Investigating the Cause of Randomly Pausing Airpod Pros

There are a few possible explanations for why your AirPods Pro might be randomly pausing. One possibility is that the Automatic Ear Detection feature is not working correctly, wich could be caused by dirt or debris blocking the sensors. Another possibility could be that you are moving your head in a way that causes the AirPods to become dislodged from your ears, which would then cause them to pause. Lastly, if you have recently updated the software on your device, it’s possible there is a bug causing the issue. To address this issue, try cleaning the sensors with a soft cloth and ensuring they are securely seated in your ears before use. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, try resetting your AirPods by pressing and holding the setup button on the back of each AirPod for 10 seconds until you hear three beeps. If none of these steps work, contact Apple Support for further assistance.

Preventing AirPods Pro from Pausing

To stop your AirPods Pro from pausing automatically, you need to open the Settings app on your iPhone. Once you’ve opened the app, tap Bluetooth and find your AirPods. Tap the “More Information” icon (the “i” with a circle aroud it) then toggle the switch for “Automatic Ear Detection” off. This should prevent your AirPods Pro from automatically pausing when not in use.

Preventing AirPods from Auto Pausing

To stop your AirPods from auto-pausing, go to the Bluetooth settings on your device, then tap on the “i” symbol next to “AirPods”. This will bring up the settings where you can disable the Automatic Ear Detection feature. To do this, simply deactivate the toggle next to it and this should stop your AirPods from automatically pausing your music when you take them out.

Troubleshooting AirPods That Keep Stopping

AirPods may stop playing audio if the Automatic Ear Detection feature is enabled. This feature pauses playback when the AirPods are removed from your ears, which can be helpful for conserving battery life. However, it can also cause the AirPods to pause when they’re still in your ears, which can be annoying. To fix this issue, you can disable Automatic Ear Detection in your AirPods settings (Settings > Bluetooth > i next to your AirPods). Once this setting is disabled, your AirPods should no longer pause while they’re still in your ears.
