Things to keep in mind when connecting multiple speakers to iPhone
There are a few things you need to keep in mind when you are connecting two or more bluetooth speakers on a single device such as the iPhone.
#1. Using Bluetooth
If you are using Bluetooth to connect multiple speakers to an iPhone then you need to make sure that both of them are running the latest version of Bluetooth.
This is because if one of them is running an older version of Bluetooth then it can cause problems in communication.
#2. Direct Connection
It is also possible to have a direct connection between the iPhone and two bluetooth speakers because you can use an audio jack splitter which will use the same port but give you multiple ports as output.
You can connect multiple speakers to those ports and all will be connected to the same iPhone and play music as well.
#3. Connect through Wireless router
If you have a wireless router available and can connect your bluetooth speakers via them then it can be the best thing.
Since Bluetooth has limited range and wired connection obviously isn’t flexible, connecting via wireless router gives you both range and flexibility.
#4. Select Speakers in iTunes
If you have already set up your speakers in your iTunes library then you just have to select ‘Group‘ next to the song you are playing so that it plays on all of the speakers.
If only one speakers shows up them remove it by using the ‘–‘ button and don’t select anything other than stereo as a group setting for the best experience.
#5. Connect Speakers via AirPlay
Once everything is setup, you can play songs via them and test if everything is working properly or not.
Don’t play any songs by selecting only one speaker as you will not get a surround sound experience if you do that.
Well, that is basically all there is to connecting two bluetooth speakers to iPhone at the same time.
You can connect them via bluetooth, audio cables or even via your wireless router as well but we think the bluetooth option is the most convenient one.
However, if you don’t have wireless speakers then the next best is to go for non-wireless connection using cables.
