STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

Pairing to iPhone*


Begin by making sure your iPhone and Bluetooth device are near each other. Bluetooth signals can only extend a few feet, so if the devices are too far apart they can't connect. They don't have to be right next to each other, but they should at least be in the same room, if not closer.

Next, put the Bluetooth device you want to pair with the iPhone in discoverable mode. This allows the iPhone to see the device and connect to it. Making a device discoverable requires different steps on different devices. For some it's as easy as turning them on, others require more work. Check the manual for the device you want to pair for instructions.

Locate the Settings app on your iPhone homescreen. Tap it.

Tap General, then Bluetooth.

Move the Bluetooth slider to "On." When you do this, a list of all the discoverable Bluetooth devices will appear.

If the device you want to pair with is listed, tap it. If not, consult the device's instructions to ensure it's in discoverable mode.

To pair some Bluetooth devices with the iPhone, you need to enter a passcode. If the device you're trying to pair is one of those, the passcode screen will appear. Consult the device's manual for the passcode and enter it.

And, with that, you're completed the iPhone Bluetooth pairing process and are ready to use the device.
