My Bluetooth LE devices aren’t reconnecting as expected after installing the Creators Update

I recently installed the Windows 10 Creators Update and now my Bluetooth LE devices aren’t reconnecting to my PC as expected. They take much longer to reconnect than before the update. Any suggestions?

Hi Harold,

Try running the Bluetooth troubleshooter first to see if that helps. You can find it here in Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot under Find and fix other problems.

If that doesn’t help, close Settings and give your device some time to reconnect. It may take longer than usual.

We are aware that some users with Broadcom radios may have experienced Bluetooth LE device connection issues (while Settings is open) after upgrading to Windows 10 Creators Update. We have resolved the issue in a recent Windows update, and devices with Broadcom radios will once again be offered the Creators Update.  If you are still experiencing this issue, please make sure you've installed the latest Windows updates.
