Bluetooth speakers and tunes can be compared to fish and chips or Netflix and chilling. These often affordable sonic boxes can transform any phone into a sound system small and portable enough to be taken on your next adventure.
Wireless technology means that there are no cables to trip on. Friends can also connect wirelessly with the device, giving them a wider selection of tunes. Many models can be used outdoors, making them great for swimming or at the pool.
JBL is a brand that you need to be aware of. JBL has a reputation for making the most high-quality Bluetooth speakers. Here’s a look at the JBL speaker lineup, including their differences and the features they offer. Finally, we will decide which JBL speaker is right for you. We went to great lengths in finding the best deals, and the lowest prices.
JBL models are generally more advanced than their less expensive siblings. The general rule is that the larger the battery, the better the experience. It will give you longer recharge times and allow you to juice up your phone from the speaker.
JBL speakers are compatible with smart voice assistants like Siri and Google Assistant. This means you can ask your speaker for directions, or even recipe suggestions. JBL Connect+ can be found on some older models. This wireless technology allows you to connect up to 100 JBL Connect+ speakers wirelessly, for incredible multi-room sound.
PartyBoost is a feature found on the newer models that JBL believes outperforms the old model. Modern models are fully waterproof, not just splashproof. A few models also have a built-in mic for hands-free calling.
Here’s the detail about “how to connect JBL speakers to iPhone?”. However, it is not difficult to connect with JBL speakers. We are here to help you in the way of this article.
How to Connect JBL Speaker to iPhone?
This illustration will be performed with a JBL Flip 4 Once you have your JBL speaker turned off (power is dark), go through this process to connect it to your iPhone. For this demonstration, we’ll be using an iPad air tablet as the iPad is not compatible with our iPhone. The setup pages look almost the same. The routine is also virtually identical.
1. Open the Home Screen of your iPhone
You can access the iPhone’s Home screen by pressing the Home button.
2. Go to the Settings app
Ours appeared on the second screen of the iOS home screen as shown next.
The Settings app is highlighted on the iPhone’s Home screen.
3. Open the Settings app
Click on the Settings icon.
As shown in the next step, the iPhone displays its first page of settings.
4. Go To The Bluetooth Settings Page To Connect Your JBL Speaker To iPhone
The Bluetooth settings screen looks like the following. Here, Bluetooth is enabled. However, as a speaker is currently turned off, it does not appear in the list of devices. Since this speaker and this iOS device have never been paired before, we don’t see it. You can see this in the following list of previously paired Bluetooth devices.
Bluetooth devices previously paired with an iPhone are listed here. We have not yet connected the JBL speaker.
5. Activate Your JBL speaker
The Power button on most JBL speakers is quickly pressed to turn them on. As illustrated in the next image, it is highlighted in green for our example.
The -Power- button on a JBL speaker is circled when it is turned off.
Power is then applied to the speaker.
Because the iPhone doesn’t know about this speaker, it won’t automatically connect. As shown next, the light that appears in the power switch indicates this non-paired state by glowing solid white.

6. Activate The Pairing Mode On Your JBL Bluetooth Speaker
Place the JBL speaker in Bluetooth discovery mode (also known as pairing mode) now to see the speaker on your iPhone. In order to do so, press and release the Bluetooth button, as shown in the picture below.

A repeating single guitar note is heard when you press the button for Bluetooth discovery mode. A solid white glow is replaced by a flashing blue glow on the power button. Check this out.
Bluetooth is in discovery mode when the speaker is connected. With the yellow arrow, the Power button is flashing blue.
7. Find your JBL Flip 4 On Your iPhone And Follow The Instructions
Take a look at the screenshot below. The purple arrow indicates where we found our speaker.

8. Next, Connect With Your JBL Speaker
From the list of Bluetooth devices, tap the listed speaker under Other Devices.
Then you connect your iPhone to the speaker (“Tom’s Flip 4” in this case). A screen similar to this appears on the iPhone’s Bluetooth Settings screen.
On iPad Air, the speaker is highlighted and connected like on the iPhone Bluetooth Settings screen.
9. Connecting JBL Speaker to iPhone Is Now Complete
The JBL wireless speaker and iPhone have now been paired successfully. Playing music is now possible. With some models, such as the Flip 4, you can also make and receive phone calls.
Which is better, JBL Flip 6 or Flip 5?
First, let’s look at JBL’s most popular wireless speakers. JBL announced the Flip 6 at the start of September, an upgrade on the Flip 5 both inside and out.
It has the same racetrack-shaped driver as the Flip 5, but with a separate tweeter and dual passive radiators. With these, tunes should sound richer and have greater power. (We say ‘should’ since we haven’t tested the Flip 6 yet. However, considering its predecessor scored five stars in our JBL Flip 5 review, we anticipate a great experience.)
It is now rated IP67, whereas the Flip 5 was IPX7. This means it’s waterproof (can survive submersion to up to 1 meter for 30 minutes) and completely dust-tight.
Bluetooth version 4.2 was upgraded to 5.1 by Flip 5’s engineers. It still has the PartyBoost feature, which allows wireless pairing with other JBL speakers, including the Flip 5 and gives you a louder sound.
The new colorways are also included. The Flip 6 can be ordered in Dusty Pink or GreyStone, River Teal, and Fiesta Red.
It goes on sale in November, priced at PS129.99 / $129.95 (around AU$200). While it is more expensive than Flip 5’s current price of $129.95, it seems to be well worth the extra cost.
