Apple announces that iOS 16 will detect counterfeit AirPods

Starting with iOS 16, if Apple users try to connect fake AirPods to the iPhone, they may see the " Cannot verify AirPods " alert on the iPhone, Apple announced today on the official website support page. This news is the same as what was previously revealed.

As can be seen from the figure, after the user connects the fake AirPods to the iPhone, a pop-up window of "Cannot verify AirPods" will appear, then there is a prominent button " Do not connect " at the bottom, and a small button " In Connect in Bluetooth settings ".

Not only the iPhone, but users who receive this alert when trying to connect their AirPods with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch need to confirm that the AirPods are genuine, Apple said. "You can choose not to connect unauthenticated AirPods, or connect them in the Bluetooth settings. If you connect unauthenticated AirPods, they may not function as expected."
