Fix 4: Disable Other Apps asking for Bluetooth Permission

Disable Other Apps asking for Bluetooth Permission

With so many apps installed on your iPhone, there is a possibility that some app that is having Bluetooth permission is causing interference with the connectivity.

Here is how to disable Bluetooth for these apps:

1. Navigate to Settings > Privacy > Bluetooth. Here you can see all the apps that have permission to access Bluetooth.

2. Here you can toggle all the apps that don’t necessarily need Bluetooth permissions.
