Before the Android 13 update I had had no problems connecting my A53 to Bluetooth devices. However, ever since the update, connecting the phone to my car or to my Samsung ear buds has become very hit and miss. If it won't connect, I have to restart the phone. I've tried all the troubleshooting suggestions I can find but nothing has worked so far. Has anyone else experienced this issues and does anyone have a solution?
I have the same problem. Use to seemlessly switch from my vehicle to earbuds and back before update. Now i have to turn blutooth off then on to sync to vehicle. Especially when I step away. I read the string and tried it all plus some. Shutdown most of samsung apps and cleared cache. Except i was not able to clear blutooth app. Getting very annoyed with this. Always something messing up with samsung these days.
I am also having this same issue. I tried rebooting my phone and my car's bluetooth system. but it still could not be solved.
Same here, we have tested it with two devices om multiple BT dev. No problem with the A53 when on Android 12 straight out of the box, after latest updates lots of BT devices are not found. We tested with and without Knox KME, Intune, hard resets. etc. No difference. This is an Android/Samsung bug in de latest update. We are usings the phones for our work en need this fixed ASAP.
Same troubles with the Samsung A53 5G since update to Android 13. Other mobile phones work flawlessly with my car's bluetooth connection (car is FORD Focus MK3 using "Sync2"). I have to restart the phone every day 1-2 times - then it works for a while. I also tried some settings from the developer options i.e. Bluetooth PBAP -Version 1.1 instead of 1.2 --> but does not help.
*NEED TO BE FIXED BY SAMSUNG ASAP!*
