My iPhone is paired with a set of Bluetooth speakers in my office (Beoplay S3). To connect I have to manually go into Bluetooth settings and tap the device.

Is there a way to set it to connect automatically when in range? For example, my car and Beats headphones both automatically connect when turned on and in range. Alternatively, is there some sort of shortcut or way to have the speakers appear on the drop down list next to the volume slider?
