How to Connect Two Bluetooth Speakers to One iPhone

iPhone and two Bluetooth speakers

Ever since the adoption of dual audio in Bluetooth 5.0, playing audio on two connected speakers at the same time has never been easier. Yet, some devices still do not support or limit specific Bluetooth features. As a result, many users still find it difficult to share music between two speakers, especially if they’re using an iPhone.

Apple used to support “Audio Sharing” on non-Apple devices, but they’ve long disabled support. Now only a small number of Apple-owned devices are compatible with this feature. If you want to connect your iPhone with two Bluetooth speakers, your best option is a Bluetooth adapter.

A dual 5.1 Bluetooth Transmitter Receiver Adapter can pair two different Bluetooth devices at the same time and offers many configuration options. It’s easy to use, and there is no need to download any additional software. Furthermore, you’ll only need to complete the setup once since turning the adapter on again will automatically reconnect to the last connected devices.

You can connect your iPhone to a Bluetooth adapter (via a 3.5mm audio cable), so you can wirelessly stream music through two speakers simultaneously. You can accomplish this connection using the Bluetooth adapter in transmitter (TX) mode.
