Shortcuts app controlling bluetooth?

I have a couple of bluetooth earphones connected to my iPhone. I don’t know how the iPhone manages their priority but sometimes if I’m listening from one pair and the second pair is mistakenly activated, it immediately disconnects the pair I was using.

With shortcuts able to access Bluetooth I’m thinking whether I could have a shortcut to give me a list of earphones where I could choose from the ones I want to use. It would then connect that pair and disconnect all others.

Or even better, check my location and connect my home/work or gym earphones depending on where I am.

Is this at all possible? :grinning:

Btw, great post by @RosemaryOrchard at the The Sweet Setup - Our first look at Shortcuts on iOS

Unfortunately Shortcuts in its current version allow only to toggle Bluetooth on and off, that’s all.

Would be really cool to control at device level…that includes switching my iPad’s bluetooth at certain locations so it can tether with my iPhone :grinning:

:crossed_fingers:it’ll come one day

shortcuts can completely turn off Bluetooth though, so you can replicate iOS 10 like control center behavior with a shortcut in the widget
