iPhone Xs, iPad Pro (2019), and AirPods Pro
iOS 14 and iPadOS 14
My Question or Issue
With iOS 14, Apple released automatic source switching between different apple devices depending on which source emits audio. If I have spotify open on both devices, and try and play music on either one, spotify connect and the switching goes into a loop where the AirPods Pro bounce between devices. I can pause, but that doesn’t help. I have to quit spotify on one of the devices to fix it.
Thank you for your patience and for keeping in contact.
Based on the reports and feedback we see along with tests we run on our end, this seems to be something on Apple's end and how the AirPods handle audio playback requests to Spotify automatically upon connection.
To prevent this to happen, you can use the troubleshooting steps mentioned by @rdegroot_1995 here.
