So update on this, this solution worked for me and has made my iPhone —> BTR5 usable again. I created a slightly different shortcut that works a little better for me and then set it to run automatically when my phone connects to the BTR5 over Bluetooth. If anyone is interested in using the shortcut I made, here is a link.

Great news! Thanks for the shortcut loaded it up now. This was stopping me from getting the UTWS3, it’s tempting now...

Starting to think that it could be worth me not getting a BTR or similar if Apple are doing this sort of thing. Maybe a separate device for music is the way to go. How does work in terms of streaming, can they piggy back of a phones hotspot for 4G?

No no, don’t tell me, they will Bluetooth too, likely to suffer the same problem?

Digital Audio Players are worth looking in to, Fiio has a wide range for each budget. Most connect via WiFi and mobile hotspots, music can also be stored in the SD card.

Very tempted to up my budget to £250 now for a player that I absolutely did not want 20mins ago.

Can someone help me with the BTR5 configuration?

I'm trying to set it to be my sound card for my computer, but some characteristcs of this dap are driving me crazy: i plug it using a usb to usb-c cable to my computer, but the battery just doesn't recharge and every 2~3 minutes it goes silent, even though the computer shows that everything is plugged normally. I can even see the name "btr5" when I click in the sound icon.

So, everything goes mute, and then I have to unplug and plug it again to the computer.

I really don't know if this is some kind of configuration, or the dap is just with some deffect. It was working properly, aside the non-recharging battery, but not nothing is working. Can it be some kind of bluetooth interference?

Help! XD I'm about to through it in the trash bin!

Go to the settings menu of the btr5 and turn on charging.

-Turn on the Btr5
-Press the power button for 3 sec
-Switch through the settings by pushing the play button
-On "Charge" menu press the volume up button one time

Plug the Btr5 to your computer.

Hope this helps.

The Apple headphone notifications for exceeding a certain volume can be turned off. Go to settings >sound and haptic >headphone safety

turn it off there

The option to turn off the headphone notifications is not available on all devices (including mine). Sounds like it may depend on certain local regulations or something.

Can your BTR5 be charged by the charger instead?

It has charging protection detection, when the output power from the usb port is lower than 4.6V, the charging in BTR5 will stop.

I’m about to get a BTR5 - but I do also want to wire this to my iPhon at times. What will I need? I have IEM’s, will wrap that cable up to make shorter but the other end, BTR to phone, USB-C to lightning?
