Step 3: Enable Bluetooth on Your iPhone

In order for your iPhone to connect with Alexa, you need to enable Bluetooth. To do this, simply swipe down from the top right corner of your screen (on newer iPhones) or swipe up from the bottom of your screen (on older iPhones) to access the Control Center. Then tap on the Bluetooth icon to turn it on.

Step 4: Open Settings on Your iPhone

To proceed with connecting your iPhone to Alexa, go to the Settings app on your iPhone home screen.

Remember, this connection allows you to access certain features and control your Alexa device through your iPhone. However, keep in mind that some features may be limited compared to using an Amazon Echo speaker.
