How do I connect/pair my Sphero to a device?

Updated 1 month ago by mike moran

  • iOS Pairing
    • Remove Sphero from Induction Charger.
    • Shake Sphero awake.
    • Access iOS Bluetooth settings. 
      • Settings -> General -> Bluetooth
    • Turn on Bluetooth.  Wait for the device to detect Sphero.
    • When Sphero is detected, select it for pairing.
      • How long should this take?  ~30 seconds, but can take up to 2 minutes.
  • Android OS Pairing
    • Remove Sphero from Induction Charger.
    • Shake Sphero awake.
    • Access Android OS Bluetooth settings.
      • Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Bluetooth
      • Turn on Bluetooth
      • Tap Bluetooth Settings, then detect device.
      • When Sphero is discovered, select and pair.
        • NOTE: On Android OS, Sphero will show as paired, but will not show as active until the Android App is downloaded from the Google Play. 

If you encounter difficulty paring Sphero, especially if you cannot find it listed in your Bluetooth menu when it is on and flashing its name colors, try restarting your device by completely turning it off and turning it back on again. This will clear the Bluetooth cache and should allow Sphero to connect.
