Listening to music on your iPhone is a great way to pass the time, but it’s even better when you can do it with superior audio quality. By connecting JBL speakers to your iPhone, you can get the most out of your music listening experience. In this article, we will show you how to connect JBL speakers to the iPhone in a few easy steps. Let’s get started!
You can follow the steps given below to connect any model of JBL speakers to your iPhone.
Steps to connect any of the JBL speakers to an iPhone
Step – 1 – Enable Pairing Mode on your JBL Speaker
To pair your JBL Bluetooth speaker with a phone, you’ll need to turn it on and switch into Bluetooth pairing mode. When you power on the JBL speaker, a LED light (mostly white) will appear on the power icon immediately followed by the trademark audio cue.
If your JBL Speaker was connected to some source device (smartphone, tablet, laptop) recently, it will automatically get connected to that device the moment Bluetooth is turned on.
If the speaker is new and has not been previously linked to any of your devices, you must first turn on the Bluetooth pairing mode by pressing the Bluetooth button for around 3 seconds. When certain JBL speakers are switched on, they go into Bluetooth pairing mode. The blinking blue LED light on the JBL Bluetooth speaker indicates the pairing mode.
Step – 2- Enable Bluetooth on your iPhone
Now, it is time to enable Bluetooth on your iPhone. For that, open the Settings app on your iPhone and tap on the Bluetooth Settings option. You can toggle on Bluetooth from here.
Now, go to the “Other Devices” section and your iPhone will scan for nearby Bluetooth devices. So, your JBL Speaker’s name along with its model number will appear here. Tap on the name of your JBL Speaker and wait for a few seconds.
Step – 3 – Connect both devices and test the audio
Once you tap on your speaker’s name on your iPhone, it will get connected to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Now that both the devices are connected, you can play any media file (song or video) on your iPhone and test if the audio is coming out from the JBL Speaker or not.
If the pairing fails, there might be some issue with your JBL Speaker. You can try and reset your JBL Speaker to resolve the issue. The steps for connecting a JBL speaker to an iPhone are almost the same for all models of JBL Bluetooth speakers.
FAQs About Connecting JBL Speakers To iPhone
Why can’t I see my JBL speaker in the list of devices on my iPhone?
Your JBL Bluetooth speaker won’t appear in the list of available Bluetooth devices on your iPhone because the pairing mode is not active on your JBL speaker. You will need to make sure that the Blue LED light is blinking which is an indicator of “pairing mode enabled”.
If you cannot activate the pairing mode even after manually pressing the Bluetooth button on your JBL Speakers for 3 or more seconds, you might need to reset your JBL Speakers to solve this issue. But, before that, try turning off the Bluetooth on your iPhone and then turning it back on.
Can I pair multiple JBL speakers together with the same iPhone?
Yes, JBL Speakers allow you to connect multiple JBL Speakers to a source ( in this case iPhone) at the same time. If your JBL speaker has a “JBL Connect” feature, then you can connect a maximum of two JBL Speakers at a time to your iPhone to boost the audio quality and volume.
If you have newer models of JBL Speakers with the “JBL Connect+” or “PartyBoost” feature, you can connect more than 100 JBL speakers together.
Can I use a JBL speaker with an Android phone?
Yes, you can use a JBL Bluetooth speaker with any Android phone. The process of connecting a JBL Bluetooth speaker to an Android phone is the same as the one for iPhone. You will just need to make sure that your Android phone has Bluetooth enabled and is discoverable from other devices.
What should I do if the audio is not coming out of my JBL speaker?
If the audio is not coming out of your JBL Bluetooth speaker, then there might be some issue with the connection between both devices. Try to reset your JBL Speaker and see if that fixes the issue. If it still doesn’t work, then you might need to get in touch with customer service for more help.
