Update (January 16): A lot of iPhone 8 users are also reporting Bluetooth connectivity issues with their devices. Apple hasn’t said anything officially yet. Meanwhile, you can head here to read in detail what iPhone 8 users are saying.
Google and Samsung’s high-end phones aren’t the only ones catching bad press for Bluetooth issues. Turns out Apple’s latest flagship iPhone X is also heading to hit the charts. Sadly, not even two weeks past the launch, Bluetooth has already started troubling iPhone X users with connectivity issues.
Soon after users got their hands over the much awaited iPhone X, many of them started chiming about poor Bluetooth performance. Specifically, those affected have been reporting device’s connectivity issues with other Bluetooth devices like headphones/earpods, Apple watches, and car head-sets.
As can be seen above, users are routing to different help forums – including Apple Community and Reddit – and Twitter to bring out loud different use-cases where the phone doesn’t explore other devices, keeps connecting/pairing, and drops connection in-between.

I think the bluetooth on my iPhone X may be broken; Apple Watch frequently disconnects and handoff never works 😟

Guy on CNBC just now: “iPhone X is great, it just drops Bluetooth all the time and runs hot when you actually use it.”

The Bluetooth is flaky on iPhoneX. Keeps cutting out whilst connected to the car.

@Logitech Hey! Reviewing the new Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM speaker. Loving it and have everything set up via app. However, when watching a video (#twitchtv) or playing music and I use Alexa, it drops the Bluetooth connection. Using iPad Pro 10.5” and iPhone X.
