    I have to do a manual connect, but it seems to work. It is not seamless to say the least.

    I'm in the same boat. I can connect to my Android tablet but not my iphone.
    I remember it was hard to get the Oly E-P5 setup on the iphone first as well.
    For the time being I am just using my tablet.

    On my GX80 and iPhone 6 it's working without hassle. I just have to disconnect from my home wi-fi, turn on GX80 wi-fi and choose my saved iPhone connection and lastly open the panasonic image app.

    The first time I used manual connection, though.

    I don't remember the process entirely, but it wasn't effortless the first time I connected the two. I can look into how I did it when I get home.

    When I tried resetting and doing it again it was completely hassle free:

    Camera - Wi-Fi on -> New connection -> Send images stored in the camera -> Smartphone -> Direct -> Manual Connection
    Phone - Connect to the network displayed in the camera
    Camera tells me to launch Image App
    Phone - Launch Image app, everything works

    did you add geotags to images stored in the camera already?

    or does that procedure transfer jpgs to the smartphone (which I do NOT want)?

    I haven't tried that, but here's a movie that explains the process on the GH3:

    I was able to connect my iphone 6s via QR code without issue on first try.

    once you got a blue square and moved the phone to set the QR code inside the blue square, what did you do then??
