iOS 11.4 Bluetooth Headphones Connection Bug
Really frustrating, it’s fixable but i still wanted to warn and let y’all know.
This is not replicable all the time by the way. Keep trying and you will be able to.
1) iPhone iOS 11.4
2) Beats X Headphones or other W1 bluetooth headphones
3) Spotify and other music apps
Now that that all is out of the way, to replicate the glitch you have to follow a few steps. Go and turn off Bluetooth directly from the settings. If this step is done correctly, you will see a line through the greyed out bluetooth sign in control center. Then, hold the power button of your Beats X and turn it on. Afterwards, turn on Bluetooth from control center. You have to click the Bluetooth sign twice to turn it on and when done correctly will look glow blue. Then play music and on the right side of Control Center you will see a 3D touch toggle for music. 3D touch that and then hit the triangle with wifi waves coming out of it and select Beats X. When you do this and the glitch works, the phone will periodically play music through the headphones and then disconnect although saying it is connected with your iPhone. You have to then go back and select Beats X to play music again. And then again, the phone will temporarily play music from Beats X and then disconnect. This doesn’t get fixed if you untether the headphones and sync them with your iPhone again. Turning off/on phone doesn’t work either but hard resetting your phone does the job and fixes your phone and bluetooth. This glitch doesn’t work all the time but I was able to replicate it twice since it first happened today (happened 3 times today in total)
