    I have hearing aids which can be paired with devices to bring sound directly into my devices.
    I have only had them for about a month, but the Bluetooth has worked fine, until yesterday.
    Now, I can easily pair them with my iPhone, but not the iPad. When I try to the iPad simply says "not connected." I have tried re-booting the iPad, opening the battery doors on the devices and even replacing the batteries. I have also made sure the Bluetooth on my phone is not connected.
    Any suggestions.

    Have you tried forgetting and repairing the hearing aids from scratch (on the iPad)?

    Great advice, because that is what I eventually did, and it worked. This was my first encounter with Bluetooth. Thanks.

    Glad it worked. Bluetooth is better than it used to be, but it can still be finicky at times.

    Well, it is happening again and this time forgetting the device and re-pairing isn't working. I've tried it 6-7 times.
    Any other ideas?

    Well, powering the iPad all the way down and restarting it never hurts. Especially if you haven’t done so recently.

    Also, make sure the batteries in your hearing aid are good.

    No other ideas. Sorry.
