I’m finding that, with increasing frequency, some days my AirPods Pro will just randomly stop playing audio. In most cases, I can squeeze the stem or hit play on my iPhone X and it picks right back up again (so far I’ve only noticed when listening to various podcasts in Overcast but this use case accounts for around 90% of the time I’m using my AirPods). Less commonly, this won’t work and I’ll have to open up the BT menu in settings and reconnect them, or take both buds out, put them back in the case, close the case, then put them back in my ears again. This seems to happen several times an hour if it’s happening at all, but again, it’s seemingly random, day-to-day.
But wait, there’s more! Also increasingly, I will be driving with my phone sitting in a cradle on my dashboard, sometimes listening to a podcast through stereo BT, other times not listening to anything, and will get the little pop-up from the top of the screen saying AirPods connected. Somehow. From my gym bag, in the trunk, inside a closed AirPods case. This, too, can happen a few times a day or not at all, but even disconnecting the device from BT menu in settings usually only fixes it temporarily, and it will reconnect again a few minutes later and I have to do this dance over and over again, and often enough that when I actually want to put my headphones in, one of them is inevitably dead (presumably from continuously trying to connect to my phone all day long from inside the case) and I need to recharge them before I can use.
Why is this happening? Are these issues related? I bought these new in January so I can’t imagine they’re going bad on me already. These issues started about a month ago and are becoming increasingly more frequent. I’m not on any betas except for Overcast. Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated, I am slowly going insane.
