Bug Riddled Apple AirPods, Now Have Another Problem
Apple’s bug riddled AirPods have another problem, this time users are complaining that the AirPods are dropping audio when used with an iPhone 6 and other Apple iPhones.
Previously it was battery problems that plagued the latest Apple invention.
According to Digital Trends and a thread on Apple’s support website, users are experiencing the issue in varying degrees — some report having the issue only once every hour or so, while others find it happening once per minute. In most cases, it’s only phone call audio that’s being cut while music continues to play normally.
The issue is also largely limited to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, although some users of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are also reporting problems. A few of the comments suggest that in some cases an Apple Watch was also connected to the phone, which could make the problem worse, however other comments show that Apple Watch connectivity isn’t the root cause of the issue, as some users who don’t have an Apple Watch connected are still experiencing the problem.
According to a report from MacRumors, users have spoken to Apple engineers about the issue, and even replicated the issue for staff — so Apple is well aware of the problem.
