About one month ago we reported on a serious pairing issue iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users were having with multiple Android Wear devices. In the month since, it seems that the issue has been resolved.

Originally, Google confirmed that the ASUS ZenWatch 2, Moto 360 2nd Gen, Moto 360 Sport, TAG Huer Connected, and Fossil Q Founder devices were all not pairing with the iPhone 7 family.

Google has contacted us today to confirm that this issue has been resolved in iOS 10.1. Google worked with Apple to resolve the issue, although we still don’t know the specific cause. Odds are it had something to do with Bluetooth connectivity issues reported on most 3rd party devices in previous versions of iOS 10.

Regardless, iOS 10.1 is available now for all compatible devices. The update also includes several bug fixes across the board including enhancements to Bluetooth connectivity with 3rd-party devices — likely what fixed connection with Android Wear devices.
