Failing AirPods Connections
If you’re being annoyed by one of your AirPods failing while the other still works – well, you’re not alone in that, either. Part of this is caused by an innate battery issue. AirPods default to one mic first, typically the left one (although this can be changed). That means this AirPod’s battery is going to run out first, which leaves you with power in only one side. There’s no way around this issue, and it’s likely to get worse as your AirPod batteries age.
If your disconnections don’t appear related to battery life, then it’s just an unfortunate defect in the AirPods. Sometimes resetting the AirPods completely can fix the connection issue, but there’s no guarantee this will work. If your AirPods are still under warranty, you can get a free replacement, otherwise you will have to buy new components.
