Why Are My AirPods Not Connecting to My iPhone?

If your AirPods aren’t connecting to your iPhone, the reasons could range from Bluetooth issues, software glitches, outdated software versions, or AirPods battery problems. In some cases, the problem might also be due to distance between the devices, dust or debris in the AirPods case, or simple syncing issues.
