Does your pair of AirPods keep disconnecting on iOS devices? Apple used Bluetooth technology to pair the device wirelessly, and it is the same technology that is being used on similar products. Bluetooth technology does have staggering problems, but you can solve them by following simple methods.
Why does AirPods keep disconnecting?
Apple-designed the product AirPods to function generally with Bluetooth enabled devices. Apple implemented different modules on the iPhone and iPad because Bluetooth Special Interest Group launches different versions.
You will end up having compatibility with a wide range of devices that include the Android. We didn’t even address software limitations and well-known bugs & glitches that smartphone manufacturers don’t address adequately.
The combination of Apple software in AirPods and iPhone is unable to create a stable communication. The Cupertino-based company released software patches in iOS 12.1, and it did not solve all known problems. Apple’s version of wireless audio system sensors might be suffering from interferences.
1Remove & Pair
We should apply the standard solution that has worked with every piece of the wireless module in the world. Consumers should remove the paired device from the computer and then establish a new connection.
- Put your AirPods back in the case and turn off the module.
- Tap on “Settings” to begin the process.
- Tap on “Bluetooth” to continue.
- Find the Bluetooth device and tap on the (i) button to access more options.
- Tap on “Forget This Device” to remove it from the phone.
Pair your AirPods again with iPhone or iPad or Android running device. If you believe that the connection errors are coming from the device, and then restart it to end the session. Most of the consumers don’t turn off the device for a more extended period, which leads to junk build up.
Apple invented a unique piece of technology that changed the course of premium wireless earphones. The unique factor is the charging case, which plays a crucial role in keeping the earpiece charged all-time. However, it can be overlooked by most of the consumers because the charging case does require dedicated charging time. AirPods won’t work typically if your case does not have the juice to continue any further.
- Make sure that your device and wireless earphones are connected. Grab the pair of the earpiece and put them back in the case. Please don’t close the lid and keep it open to check the battery life.
- Take a closer look at your iPhone or iPad for battery indication for Left, Right, and Charging case for remaining battery charge status.
- Charge the case immediately, if you find the AirPods having less than 10% juice left in the tank. Place the earphones back in the case and connect the charging cable to the AirPods Case.
Consumers have to keep an eye on the remaining charging left in the case ever since Apple launched the wireless audio solution. Do not overcharge to preserve the battery lifespan of the AirPods Case, and 90% should be more than enough.
Apple always moves ahead of everyone else, but it also creates problems, when you have an unstable software and a lack of consumer knowledge. Many consumers on Apple Support Communities reported that they had suffered frequent disconnections due to using one piece at a time. You can change the settings back to the original configuration, and this is how it goes.
- Open AirPods case.
- Tap on the iPhone or iPad “Settings” to begin the process.
- Tap on “Bluetooth” settings.
- Find “Microphone” and tap on it to continue.
- You have the option to set “Automatically Switch to AirPods” for automation.
You do have other options available such as “Always Left AirPod” or “Always Right AirPod,” and I implore that you better avoid it. If you don’t want to use one piece of the AirPod, then I recommend using this setting temporarily.
4Disable Automatic Ear Detection
Earlier, I have mentioned about the sensors failing to detect specific tasks, which leads to frequent disconnections. Fortunately, Apple did add enough settings to control the sensors, which is an excellent option to have on the iPhone.
Apple software will disable the sensor permanently or until you turn it back on. You have the controls at your fingertips, and you can always roll back the changes by following the same instructions. The sensors on the AirPods won’t Play/Pause the music playback when you have earphones in-ear or when taken off.
5Let iPhone Update AirPods Firmware
Apple is pushing new firmware updates for the latest AirPods to eliminate known bugs & glitches. You cannot update the firmware manually because Cupertino-based Company does it automatically. Consumers have to allow devices to update, and you have to create an environment for software managers to update it.
Find out if there’s a firmware update is available on the server, and you can read news online. Leave Wi-Fi connected iPhone paired with AirPods for ten minutes, which will give a clear signal to update the firmware without any problems. Software updates indeed improve performance and solve difficult bugs & glitches.
Consumers have to seek professional assistance from Apple Service Center if they are having unsolved disconnections. Please do not hold back when it comes to contacting the nearest Apple store because you can get a replacement for free-of-cost. Let us know which solution worked for you in the comment section below. We will also include your solution in our tutorial that could help thousands of AirPods consumers.
