Go to ‘other devices’ and find your JBL speaker. Make sure both the iPhone and the speaker have their Bluetooth ‘on’.

To reset the JBL speakers simultaneously press the ‘play’ and ‘Volume up’ buttons for up to 10 seconds to reset it.

Once the iPhone is connected to the speakers, play audio on your iPhone to see if it works.
The interesting thing is that if you need the best sound quality experience then you can also connect multiple JBL speakers together to produce quality sound.
