Are AirPods fake? iOS 16 will be able to alert iPhone users

Apple has given iOS a lot of functionality to evaluate devices that connect to the iPhone. With this feature, it can detect and alert users to abnormal situations that may go against their wishes.

With iOS 16 about to arrive, one more of its novelties has now been discovered. This new Apple operating system will be able to detect fake versions of AirPods and thus alert users who connect them to the iPhone.


Apple has been providing iOS with some hardware evaluation features. This system is already capable of detecting screens and fingerprint sensors that are not manufactured by Apple and alerting users in these situations, going so far as to not allow them to work.

With the iOS 16 RC released, it was possible to detect a new feature in this system that will be useful to help many users. From what has been revealed, it will be able to detect unofficial versions of AirPods and other Apple phones.

These earphones could not be verified as genuine AirPods and may not behave as expected.

When pairing these phones with the iPhone, iOS will detect this abnormal scenario and display the message shown above. In addition to this notification, more information will be available on how to detect fake AirPods and other important user data.

In the same notification it will also be possible to access a link that will contain additional information about this process and the causes for it to have happened, which will be hosted on an Apple website. The user may interrupt the association or terminate the connection of the AirPods.

Of course, this scenario should only happen with phones that are intended to pass for AirPods or other Apple models. iOS 16 will work normally with all other phones from other manufacturers, as it should normally.

This is a great new feature in iOS 16 to help iPhone users. Many buy cheap copies of AirPods, which are far from offering what Apple’s originals give users.
