The newly released AirPods will not work with Apple TV 4K with 12.2 beta (16L5226a).
They appear with the standard speaker icon (rather than the AirPods icon) and seem to crash/restart Bluetooth whenever you try to connect.
The older AirPods work fine.
Has anybody else had this issue?
I have the same issue, but with the AirPod - watch connection. The watch shows the AirPod as a Bluetooth headset and cannot connect. Overcast can connect, but only for 15 seconds and then the connection drops. My watch is running the 12.2 final beta. I updated my iPhone to the released version of 12.2 and there was no update for my watch. I then updated my Phone to the 12.2.1 beta, and again, no watch update. Looks like the beta 12.2 does not work with the new AirPod, yet I’ll have to wait until a new watch update to fix my watch issue.
