Question: Airpods quit autoconnecting...after multiple factory resets, same problem.

Hi anyone else had their airpods autoconnect crap out after about 8 months?


I have to factory reset my airpods about 3 times a week right now... and then they'll autoconnect for a day or two and then stop.


I can get them to connect if I have one in my ear and double tap it...but that's it. When I put one or both headphones in, I hear the connecting "Chime" but the bluetooth logo in the top bar of my phone remains....it never switches to the headphone symbol until I actually double tap on the earphone. And even then, it only connects for Spotify, not for Siri or Phone calls.


Rather frustrating for a $170 pair of headphones.


NOTE: they worked fine with my iPhone 6s+, then for the first couple months of my iPhone 8+... but no longer.
