How to Stop a Bluetooth Device from Syncing with Your iPhone

You will want to know how to stop a Bluetooth device from syncing with your iPhone if you have previously paired the two devices, but the Bluetooth device is being used within range of your iPhone, but you want it to sync with a device other than the iPhone. This is common with things like Bluetooth speakers and headphones, and it can cause confusion when a Bluetooth device is syncing with the wrong iPhone.

Your iPhone is automatically pairing with the Bluetooth device in an attempt to make it easier for you to use the two items together, but this interaction is undesirable if you are trying to use the Bluetooth device with a different phone, tablet or computer.
