How to Connect to Wonderboom

Explains how to connect to Wonderboom from typical Bluetooth devices like Apple iOS and iPadOS devices. Similar directions work on Android as well.

So start with your speaker OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow along to connect to it.  In this demo, we show this on an iPad Air tablet.

How to Connect to Wonderboom: Step by Step

1. Visit the Home Screen on your Source Bluetooth Device

Firstly, press the Home button to get to the  Home   screen.  See our  Home  page as shown next.

2. Find the   Settings   App

We find ours on the second page of the  Home  screen. Most any mobile device these days has some sort of Settings app.  If yours does not, then follow the directions in its manual for connecting to a Bluetooth speaker.

4. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with How to Connect to Wonderboom

Then tap the  Bluetooth  item.

Our  Bluetooth Settings screen then comes up. Note that our Bluetooth is ON here. But the Wonderboom is currently OFF. So it does not show in either the  My Devices  or  Other Devices lists yet.  Why?  Because we’ve not yet connected to it from this device before.  Plus, the Wonderboom is not yet transmitting its connection info.
