    Just wondered if you knew anything about the bug which means l dont get any notification sounds on my iPhone 6s plus running IOS 9.1 if l have bluetooth turned on. I need it on as l have an apple watch. If l have bluetooth off all sounds come thru on my iphone. If i turn it on l dont get any sounds. Any ideas?

    Welcome to iMore! I always keep Bluetooth on and haven't experienced this issue. Is there possibly another device hogging your phone's audio? You can check under Settings > Bluetooth to see what devices are currently connected to your iPhone. If you don't see anything then try performing a soft reset. To perform a soft reset, hold both the power button and home button down until you see the Apple boot logo. If that doesn't work then restoring your device might be in order.

    I would reset settings to factory before trying anything else , also do you have the mute switch turned on by chance ?

    Sounds like something is taking the phone's audio, even if its not playing it audibly. I have the same issue when I am in my car. My iPhone connects to my car's bluetooth, and I have to have my radio switched to bluetooth in order to hear the sound. If I don't have the radio on bluetooth, I don't hear the audio at all but the phone continues to send audio that way.

    I have an Apple watch so need bluetooth on. It gets sounds etc but not the phone. Minute l turn bluetooth off on my iPhone then l get all sounds. My mother also has an iPhone 6 Plus. She was complaining of the same thing today, no sounds. She has bluetooth on so when she goes to her car it connects. Its not connected to anything at the moment but just having bluetooth "toggle" on blocks sounds. Turn the toggle off and hey presto sounds come thru...!!
    Have seen that lots of people have mentioned the issue. Seems to be an issues sine ios 9.xxx. Hope that it will be fixed soon!.
    Thanks for all the replies.
    Cheers

    same problem here while connected to truck bluetooth no notifications from phone, truck shows texts fortunately. But all phone sounds attempt through bluetooth and only the text will play through truck. Way to toggle other notifications to not use bluetooth?

    ya sounds and vibrate go to the watch when the phone is locked and screen is off .. thats the way it was designed. try taking you watch off your wrist dont disconnect bluetooth or anything the watch should lock then the phone itself should make sounds and not the watch.
