Bluetooth is completely gone with the update from Build 1803 to 1903. I read something about driver incompatibilie, but nothing is consistent and there are no apparent fixes.

Is this a know issue? Does anyone else has this problem?

@itsage or @eightarmedpet?

I had problems so numerous I could barely distill them into a list. 
I can’t remember if Bluetooth was an issue, I may have time in a few weeks to try some new builds and will let you know. 
I think my core issue was tb3 detection causing bsod and then corrupting my instal to the point I needed to nuke. 
If it wasn’t for a couple of games I’d stick with macOS.

@oliverb I have experienced poor bluetooth performance on 1903. Bluetooth is present however, and my wireless keyboard/trackpad seem to function fine in most cases. I have encountered problems mostly with my PS4 controller.

@oliverb, i've had the same issue. Bluetooth is gone after plugging in the Core X. There's a solution, if you connect your magic mouse (only works with magic mouse) before plugging in the Core X bluetooth's gonna work afterwards, too. Tried with a Logitech MX Anywhere, doesn't work. Only the apple magic mouse.

The explanation? Don't have any but it works!

I always have bluetooth issue on bootcamp especially the audio quality from the airpods. The audio quality are very bad, stuttering everytime if I use the xbox one controller at the same time. Just found the fix recently by plugging a bluetooth dongle to the egpu enclosure for my xbox controller.

Just updated my 1903.295 to 1903.720 and I think it is better for egpu since I can coldboot or hotboot consistently.
