Apple Watch and Bose wireless headphones won’t connect to iPhone X and Keeps on dropping and reconnecting. Bluetooth has already started troubling iPhone X users with connectivity issues to cars like BMW, Mercedes and Audi and other devices. Even with the Apple watch, iPhone X have connectivity issue and drop in connection. 

I have reset all settings, restored from backup, full factory reset and although I can get 1-2hrs of Bluetooth devices connecting properly ultimately they stop working but only for making calls.


The issue has evolved so that if I am using my headphones for music and a call comes in and I select – iphone for the audio they can’t hear me through the phone mic or headphones. I have to switch the headphones off to answer calls.


Same issue for Bluetooth in the car (Ford). I have spent hours trying to fix this and ultimately apple support have told me to have a genius bar appointment, or get a replacement phone from my provider (which there is no stock available so not possible).


I am on OS 11.1 and headphones are Beat X. I have not tried connecting via Carplay yet – as I fear this will do the same.”, Reported by iPhone X User.
