Sony a6500 and iPhone just Don't Work?

Hi all


I've just bought the Sony a6500 and excited about it as a camera, but am really frustrated by it's inability to connect to an iPhone. I know Sony is not apple, so I can imagine them not being too interested in a non-android problem, but I really do expect the Send to Smartphone feature to work. 

I've written up exactly what goes wrong (wifi takes about 14 steps every time I want to send a single image, and bluetooth doesn't appear to pair at all) here -


I would appreciate any support or hope you folks can offer!


Thanks for your time!
