Just curious if anyone else is having issues with their Made for iPhone hearing aids since the upgrade to iOS 11.1? My Linx 3D hearing aids have been working flawlessly with my iPhone 7 Plus since I purchased these hearing aids a few months back. Last week I installed the iOS 11.1 security update before leaving on a business trip to Europe on Sunday night. When I landed at the airport in Amsterdam, the hearing aids wouldn’t connect to my iPhone. I figured the hearing aid batteries were low so I replaced them while I was waiting for my flight to Manchester. After restarting, the right hearing aid would connect but not the left one. Opening and closing the battery door multiple times generally resulted in one hearing aid connecting but not the other. Sometimes, neither hearing aid would connect. When I arrived in the UK (and for the 3 days that I was there) this problem persisted. Sometimes the hearing aids would connect just fine. Other times, one or none would connect. I tried quite a few things including forgetting and repairing the connection between the iPhone and the hearing aids multiple times. Nothing helped. At times, It almost felt like there was Bluetooth interference everywhere and the hearing aids were struggling to get a signal lock.
Last night I arrived back in Toronto and it seemed better. I noted that Apple had pushed out the iOS 11.1.1 update. I installed that and everything seems back to normal.
Anyone else? I think this is an Apple iOS issue but not sure.
