Edition 9to5Mac found in the firmware iOS 16 Release CandidateRC – the final beta before the open release. Usually does not differ from the final assembly. a new feature that was not announced at WWDC. It warns users when connecting fake AirPods: the message “Cannot verify the authenticity of AirPods” will be displayed.
If the wording sounds familiar, then you are not mistaken: a similar inscription appears in the settings if you put a non-original part like a battery. However, in the case of AirPods, the pop-up window will also have the “Do not connect” option. But the system does not prohibit the use of such headphones.
This is useful, given how well third-party manufacturers have learned to copy Apple headphones: they can even activate system functions like automatic connection and battery level indication.
It is noted that the function will only work with devices that simulate AirPods: when connecting Galaxy Buds or other third-party headphones, this notification will not be displayed.
