Nice to meet you, *****!
What devices are you trying to connect?

Customer Replay

my iPhone to my iPad and vice versa. In the past I could also connect iPhone to Sonos bar. Now no connections between devices


Are you trying to connect them via Airplay?

Got you
Please, follow the instructions below:

  1. On your iPhone, go to the Settings menu. Tap on General > Network
  2. On the Network, tab go to Cellular > Personal Hotspot
  3. Go back to the General screen and click on ‘Bluetooth’.
  4. On your iPad, go to Settings and turn on Bluetooth.
  5. Give the iPad a few minutes to scan for the iPhone. Make sure the six-digit number on both devices is
    the same.
  6. Lastly, go ahead to pair the devices and sync data.
    Let me know when you're done, *****.
