    Control Center Apple TV Remote No Longer Controls My Bose Soundbar Volume

    Since updating to iOS 16, the Apple TV remote in Control Center no longer controls the volume for my Bose soundbar, which is plugged into the ARC HDMI port. Has anyone else experienced something similar? Any suggestions on how I might be able to resolve this?

    Bose soundlink micro problems

    I just got a brand new iPhone XS max. I’ve used my Bose micro sound link with my galaxy S9 for seven months with no problems. It works with my XS max but I find that many times I have to press the button two or even three times to resume an audiobook or YouTube video. Sometimes I have to pull...

    Hey Everyone, I got a problem. I have a Late 2014 5k iMac and Bose Acoustimass 3 series V speakers. Is there anyway I can set these up without buying a very expensive receiver.

    My honest review of Bose QC 35.

    Thanks to Apple, the age of wireless audio is here and Bose Quiet Comfort 35 is my first serious wireless headphone purchase (the one I intend to keep). The reason I purchased Bose because I live in downtown and city noise is too much for my morning walk. I could hardly heard anything with...
