 9 would fix my bluetooth problem that has been ongoing since iOS 8: Random disconnection, and even plays music when I am on Facetime call...
