So, you bought a pair of JLab earbuds and you’re ready to rock out on your iPad. But how do you actually connect them? It’s not as complicated as it sounds – all you need is a few minutes and these 3 easy steps. Read on for the full guide on connecting your JLab earbuds to your iPad. 

Step 1: Turn On the Bluetooth Functionality 

The first step is to make sure that the Bluetooth functionality of your iPad is turned on. To do this, go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure the switch next to “Bluetooth” is set to “On”. If it isn’t, move the slider so that it turns green and then tap “Done” at the top right corner of the screen. This will ensure that your device can recognize external devices such as headphones or speakers. 

Step 2: Turn On Your Earbuds and Put Them into Pairing Mode 

Next, turn on your earbuds by pressing and holding down the power button until they flash blue (this usually takes around 10 seconds). When they are flashing blue, they are in pairing mode – which means that they are ready to be connected with other devices via Bluetooth. At this point, you should see “Jlab Audio-xxxx” appear in the list of available devices in your settings menu. Tap on this device name if it appears – if not, proceed with step 3 below!      

Step 3: Connect Your Earbuds to Your iPad 

If “Jlab Audio-xxxx” does not appear in your list of available devices, try turning off and then back on again both your earbuds and your iPad. After doing this, try searching for available devices from within Settings > Bluetooth one more time – you should now see “Jlab Audio-xxxx” appear in the list of available devices! Tap on it to connect, and voila – you should now be able to use your JLab earbuds with your iPad!  


Connecting JLab earbubs to an iPad doesn’t have to be difficult or intimidating! By following these three simple steps—turning on Bluetooth functionality; turning on earbuds and putting them into pairing mode; connecting them via Settings—you’ll be listening through JLabs before you know it! Happy listening!
