You are not alone if your AirPods Pro keep disconnecting while using your iPhone. Many AirPods users have reported their AirPods cannot produce a stable connection with their iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. No worries, here’s our guide to resolving the issue.
How to Fix AirPods Pro That Keep Disconnecting from iPhone
Our below troubleshooting tips should fix most connectivity-related issues between your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Before we proceed, ensure that your device is running the latest firmware update. A new update usually includes fixes for bugs or glitches that prevent your AirPods from connecting to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
Method 1: Unpair AirPods from iPhone
The first shot for fixing the issue is to unpair your AirPods from your iPhone and re-establish the connection between both devices. To do it, simply put your AirPods in the charging case, wait for a few seconds, and take them out again to reconnect them. This should fix specific connectivity issues between your AirPods and iPhone. Otherwise, make sure you read on.
Method 2: Ensure Your AirPods and iPhone Are Close
If your AirPods keep disconnecting from your iPhone, there is a good chance that they are too far from each other. Apple’s optimal Bluetooth range for a pair of AirPods is between 30 and 60 feet. So try to bring both devices closer to see if the problem is fixed.
Method 3: Turn Off Bluetooth and Turn it Back On
If the problem persists, the next step is to disable and re-activate Bluetooth on your iPhone or any paired devices. You can disable all wireless connections on your iPhone by toggling Airplane mode. To do it, open Control Center > Airplane mode. Wait for around 20 seconds and turn it back on.
Method 4: Turn Off Automatic Ear Detection
Automatic Ear Detection is a great feature that automatically detects when your AirPods are in your ears. However, it can sometimes cause your AirPods to disconnect from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. To turn it off, go to Settings > Bluetooth > tap the “i” icon and disable the Automatic Ear Detection.
Method 5: Ensure Automatic Switching Is Turned Off
Your AirPods will automatically switch between Apple devices if they are in range. We recommend you turn off this functionality to avoid wireless interference. To do it, go to Settings > Bluetooth > Hit the “i” icon. After that, tap Connect to This iPhone > When Last Connected to This iPhone. Repeat the process on iPhone or iPad.
Method 6: Reset Network Settings
Resetting network settings should fix most connectivity issues. To do it, go to Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
