    I've tried to connect my Bluetooth headphones to mi iPhone 7 Plus but no luck. I tried turning BT on and off, hard resetting, but the device doesn't even appear on the list. I have an older iPhone and it connects just fine. Anyone know how to fix it?

    The headphones may be just not compatible. Have you tried connecting other Bluetooth devices to your iPhone 7? Also have you tried removing the pairing from your old phone and then trying to do it on your new phone? May be the reason why its not appearing

    As mentioned above, remove the pairing from the old phone, or make sure the old phone is switched off so that the headphones won't automatically connect to it.

    Other than that they should work, even the latest Bluetooth spec is backwards compatible with older specs. So just make sure you do the above and put the headphones into pairing mode and they should appear.
