    We’ve seen conflicting reports of stereo pairing working with the latest two iOS 11.3 betas. But it is it just pairing, or are they not yet acting as a pair even after being set up like one? Can anyone give a definitive answer?

    From the reviews the option is there but apple have not activated it yet.

    I have two HP. I am running iOS 11.3 Beta 2. When you set-up the second HP it asks if you want them to run in stereo. It then asks whether the HP you are setting up is the R or L speaker. HOWEVER, they currently operate separately and NOT in stereo. Tried it twice. The HPs are NOT communicating with each other.

    I suspect it will require a software upgrade the HP as well in order for stereo pairing to function.
