Bose® MIE2i mobile headset worked great with my iPod Touch since iOS7.. for last one month. After I upgraded to iOS8, it stopped working (Volume control).

But I tested with my iMac, it still works as expected. It doesn't make sense to me. A software upgrade impacts this? I have raised a complaint to bose as well. Just curious, it took 9.3K indian rupees for me!

Update: Looks like am not the only one impacted! - Apple Community

  • Dose it show up in your Sound preferences? Or is it only the volume control not working but the speakers are? – Ruskes Sep 18 '14 at 18:50
  • Just the volume control. The speakers are perfect. – Maheswaran Ravisankar Sep 18 '14 at 18:53

  • Yes, I know that, the question is if the iOS 8 recognizes it. – Ruskes Sep 18 '14 at 19:14

So far we concluded it is a iOS- 8 issue.

My online chat with Bose support came with same result, it is not a Bose problem.

It is not officially confirmed by Apple, but sure they are working on a fix already.
