Users of Apple’s AirPods have complained that their headphones are constantly disconnected from their iPhones. The problem occurs during phone calls and when listening to music on Apple Music, Spotify or any other music streaming service. Some users experience an interrupted Bluetooth connection every 30 minutes, while others experience an interrupted connection every 30 seconds.
There are many different factors that can explain why AirPods may disconnect from your iPhone or other Bluetooth devices you’ve connected them to. The most notable are compatibility issues with the latest version of iOS, hardware issues (it could be your Airpods or iPhone), and possibly some Bluetooth connectivity issues.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to determine exactly what causes the Airpods to keep disconnecting from your phone, tablet, or computer. Therefore, in this guide you will find some common diagnostic methods that you can try to hopefully solve the problem. You can test each method or combine one with another to find a solution.
