Status:Open Resolved:
Product:iOS Product Version:9.0.1
Classification: Reproducible:Always
Summary: If a paired Bluetooth audio device (e.g. a car audio system) is available but in a paused state, I am unable to play Music or Podcasts with the iPhone speaker as the audio output device. Sound plays for a fraction of a second through the speaker, then music immediately pauses itself.

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Pair iPhone with Bluetooth car audio
2. Turn the car audio "off" (i.e. announcing its presence but not accepting audio)
3. While in range of Bluetooth, select iPhone as the audio output device
4. In Music or Podcasts, press Play

Expected Results: Audio should play through iPhone speaker

Actual Results: Audio plays for a split second, then immediately pauses itself. ("iPhone" remains selected as the audio output.)

Version: 9.0.1

Notes: Workaround is to turn off Bluetooth altogether
