IPhone uses BTLE. Currently the ts does not have that. And it will not until the ts is updated to android 4.3 or higher. That may or may not happen

as of right now, BT teethering does not work on any ts with any phone. Omate is suppose to release a firmware update next week to solve the BT issue

This is not true. My Truesmart can tether to phones, it is just very unstable; you should however be able to pair to a phone. Now whether an iPhone 5 supports tethering to the Truesmart is different.

It doesn't work, the best you can do is tether using iphone as a wifi hotspot and set the output on MyWi to about 30%. Will kill the iphone in about 8 hours though.

I should have explained what I meant. Yes it can teether using BT. But the BT tethering to your phone is unstable and after 2-10 mins I loses connection. This is a firmware issue. Omate is releasing a firmware update in a week or so to solve this issue. They are updating OUI 2 to OUI 2.1. This will add a sports mode as well as a companion mode to your ts

The update still won't work with the iphone, at least not until the ts software is upgraded to android 4.3. Or higher

Your right,until its updated to at least 4.3 you r Sol. On top of that omate is focusing on there next ts. Ts 2. So I wwould expect the same support we have now in the future for the ts 1. When I asked about support I was told not to bother with the ts 1 because all resource as are being put on the development of there next ts. This comes as no surprise
