Bose Connect won't connect to S1 Pro after firmware update to version 7.1.5

Update here too: My Bose app refuses to connect.

Rebooted the phone, deleted and reinstalled the app, but .... no! I was told 20 times to turn the speaker on (some more funny messages too), that's too much for me. I give up. Bluetooth connection with the phone works perfectly but the app doesn't believe.

No biggie, let's see if the batteries hold their charge for a while.

Re: Bose Connect won't connect to S1 Pro after firmware update to version 7.1.5

Hi Peter,

When you reinstall the Bose Connect app, there should be a prompt requesting that you allow Bluetooth permission to be granted to the app. If you don't agree to that, the Bose Connect app won't see the S1 Pro systems.

You can double-check that setting like this.

iOS or iPadOS Bose Connect Can't Connect to S1 Pro

If you cannot connect the Bose Connect app to your Bose Bluetooth enabled devices

Check your iOS Bluetooth permissions

Please check your device

  • Privacy
    • Bluetooth
      • Ensure the Bose Connect app has permission to use Bluetooth



There's more in this article.

I know this isn't a high priority for you, but if you get around to trying again, please let us know if that works for you.

Hi ST,

thank you. Tried everything now but ni success. 

The app has the BT permission and was deleted and reinstalled once more. iPhone was turned off and rebooted. 

Now I remember that there is an Apple watch somewhere in my house, maybe that causes the trouble.

Re: Bose Connect won't connect to S1 Pro after firmware update to version 7.1.5

We follow carefully all the above recommendations and we can’t  connect to our Bose s1 pro, additionally we update the firmware to 7.1.7 and we follow all the above steps once again and we can’t connect we made the test with two iPhone one of them iPhone 6 Plus  iOS version 12.4.5 and iphone 8 plus with iOS 13.1.1 with both of them we have the same issue, finally we try to connect both phones to a our Bose Sound Link and the cennection was successful. We call to Bose support team and the answer was is a iPhone issue but the evidence shows that the root cause for this behavior is Bose s1 pro firmware 

what we can do to recover our Bose s1 pro? in this point we completes two months without it
