Baum Varioultra40 and 8.3

Braille on Apple Products

Hi everyone.
Can you all give me instructions on how to pair my Varioultra 40 with the iPhone now that I have 8.3? What emulation is best to use? I switched it out of Pronto, and the iPhone does recognize the Varioultra, but it won't let me connect to it.

perhaps try: 'Forget this Device'; close settings in the App Switcher; lock the screen, power off the braille display; wait a minute; turn it back on and make sure Bluetooth is on; go into VO Settings; if the phone finds the display, click on its name.
Shouldn't that work? I hope it does.

All the best :-)
