When Beats Fit Pro won’t connect to the iPhone, the first step is to restart the Bluetooth, unpair other devices, and shorten the proximity.

If that doesn’t help, you’ll need to either reset the earbuds or your iPhone’s network settings.

Why Won’t My Beats Fit Pro Connect?

There are multiple reasons why Beats Fit Pro won’t connect to the iPhone, especially when iOS is the best-supported operating system for Beats.

To diagnose the fault, let’s review the culprits:

  • Temporal pairing or Bluetooth option bug/glitch.
  • Ongoing Bluetooth pairing with another device.
  • Low battery charge on one or both the earbuds.
  • Wireless interference is congesting your signal.
  • System-related problem on your Beats Fit Pro.
  • System-related problem in the iPhone settings.

That’s all. Now, let’s tackle and address each of these possibilities!

How to Fix When Beats Fit Pro Not Connecting to iPhone?

Tip: We recommend following the steps chronologically!

1. Toggle Bluetooth OFF & ON

The first and the simplest step against connection problems on Beats Fit Pro to iPhone iOS is to toggle the Bluetooth OFF and ON.

This is a simple restart, and will not erase Bluetooth profiles, but is enough to refresh the service and hopefully allow you to connect your Beats buds easily.

  • To turn off Bluetooth go to Settings → Bluetooth → Toggle OFF → Toggle ON.

You can also restart Bluetooth on your iPhone by accessing the Quick Menu by swiping down from the top of the screen.

It’s enough to tap once on the Bluetooth icon, which will turn off the feature, and after a few seconds, tap the Bluetooth icon again, to turn on the services freshly.

Unpair Other Connections!

A very important factor to consider is whether your iPhone is actively (automatically) pairing with other devices in the surrounding area. 

The iPhone can’t be paired with more than one Bluetooth device simultaneously.

So if you’re automatically connecting to a different device than the Beats, this may be the reason why the Beats Fit can’t connect. 

Tip: We recommend forgetting ALL other Bluetooth profiles (connections) on your iPhone!

2. Shorten Bluetooth Proximity

The Bluetooth distance (proximity) is one of the most important factors when it comes to pairing issues with Beats Fit Pro to iPhone.

The recommended Bluetooth distance is about 30 feet but is heavily dependent on the environment, wireless interference, and capabilities of your device.

So, while pairing, keep your Beats Fit Pro, right next to your iPhone!

Try not to have other devices in between, considering that even a phone or earbuds capsule case can interfere with the signal.

3. Fully Recharge the Earbuds

Another very possible reason for the connection problems with your Beats Fit Pro to the iPhone is the actual battery charge.

If your case wasn’t charging, the earbuds might have been left with no charge, which ultimately leads to pairing problems not only with iPhones but with any device.

Here’s a quick guide on how to charge Beats Fit Pro correctly:

  1. Put both earbuds into the charging case.
  2. Then, close the lid tightly and securely.
  3. Plug the USB-C connector into an adapter.
  4. The adapter then plugs into a power outlet.
  5. Connect the other end to the Beats capsule.

While the case is under 40% battery, the light will be red, so if you see a red light, you need to leave your earbuds charging for a while.

We recommend keeping them plugged into the power for about 30 minutes and then trying to connect to your iPhone.

Note: Verify that the power outlet used for charging is working!

4. Avoid Wireless Interference

Wireless interference is one of the primary causes of connection issues between the Beats Fit Pro and your iPhone or any other Bluetooth device.

It’s hard to say exactly what may interfere with the connection, but you can review a quick list of things to do or dislocate to minimize signal congestion.

Here are a couple of tips and tricks against signal interference:

  • Turn “OFF” the Bluetooth feature on nearby devices.
  • Remove cases from your phone or earbuds capsule.
  • Move away from metallic/reflective objects or surfaces.

Unpair from Other Devices!

One very important thing is to unpair your iPhone from other Bluetooth devices that could be preventing your Beats Fit Pro from connecting.

If your iPhone automatically pairs with another Bluetooth device, when the feature is turned on, you’ll surely need to disconnect first and then pair your Beats Fit Pro.

Tip: To permanently disconnect from other devices, follow the instructions in the next step!

5. Forget and Re-Pair Earbuds

6. Factory Reset the Beats Pro

Here’s how to factory reset Beats Fit Pro in easy steps:

  2. Leave the lid open and find the “System” button.
  3. Hold the “System” button for about 15 seconds.
  4. Release when the indicator flashes red and white.

When the Beats Fit Pro earbuds are reset to factory settings, double-check whether your iPhone is connected to other Bluetooth devices.

If not, scroll up and use the instructions in the previous step to pair the Beats Fit Pro to your iPhone successfully.

If this is not working either, there is one more thing to do…

7. Reset your Network Settings

The pairing problem with your Beats Fit Pro may not be related to the earbuds or Bluetooth but to your phone’s system.

One proven way to flush the Bluetooth cache and start over is to reset your network settings through the iPhone’s settings, which comes with a significant downside.

The networking reset will permanently erase the cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth settings, which will delete all saved passwords.

If you’re ready to proceed, here are the steps to reset the network on your iPhone:

  1. First, open the “Settings” app from the main screen.
  2. Then tap the “General” section to reveal the settings.
  3. Go all the way down to “Transfer or Reset iPhone.”
  4. Finally, press “Reset” → “Reset Network Settings.”

This may take a while!

However, when ready, no other devices will pair to your iPhone’s Bluetooth, so feel free to check if you can now connect your Beats Fit Pro. 

If the connection still fails, we strongly recommend testing pairing to another device, which will diagnose and localize the pairing issue even further.

Quick Tip: As a last resort, check your Beats Fit Pro warranty!
