Here is some helpful information for Airplay 2:
- The only SoundTouch products that support Airplay 2 at this time are the ones listed above, regardless of the Bluetooth capabilities of the device.
- Using Airplay with your SoundTouch Speaker.
- If you are having issues using Airplay 2 with a Bose SoundTouch supported product:
- Please make sure your devices meet the latest requirements from Apple found here. You’ll want to make sure your Airplay 2-compatible speakers are on and nearby, connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your device and are updated to the latest software version.
- Try the ‘Difficulty selecting your SoundTouch system on an Airplay device' steps.
- While we strive to continuously offer new software features and updates to make your speakers improve over time, certain older products simply do not have the hardware components to support these features. For your SoundTouch product(s) purchased before October 2015, it may be one of the devices built without the appropriate Apple authentication chip to support Airplay 2. If you have a speaker that supports AP2, have the update, tried the troubleshooting steps above and still cannot connect to Airplay, please reach out to one of our customer representatives here and we’d be happy to assist further.
