How to Connect UE Wonderboom with iPhone

This post shows how to connect a UE Wonderboom BT speaker to an iPhone and other iOS devices such as an iPod Touch and iPad. Start with your speaker shut OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow along to connect it with iPhone.  In this demo, we show how this connect works on an iPad Air mobile computer. But like procedures work for iPhones, and iPod Touch players as well.





How to Connect a UE Wonderboom Speaker to an iPhone

1. Visit the Home Screen on your iPhone

Press the Home button to get to the  Home   iPad page.  See our  Home  screen as shown next.

2. Find the   Settings   App

We found ours on the second page of the  Home  screen.

4. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with How to Connect a Wonderboom UE Speaker to an iPhone

Tap the  Bluetooth  item, as pointed at by the dark green arrow in the last screenshot above.

Our  Bluetooth Settings screen then appears as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is switched ON here. But since the speaker is currently OFF, it does not show in either the  My Devices  or  Other Devices lists on the tablet yet,  Why?  Because we have yet to connect it with this device for the first time.  Plus, the speaker is not yet transmitting its Bluetooth connection info. See this scenario, that appears as shown next.
