What Should Be Noted When Connecting Sonos Speakers To iPhones?

Consider these points when attempting to connect your speaker’s system and iPhone.


You can group any Sonos device into multi-room playback when an AirPlay-compliant device plays AirPlay audio.

For multi-room listening, you can also pair any other speaker of the same brand with an AirPlay 2-compliant speaker. Go to the Settings menu in the speaker app and touch System > AirPlay. Then enable Group Non-AirPlay products if you want your non-AirPlay compatible goods to stay grouped with other items when you start playing AirPlay music.


If you’re using an Apple or AirPlay-compatible TV that needs a password to function on your network, you could be asked for it while trying to transmit AirPlay music to Sonos. Ensure “Require Password” is off within the AirPlay settings on your Apple TV or other AirPlay-capable TV.

The iPhone is currently on a call.

The speaker connection may be interrupted if your device is on a call. When the call is finished, you will need to re-apply.

How To Fix Connection Problems?

If your connection is unsuccessful, you may try the following techniques to resolve the problem:

  • Examining the Connections: Check your phone’s wifi signal, and confirm that the speaker is linked to the same wifi network.
  • Reset both devices: If the connection breaks, try rebooting and testing the relationship again. Restarting the system might improve the link.
