There could be several reasons why your iPhone continues playing audio even after you have taken out your AirPods. 

Here are some possible explanations:

  1. Automatic Ear Detection is turned off: By default, your AirPods should pause playback when you take them out of your ears, thanks to the Automatic Ear Detection feature. However, if this feature is turned off, your iPhone will continue playing audio even when the AirPods are not in your ears. To check if Automatic Ear Detection is turned on, go to Settings > Bluetooth > AirPods and make sure the toggle next to Automatic Ear Detection is green. 
  2. Delayed Bluetooth disconnection: It's possible that your AirPods are taking a few seconds to disconnect from your iPhone after you take them out of your ears. During this brief period, the audio may continue to play through the AirPods before switching to the iPhone's speakers.
  3. This can also be caused by our feature called "Autoplay" built into the JUKE app. This feature is designed to automatically play music again when you have paused and then resumed it, or when you have disconnected and reconnected your headphones. When you take your AirPods out of your ears, your iPhone's Bluetooth connection is disconnected. This disconnect activates the Autoplay functionality, which causes your iPhone to start playing the music again, but this time through its own speakers instead of your AirPods. You can disable this via Settings in the JUKE app.

If you continue to experience issues with your AirPods and iPhone, you can try contacting Apple support for further assistance. If you believe this to be due to the JUKE app please contact our support team through our contact form.
