iPhone users relieved: Great Bluetooth tip makes everything easier

iPhone users relieved: Great Bluetooth tip makes everything easier

If you use Bluetooth headphones and speakers with multiple devices, you certainly know the problem. You always have to switch between iPhone, Mac and Co. and then pair the Bluetooth devices again in a complicated way. With this tip, this is now easier and therefore much faster, at least on the iPhone.

It was about time, I had treated myself to new headphones last year. But not from Apple. Sorry, but I don't spend several hundred euros for a pair of circumaural AirPods. My choice therefore fell on the much cheaper alternative from Anker - you can currently get the Soundcore Life Q30 with a discount code for less than 70 euros (view at Amazon). In contrast to the predecessors, the active noise suppression of the Q30 is even good. Certainly there is still some catching up to do in a direct comparison with Bose, Sony and Apple, but in view of the price I can't complain.

Pairing iPhone with Bluetooth headphones easier: Here's how it's done

Positive: Like other modern Bluetooth headphones, the Soundcore Life Q30 connects to two devices at the same time . Stupid only if that's not enough for me. Currently I mainly use the headphones with the MacBook, the iPhone and the Fire TV from Amazon, because unfortunately my television itself does not have a Bluetooth connection. So at the end of the day, at least one device makes "too much". Means: I happily deregister the headphones and register them again on the desired device that is not currently connected – several times a day, if desired. The easiest way to do this is on a Mac, a mouse click in the menu bar is all it takes. With the iPhone, on the other hand, there are two options: Either via the control center, then a long tap on the Bluetooth symbol, then again on the Bluetooth symbol and then scroll through a long list of devices and connect the headphones. Alternatively, and a bit quicker, open Settings, go to Bluetooth, and then scroll through the same list, search, and type. Isn't there an easier way?

What I want: Connect the headphones I want to my iPhone with just a single tap. is something like that possible? Well, I'll explain it briefly.

Noice canceling in headphones - what is that anyway? We clarify:

Apple's shortcuts app , which is now included with every iPhone, is helpful for my project. I will use the app to create a "shortcut" that will be placed on the iPhone's home screen and thus connect the Bluetooth headphones with just a single tap of the finger, whenever the automatic connection fails due to the jungle of many devices. Important in advance: Before we get started, the desired headphones or speakers should already be actively connected to the iPhone .

We open the Shortcuts app , go to "All Shortcuts" and start a new script, just tap the plus icon in the right corner. Now we tap on the button "Add action" and decide on the item "Scripts" , now we select the area "Configure Bluetooth" - point 1 of the script is done with that. Now tap on the plus symbol again, in the sub-item "Program sequence" we tap on "Wait" . Now let's adjust the time, tap the seconds and make it a 5 . Explanation: You should give the script some time to scan the iPhone for nearby Bluetooth devices, otherwise it may end without a result. The last step in the script follows, we tap the plus symbol again. In the "Device" sub-item, choose "Specify playback target" . By default, the iPhone is stored, but we want to change this. We tap on it and switch to the desired Bluetooth headphones or speakers . The script or shortcut is now complete and can be saved. To do this, we tap on "Next" at the top right and assign a name and tap on "Done" .

We will then find the shortcut under "My Shortcuts". We can test it there. We briefly deactivate/activate Bluetooth, tap on the shortcut and et voil, as if by magic, our desired device is now explicitly connected to the iPhone.

Don't forget to store shortcuts on the home screen

But how do we get the shortcut on the home screen? Nothing easier than that: We tap on the circle with the 3 dots in the shortcut, now we are back in the script view . Now tap the menu circle again and select "To home screen" . Afterwards we can now define the app icon and description - for example, it is possible to use your own photos. With "Add" the shortcut ends up on the home screen.

Now, like any app, we can move it to the desired position on the home screen. From now on, all you have to do is tap on the app symbol and the Bluetooth headphones will be connected to the iPhone - wonderful! No more endless navigation through lists and settings. Does it all sound a little complicated to start with? Have courage, it's easier than you think in the end and will save your nerves in the future. Just try it.
