    Anyone here on any of the 11.1 betas notice their AirPods audio stopping while the audio itself is still playing?

    I've been having a strange glitch while playing music to my AirPods when the screen is locked, where the phone just stops sending audio to the AirPods, even though it's still actually playing in whatever app. I've seen it happen in iTunes, Spotify, and iBooks. The audio will stop, the phone will become unresponsive for a few seconds, and when the screen does come on I can see that the audio is still playing, but with no output. Cycling to phone output and then back to AirPods fixes the playback, until it happens again.

    I understand it's a beta, and I've submitted reports, just curious if anyone has seen similar?

    Yes I’ve seen this about 3-4 times on beta 11.1.

    I’ve not reported it yet but it’s as you describe - audio stops abruptly, checking your phone they show the AirPods icon on the status bar and the time of the song is still ticking along normally.

    Yep, that's exactly it. Cant figure out what sets it off either. Oddly enough, it seems to not happen (or not as much) if the phone is bottom down (speakers pointing down). Normally when I'm holding it, and move to put in my pocket etc, I end up putting it in upside down because of how I was holding it, and shortly after, the glitch happens.

    Yup, happens here, but not just on Airpods. It happens on BeatsX and on my car Bluetooth as well.

    As far as I can tell, this stopped happening in beta 4 that came out a couple days ago.

    I've heard a Reset All Settings fixes this in Beta 4. Trying it now.

    Yes, yes it did. I have not had the problem on any Bluetooth device since the update to b4. Have not tested yet with b5.

    Any update to this issue? I started having this exact problem recently with my iPhone 7 Plus and my AirPods. The phone is running IOS 11.4 and the AirPods run 3.7.2. I’ve tried everything mentioned but have no luck. I just noticed mine will do it more if I set my phone face down. I might have to visit the Apple Store if it continues.
