Much to the delight of users, Apple has added a small but very useful and handy feature to iOS 9 that allows you to quickly and painlessly disconnect your iPhone and iPad from a Bluetooth device connected to it.
Previously, in order to disable, say, a wireless speaker, you had to go to the Bluetooth settings, select the device you want to disconnect, and click on "Forget this device". Many active users of a Bluetooth headset spent a lot of time on this whole process, because you need to turn off the audio speaker every time someone calls.
A new feature in iOS 9 allows you to simply unplug your Bluetooth device rather than forgetting it. In order to use it, you need to go to "Settings" on an iPhone or iPad running the beta version of iOS 9, tap on the Bluetooth screen, and then touch the icon to the right of the name of the device you want to disable. If there is no connection with a wireless device, only the “Forget this device” option will be displayed on the screen. After clicking on the icon, you need to select " Disable ".
The new feature is extremely convenient, as it allows you to easily turn off the speakers and switch between multiple Bluetooth devices (for example, if you want to listen to music on headphones).
