Whether you have Beats Studio 3 or a Beats pill, keep reading to learn the proper way to check the battery levels of your beats on your iPhone. We’ll be breaking down the methods for different Beats and Apple products in this clear and straightforward article.
Checking Beats Battery On An iPhone
Before trying out any of these methods, ensure you have paired your Beats headphones or earbuds with the Apple device.
- Turn on the Bluetooth device on your iPhone.
- All Beatsdevices have a system button used to make the headphones discoverable via Bluetooth.
- Hold the system button on the earbud’s charging case or the headphone until the LED light blinks.
- Open the Bluetooth menu on your Apple device and look in the list of discoverable devices.
- Tap on the headphone’s model, and the phone will be paired.
Fortunately, newer iOS devices only require you to turn on your phone’s Bluetooth, bring the headphone or headset near proximity, and you’ll be paired instantly.
1. Using A Charging Case
This method is the fastest way to know the remaining battery life of your Beats earbuds. It works with all iPhone devices and supports every Beats earbud, including Beats Studio Buds, Beats Fit Pro, and the Powerbeats Pro.

- After you hear a chime, say, ‘Hi, Siri.’ and ask about the battery status of your Beats earphones.

11. Checking The Battery Level From The Headphone
Some models of Beats earbuds, like the Powerbeats Pro, have blinking LED lights to indicate the battery level. The indicator light on the left earphone shows the hours of playback left.
For example, if you see a white LED light, there are at least 15 hours of playback, whereas a red LED indicates that they need to be charged.
However, some other models don’t include LED indicators. You can check your headphone model’s specifications and review the user manual to know whether or not the feature is included.
Beats Not Connecting To iPhone
1. Check The Charging Status
The most common reason the earphones won’t connect is the battery level. If the battery is nearly depleted, the headphones won’t pair. You can charge the earphones for at least 20 minutes before trying to connect.
Beats headphones provide a decent amount of playback time, but they don’t turn off automatically when music is not playing. To conserve the battery, it is recommended to switch off the earbuds or headphones when they are not in use.
2. Check The Bluetooth On Your Phone
Ensure the Bluetooth on your phone is turned on and is discoverable. If you don’t see the Bluetooth icon near the battery icon on the top right corner of the screen, go to settings, tap on Bluetooth, and turn it on.
The toggle will turn green when Bluetooth is on. If there’s a hardware issue, the toggle may turn on for a while but then turn off itself. You can also unpair the headphones and try pairing them again.
Follow these steps to pair:
- Open the Bluetooth menu from the settings.
- Tap on the ‘i’ on the right side of your headphone’s name.
- At the end of the screen, you’ll see the option ‘forget device.’
- Click on it, and your headphones will be unpaired.
- Now open your Bluetooth menu again and search for nearby devices ready to pair.
- Hopefully, you’ll see the headphone’s name. Tap on it to pair.
You can turn Bluetooth on and off on both devices, which can sometimes solve the issue. Restarting your phone can also work in some cases. Rebooting the devices can resolve any software glitches causing the problem.
3. Issues With The iOS
While Apple’s iOS crashes less than an android device, some hardware or software issues can still create problems with its functionality. Devices running earlier iOS versions can face this issue and need to update their iOS to get the latest updates and bug fixes for better functionality.
If you still fail to pair the earbuds or cannot view the battery percentage, there can be a hardware issue, an iOS malfunction, or a faulty headphone. In situations like these, it’s best to approach a certified professional who can troubleshoot and diagnose the problem. They have the expertise to resolve the issue without you worrying about anything.
Connecting Beats earphones to your iPhone is straightforward. Reviewing the information presented here will assist you in securing your wireless headphones without a hitch.
