I'm working on a project with my Raspberry Pi 3B where it detects that a certain device (in this case my iPhone X running iOS 13.3) is present by searching nearby Bluetooth devices and comparing each devices name to my Phone's name.

My problem is, my iPhone only seems to be discoverable when I manually go into the Bluetooth settings, even though it's 'paired' to the Pi. From what I remember, the phone was always discoverable on iOS 12. Also, my laptop and Android at least has an option to be always discoverable even to non-paired devices so does iOS have a similar option that I couldn't find?

Also, is there a way to make my iPhone stop saying "Raspberry Pi is not compatible with this device" or the Raspberry Pi from saying "there are no usable services on this device?
Short answer: No. iPhones are a pain to develop with.

I'm continuing the thread over on the Raspberry Pi forum: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=261804
