When AirPods are connected, but not 🎧 CONNECTED

I’m listening to music or a podcast (likely MPU, of course!) on the iPhone 12 Pro Max in my pocket, with my AirPods Pro. The AirPods are clearly connected, as audio is coming through, but I don’t have the headphones icon :headphones: in the top right corner.

Sure enough, if I stop and announce “Hey Siri…” my phone in my pocket cannot hear me, because it is not listening through the AirPods. Because even though it’s connected, it’s not connected. So I press the power button on the phone in my pocket until I hear the Siri beep… through the AirPods, which couldn’t hear me before. Then I can talk to Siri and hear her response - through the AirPods. And when I’m done, I’m still not :headphones: connected, which I know because my AirPods still cannot hear me say “Hey Siri!”

Does this happen to anyone else, or is it just me?

I’m getting something like this, but I haven’t stopped to figure out what is going on.

I feel like the feature to share AirPods better with the Mac has introduced a bug that is really impacting how much I love my AirPods
