Pair with a third-party Bluetooth headset or car kit

Make the accessory “discoverable” or set it up to “search” for other Bluetooth devices. (Consult the instructions to do this.)

  1. Go to your iPhone’s Home screen and select Settings >General >Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth on. Your iPhone will search for nearby Bluetooth devices and list any that it finds, including your headset or car kit. (Note: If it’s not listed, go back to the previous step and be sure you made it discoverable.)
  2. Tap on the name of your headset or car kit in the list and you will be asked to enter a passkey. You get this from the instructions that came with the accessory.
