I recently purchased Aftershocks earbuds and tried to pair them with my IPhone7 running IOS 13.6.1. It wouldn't come up on the list of discoverable devices. I turned bluetooth off then back on, I unpaired an apple watch for good measure, I even tested with my mom's own earbuds, different model, and still even hers did not come up on the list of discoverable devices.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? If so are there any workarounds?
Or has Apple made it to where only its own devices could pair to each other? Wouldn't be surprised if that was the case; Apple is very exclusive and that, in my opinion, is not always a good thing.
Thanks for any assistance/input.
