Starting with iOS 16, users may see a “Cannot Verify AirPods” warning on their iPhone if they attempt to connect fake AirPods to the device. Apple shared more information on this notice today in a new support document identified by the developer Steve Moser.


The support document indicates that unverified AirPods may still be connected to an iPhone, but they may not work as expected.

Apple’s warning features a prominent “Do not connect” button, but users can tap the smaller “Connect in Bluetooth settings” link to proceed with connecting the unverified AirPods if they wish. Twitter user “Tommy Boi” shared a video warning in action a few days ago after connecting fake AirPods to your iPhone (NSFW warning: the background music of the video contains vulgarity and viewer discretion is recommended).

The warning was first discovered in the code for iOS 16 Release Candidate last week.
