iOS 16 can detect fake AirPods

iOS 16 has already started rolling out in the Philippines earlier and a lot of you might have downloaded it. Aside from all of its refinements and other software upgrades, the new Apple mobile operating system has a new nifty trick—it can now detect counterfeit or fake AirPods.

iOS can now detect fake AirPods!

Fake AirPods are very common and counterfeiters have managed to clone nearly every aspect of the Airpods from packaging, hardware, and even the pairing process making it hard for users to distinguish if the earbuds are genuine or not. Even the serial numbers on fake sets can show on Apple's site sometimes as per AppleInsider.

This new method is one of Apple's ways of combatting it and telling the public that the experience won't be the same as the genuine ones.

So how it works? When you pair a fake AirPods or AirPods Pro to your iOS 16 iPhone/devices, a prompt will appear telling the user that it "Cannot Verify AirPods" if it is a counterfeit. There is even a message stating that "These headphones could not be verified as genuine AirPods and may not behave as expected."

A support document revealed earlier that the fake AirPods can still be connected, but may not behave as expected.

What do you guys think?
