Before the advent of Bluetooth, phones came with headphone jack ports. But this is no longer the case. Nowadays, Apple designs iPhones without headphone jack ports. Wireless headphones are increasingly popular among iPhone users. They’re no longer a luxury but a must-have accessory. So, how do you connect wireless headphones to iPhone?
Like any technology, wireless connectivity may seem daunting for some iPhone users. First, you need the best wireless headphones. Most people use Sony, Bose, Plantronics, or Beats headphones. The pairing process for all four brands is similar, with slight differences.
