First, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled and that the Airplane Mode is disabled on your iPhone. You can do this by sliding your finger from the bottom edge of the screen to the top, to display the System Control Center, where the buttons settings are.

Also make sure that the Bluetooth device that should be connecting to the phone, such as headphones, fitness tracker or smartwatch; It is on, and if so, if it has enough charge in the battery to connect and use.

Make sure your iPhone and the device are close to each other, at a distance enough to make the connection. The standard recommendation is that the distance between Bluetooth devices does not exceed the barrier of 10 meters. However, different hardware variations of antennas, various types of interference, and different versions of the technology eventually complicate the accuracy of this range.

In summary, the closer two devices are, the better. So, when trying to pair devices or solve problems because they are not doing the pairing, make sure they are as close as possible. So, if you can pair them, you can try use with greater distance.
