The first step is going to be the pairing process. Now JBL and Apple have never been in the favor of a 3.5mm jack so your only option to pair them together is via Bluetooth. Considering how all modern JBL speakers use Bluetooth as a connection protocol, the pairing is very easy.

Now go ahead and press the Bluetooth button for 2-3 seconds, this will put your speaker in pairing mode and this is indicated by blinking blue light.
