I have an iPad 8th generation. I gave Resound Enzo power hearing aids which normally enable me to stream audio directly from my iPad via bluetooth. I also have an iPhone 8+ where I likewise use bluetooth – in this case mainly for audio conversations. I run 14.3 on the ipad.
My problem is with streaming Netflix (etc) from iPad to hearing aids. Phone bluetooth is ok. When I was running iPad ios13 everything was fine. Since I’ve upgraded to ipad ios14 my bluetooth cuts out every few minutes or so and just ends. I have to restart bluetooth and/or re-pair the hearing aids. So far I have tried:
turning off bluetooth on phone while watching Netflix on ipad to avoid any conflict.
turning off phone completely while streaming on iPad
trying ipad ios 14, 14.1, 14.2, 14.3
‘forgetting’ the hearing aids and re-pairing the hearing aids with ipad
clearing network settings
doing reset of ipad (home and off keys depressed at same time)
Nothing works. I’ll be watching and Netflix and the screen will freeze as my bluetooth breaks. Then I have to either turn bluetooth on/off or re-pair the hearing aids and I can usually get it to work again – for about 5 minutes.
First question: is there anything else I should try?
Second question: how do I drop back to ipad ios13 if anyone has tried this? I went to https://ipsw.me and the only downloadable images available are at the 14.x level.
I’m clearly at the end of my rope and would appreciate any guidance on the above two question.
Thanks very much, DB
