2.  Turn on the Bluetooth device. If the technology does not automatically turn on when the device does,you might need to look for a special Bluetooth setting on the device, which means it is possible that you will need to turn on the Bluetooth technology with a button or switch.

Last but not least, before you can pair your iPhone, the device needs to be powered on.

3.Put the device in pairing mode. For some Bluetooth devices, you will need to turn on the pairing mode. If you

do not see pairing mode as an option, then you will need to

look for the option to make the device “discoverable.”

Being “discoverable” means that other Bluetooth devices can pair to this device if they are in range of it. When devices search for nearby Bluetooth devices, yours will populate on their lists

If it is a device that has the Bluetooth technology turn on automatically when it powers on, you likely will not have to search for this setting.

 8. Search for your Bluetooth device in the list under “Devices.” Now that the Bluetooth is active on your iPhone, your iPhone will search for nearby Bluetooth devices. Locate your device on that list once it populates.

Hopefully your device will be the only Bluetooth device that appears on the list. If other devices appear, be sure to know the brand name and possibly the model number of your device, as it will likely be named in that way on the list.
