Do you experience connection problems with your PowerBeats Pro?
Many users have been complaining about connection issues with their PowerBeats Pro. Some experience frequent disconnection and others have difficulty pairing with devices.
We understand that not being able to use your PowerBeats Pro can be frustrating. If you also encounter connection problems, we got you covered.
Fortunately, there are several troubleshooting steps you can take to resolve connection problems with your Power Beats Pro.
In this guide, we will show you everything you need to know on how to address this issue.
1. Clean Your PowerBeats Pro.
Before anything, you will want to clean your PowerBeats Pro if you encounter connection problems.
Your PowerBeats Pro may not be working properly due to unsuccessful charging.
Dirt and debris may have accumulated on the charging case. This prevents your PowerBeats Pro from making good contact with the charging pins on the case.
If you find that one of the earbuds is not charging, it’s possible that the charging pins are dirty.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Grab a microfiber cloth and gently clean your PowerBeats Pro and its charging case. Make sure there is no dirt build-up on the contact points.
- Place your PowerBeats Pro into the charging case. Ensure that both earbuds are connected to the contact point.
After several minutes, reconnect your PowerBeats Pro to check if the problem is solved.
2. Check Battery Status.
Another reason why you encounter connection problems on your PowerBeats Pro is failing batteries.
When the batteries on your PowerBeats are starting to degrade, they might not have enough power to keep your earbuds working.
Here’s how you can check your PowerBeats Pro’s battery life.
- Turn on your PowerBeats Pro and pair it with your device.
- Make sure that both earbuds are securely seated inside the charging case.
- Keep the case open and place your iPhone or iPad beside your PowerBeats Pro.
- A pop-up card should appear on your device indicating the battery level of your PowerBeats Pro.
Use your PowerBeats Pro for around 10 to 15 minutes. If you noticed that its battery drains too fast, then you’ll want to head to the last step to have your device checked.
3. Refresh the Connection Between Your Devices.

The LED indicator on your PowerBeats Pro will continue flashing white. This means that you can pair it with your iPhone or other devices again.

To verify this, install the latest software for your device.
