How to fix the Issue

1. The first thing you should do is turn off Bluetooth on your iPhone. Next also turn off WiFi as well if it’s on as it may cause interference. Now turn off the Bluetooth on the other device you want to connect to that’s giving issues.

2. Next you are going to force restart. Press the power button + volume down button and your phone will restart. You can let go when you see the Apple logo. Once again try turning on the device you want to connect to and it should detect it this time as normal.

3.It may also help if you tap on the i button and tell your phone to forget the device and then re-pair them both with Bluetooth. This helps sometimes with issues you may have.

4. Another option you can try is to go to settings, general, reset and reset network settings. You device will be rebooted and don’t worry this method only resets network related settings. After reboot try connecting to the Bluetooth device again.

5. If all else fails you may need a total reset. This will erase all your data, I suggest you do a backup. Go to settings,General, reset and then choose reset all settings.
