Hearing Aids Not Connecting To iPhone
Hearing devices were working flawlessly before the iOS 15.6 update but they got disconnected right after? This problem has been reported by Rick:
“After updating to 15.6 my hearing aids ( iPhone compatible) won’t pair with iPhone 12 or iPad Pro.”
We couldn’t replicate it, but I’ve found a similar report on Apple’s discussion forums and other similar websites.
Apparently the hearing aids disconnecting issue isn’t new to iOS 15.6. It’s been reported after iOS 15.4 update and even earlier for iOS 15.0.1.
More, it’s affecting various brands like Signia, Oticon, Phonak, Maihear and more.
