What Bluetooth is my phone?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To determine the Bluetooth version on your phone, you may need to follow different steps depending on the device you are using. I’ll guide you through the general process, but keep in mind that the exact steps may vary slightly based on your phone’s manufacturer and operating system.

1. Open the Settings app on your phone. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon.

2. Look for the “Connections” or “Connected devices” option in the Settings menu and tap on it. This is where you’ll find Bluetooth-related settings on most devices.

3. In the Connections or Connected devices menu, you should see a section dedicated to Bluetooth. Tap on it to access the Bluetooth settings.

4. On some phones, you will immediately see the Bluetooth version displayed in the Bluetooth settings menu. It might be mentioned as “Bluetooth version” or something similar.

5. If you don’t see the Bluetooth version directly, look for an option like “Advanced” or “More options” within the Bluetooth settings menu. Tap on it to expand the menu and reveal additional settings.

6. Once you have accessed the advanced Bluetooth settings, you should be able to see the Bluetooth version somewhere on the screen. It might be listed as “Bluetooth version” or “Bluetooth stack version.”

7. If you still can’t find the Bluetooth version, try tapping on the three vertical dots (also known as the overflow menu) in the top right corner of the Bluetooth settings menu. From the drop-down menu, select “Show system processes” or a similar option to display all the apps and processes running on your phone.

8. Now, scroll through the list of apps and processes and locate either “Bluetooth” or “Bluetooth Share.” Tap on it to access the app info.

9. Within the app info, you should be able to find the Bluetooth version mentioned. It might appear under “App details,” “App version,” or a similar section.

10. Take note of the Bluetooth version displayed on your phone. It will usually be in the format of “Bluetooth X.X” or “Bluetooth version X.X.”

By following these steps, you should be able to determine the Bluetooth version on your phone. Remember that the exact location of the Bluetooth version may vary depending on the device, so don’t worry if the steps I provided are slightly different on your phone.

I hope this helps you find the Bluetooth version on your phone!
