Best practices

  • Update your software to the most recent (currently 8.1.1 as of 12/04/14)
    Bluetooth icon (highlighted)

    Highlighted Bluetooth icon

    • Choose “Settings,” then “General” from the left and “Software Update” to check your iPad’s software
  • Turn OFF auto-locking/sleeping
    • Choose “Settings,” then “General” from the left
    • Scroll down to “Auto-Lock” on the right
    • Change setting to “Never”
  • Make sure Bluetooth is turned ON
    • Swipe up from the bottom of your iPad
    • Make sure the Bluetooth icon is highlighted (should look like the icon displayed to the right)
  • If you can’t get audio from your iOS device to work, call the OIT help desk at 856 225 6274
    (or you could try powering down the blackbox by resetting the powerstrip, but this will take some time to come back up and who knows who might get shirty about it…)
