  2. The power light should alternately flash on and off. This means that it is in pairing mode. It may have been connected to another nearby device if it does not flash. You may need to turn off Bluetooth on every device to connect to your iPhone.
  3. If you don't see a flashing light at first, press and hold the power button for a few seconds to enter pairing mode.
  4. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
