The new Bios seems to correct the issue for me. What about you all?

Not for me. I have been having the same issues with my bluetooth. I'll connect a device and it will stay connected for about a minute or two before disconnecting. Sometimes bluetooth disappears all together on my computer. Other times it will stay on and require turning off and turning it back on for it to reconnect a device, only for it to repeat.
 
I tried the new bios from 9/4 and it's still having the same problem as before.

Welp, I updated to BIOS 1.06 and my replacement network m.2 key-E card is acting funky. I'm not taking my computer apart again. So far, the Z490 FTW has been an absolute cluster of a board to deal with. Make me think ASUS and Ryzen will be the way to go next time I upgrade.

Yes, the antennas are used for wifi and bluetooth. Read your manual. Page #8 shows that they are used for wifi and bluetooth.
Screw the antennas on. It's often harmful for a radio device when you don't have an antenna installed since the antenna is a load and the device can operate out of spec without a proper load. Without a load (antenna) the transmitted signal will get reflected back into the transmitter (wifi/bluetooth device, or whatever other application you consider), cause a voltage spike, and can fry/deteriorate the transmitter.
Always install all antennas, even if you aren't using the functionality, because the device can be damaged otherwise. It may not be damaged, but why risk it?

Well I'm not sure about your statement that the device will be faulty if I don't install the antenna if I have wasn't going to use the function. Anyways..  I did put them on just to see if I can get bluletooth working it does connect somewhat but then dies within a few mins.   
 
Resolved it by disabling the intel Bluetooth device in device manager plugged in my cheap USB TPlink UB400 works perfect.
