Hi guys,

In the past few days i've noticed a lot of random Bluetooth disconnects using my iPhone 11 Pro Max, running iOS 13.2

My AirPods/Apple Watch etc are constantly disconnected.

I even recorded the screen and grabbed the moment how Bluetooth is showed as Unavailable in Settings, then it says Off and On again. And it just loops like that.

Tried restarting of course, even a DFU restore, however i didn't set it up as new iPhone, just restored via iCloud.

Anyone else with this issue? Do you think it's a hardware issue?

I think we need to escalate this issue so Apple is aware.

I had a slightly less aggressive but still annoying “often forgets device” issue. Basically, two BT headphones I use daily gets their connection “forgotten” and needs a new pair request to start working again. Never saw this back in even early iOS 13 beta. This situation seems to get magnified in iOS 13.2.

This is happening on my iPhone XS as well. Just today, I had 2 re-pair my AirPods twice.
