How To Connect Wireless Bluetooth Headphones To Iphone Or Ipad
Bluetooth headphones are a cool and versatile thing. And if you went to this page, then you most likely already have wireless headphones, and you appreciated how easy it is to use them. I somehow put off buying Bluetooth headphones, but still decided to purchase them to listen to music from all over the iPhone. And now I use them also with the iPad, laptop, and even with the TV # 128578;
I do not know how relevant and useful this article will be, but I decided to tell in detail and show how to connect Bluetooth headphones to the iPhone, or to the iPad. Simply put, to iOS devices. Everything is very simple and clear there. But in some cases problems may arise. I hope that my instructions will help you quickly connect your headphones to your phone or tablet and enjoy the music. By the way, if you have headphones with a microphone, then you can also answer calls from your iPhone through them. It is very convenient.
I have JBL E45BT headphones and they have buttons with which you can increase or decrease the volume, switch tracks (by pressing and holding the volume buttons), as well as answer calls and end them. And another nice little thing that was waiting for me after connecting the headphones to the iPhone was the display of the charge level of the headphones in widgets on the iPhone. I don’t know if this function works with all the headphones, but the thing is convenient.
And so, we have an iPhone or iPad and Bluetooth headphones, and we need to connect them. I have it JBL E45BT, iPhone 6 and iPad mini. You may have other devices, the connection order will not practically differ even on the iPhone 8 # 128578;
Connect Bluetooth headphones to iPhone and iPad
First you need to turn on our headphones and put them into connection mode with a new device. Headphones are available for search. Turn on the power and see if the blue indicator is blinking. It should blink exactly. If not, you need to press a separate button (with the Bluetooth icon), or press and hold the headset power button.
Important: the indicator should blink blue.
Then we do this:
- We take our iPhone or iPad and go to the settings.
- Go to the “Bluetooth” section.
- Turn on Bluetooth and in the list of detected devices, select your Bluetooth headphones.
- We see the status “Connected” near the headphones, and an icon near the battery level.
All connected. Screenshot for clarity.
If you click on the “i” icon opposite the headphones, you can disconnect from them, or delete “Forget this device” altogether.
But this same widget “Battery”, which I automatically appears after connecting the headphones, and displays their battery level.
In the future, just turn on the power of the headphones and Bluetooth on your iOS device, and everything will connect automatically.
What to do if iPhone does not see Bluetooth headphones?
Unfortunately, this sometimes happens. I’m unlikely to recommend anything new and 100% working, but I’ll write some recommendations all the same.
- First of all, make sure your headphones are turned on and available for searching and connecting to other devices. On different headphones, this is done in different ways, but the Bluetooth indicator should blink blue. Do not burn, namely blink. This mode is most often activated by a separate button on the headphones themselves, or by holding the power button.
- Turn off Bluetooth on the iPhone and turn it on again. Perhaps after this, the headphones appear in the list of available for connection.
- Place the headphones next to your phone or tablet.
- If nothing helps, then you need to look for the culprit. To do this, you need to connect some other Bluetooth device to your iPhone, or connect the headphones to another phone, tablet, laptop, etc.
- You can also try rebooting your mobile device.
