Here at iPhone Repair 4 Less in Lafayette we have seen an influx of Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS iPhone issues over the past few months. The main one we see in particular is the iPhone 6 with GPS and Bluetooth problems. Apple has not officially addressed the concerns of consumers about these issues and we assume it is because most of the iPhone 6 models experiencing GPS problems are well outside the 1 year warranty time frame.
Here are a few symptoms of the GPS – Bluetooth antenna flex cable being weak and not able to carry a signal like before.
Location services not properly recognizing where you are.
Apple Maps not able to give proper directions from current location.
Bluetooth Connectivity very weak and usually requires very close proximity to work at all.
Bluetooth does not work at all
