- The screen display depends on whether it is a new device or one that you have connected before.
For a new device, commonly Bluetooth Pairing Request will appear on the screen to ask you to confirm the code shown on the Bluetooth device that you want your iPhone to connect to it. Therefore, you must confirm with the same code and choose Pair.
You must do the same thing on the other device. For example, if you use a headset, the common PIN is 0000, but we suggest you read the instruction manual to verify it.
