Reset network and Bluetooth settings

Reset the network and Bluetooth settings. To do that, head to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network settings. Following the steps will remove all Bluetooth pairing of all phones or devices. It will also erase the setting and configuration made on your iOS device. After this step is completed, you will have to re-add and re-pair any Bluetooth hardware with your iOS device. If you do not want to follow other steps, just follow this one first. Then pair everything from the scratch again.

But one thing remember that it will also trash the saved wifi password and custom networking configuration, so you will need to join wifi routers again.

Update the iOS

This step is quite easy, head to Settings -> General -> Software Update and ensure that any iOS updates that are waiting have been installed. The updates often include bug fixes, so you should install them always.

If all the above steps fail to solve iOS 7 Bluetooth problems, then

  • Check that the Bluetooth device’s battery is charged and has enough power source
  • Turn the Bluetooth device off and then on again
  • Confirm that the devices are not out of range (Not more than 10 feet)
  • Turn your iPhone, iPod or iPad off and On.

You can also check by connecting the device to your Mac and use OS X tools in order to check the connection strength. If it is seen that the Bluetooth device cannot connect to iOS mobile device but connects to Mac easily, then you can try syncing a wireless keyboard to your iOS mobile device to make sure that official Apple hardware works easily.

Along with all the above things, double check both the iOS device and Bluetooth device and see if they can connect to other devices. If it is found that one works while another does not, then it could be a hardware issue on either side.
