I recently had some Anker Soundcore Spirit X headphones replaced under warranty. When I tried to pair them with my new iPhone 11Pro, I couldn’t get them to connect (yes, I tried all the tricks for Bluetooth pairing). I decided to try with an old iPhone 8 running iOS 12 and they paired immediately with no issues. I was even able to pair them to my Apple Watch Series 5.
I wrote to Anker support and was told there is some issue with this model and that new hardware will be out in 4 weeks to resolve the issue.
Has anyone heard of other BT hardware having issues like this with the new iPhones or iOS? Did Apple change something with their BT support, or did Anker cut some corners with this specific device? I’m just curious as I haven’t seen howls of pain on the internet but seems like it could be a pretty big deal.
