fix iphone 11 that can't connect to windows 10 laptop via bluetooth after pairing
I cannot connect my iPhone 11 running IOS 13.3.1 with my Surface Pro 6 laptop running Windows 10 Enterprise version 1809.
I can pair the devices so that both devices will show up in the others' OS list of blue tooth paired devices (see img1, img2).
When I try to connect the iPhone to the laptop by selecting "laptop name...Not Connected" from the list of paired devices in the MY DEVICES area, I get the following error pop-up on the iPhone - "Connection Unsuccessful 'laptop name' is not supported" where the only option is to Forget Device (see img 3).
When I select Forget Device, the "laptop name" is deleted from the MY DEVICES section and moved to the OTHER DEVICES section (see img 4).
Selecting the "laptop" from the OTHER DEVICES section returns error pop-up - "Pairing Unsuccessful "laptop name" is not supported" where the only option is OK (see img 5).
FYI, I have tried all of the obvious things like turning blue tooth on and off on both devices, resetting network settings on iPhone, looking for driver updates for windows, etc. img-1.PNG img-2.jpg img-3.jpg img-4.jpg img-5.jpg
You cannot do file transfer via Bluetooth connection to an iPhone. The message of "Not supported" is the results expected.
You want to share internet connection from your iPhone?
If you want to share the mobile network from your iPhone to Win 10 via Bluetooth, turn off wifi and Personal Hotspot in your iPhone and turn on Bluetooth and Personal Hotspot. Then, connect to iPhone via Bluetooth from Windows 10.
