Was no bueno with iOS 13 - works again after firmware update
Update: Finally, after more than 1 month oof the release of IOS 13, Korg issued a firmware update which re-enables bluetooth connectivity. I’m still not impressed, as this would have been preventable had Korg chosen to release the firmware update when IOS 13 was initially launched. Aren’t IOS Beta versions supposed to enable developers to get their shot together before an IOS update will be released?
Original Review: Can not connect to my KORG MicroKEY Air MIDI controller. The Korg ble app sees the device, but cannot connect to it. KORG should stop selling incompatible devices immediatedly.

Hi, we finally released new firmwares for our controllers to fix this issue. Please download and try again? https://www.korg.com/news/2019/112903/
Beware IOS 13
Everything worked great in IOS 12 and previous. Microkey Air won’t pair now in IOS 13 and there is nothing Korg can do about this .. it’s up to apple. The 2018 iPad Pro’s along with IOS 13 make a less than stellar combo for IOS musicians and producers. Sure wish Apple would give IOS 13 users the choice to go back to IOS 12.
Please update iOS soon
I believe the issue is that Korg MicroKey Air Keyboards are not discoverable by Bluetooth in the latest iOS 13.1.2.
They do appear in the app but they cannot connect becauase iOS 13.1.2 does not see the device.
As further evidence, my iPads and iPhone running iOS 13.1.2 have MicroKey Air devices which were paired with them while still running iOS 12. These devices still connect via the Bluetooth MIDI Connect app in iOS 13 as they had always done. But devices that were not previously paired under iOS 12 cannot be discovered by the iOS. Even though they appear in the app, they fail to connect.
Thiis is IMHO, an iOS problem. I think it is okay to upgrade to iOS 13 as long as you pair your device while still running iOS 12.
My hope is Apple will address this in the next update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
