The cottage AirPods are cold! Apple iOS 16 officially supports counterfeit detection

News on September 13th, recently, Apple officially announced that iOS16 supports the detection of knock-off AirPods. It is reported that if a user connects a copycat AirPods under this system, a warning "Cannot verify AirPods" will pop up on the iPhone to remind the user. This means that the knockoff version of AirPods will be "revelation." (Image source: Apple's official website) In fact, this is not the first time Apple has done this. Earlier in the iOS system, the device would warn the user if it detected a non-genuine iPhone or iPad part, this time it just further expanded the detection range to AirPods. However, although the unverifiable warning pops up on the phone, it can still be used. From this, it can be seen that Apple has not done anything but allows these knockoff AirPods to connect. (Image source: Apple official website) At this stage, there are many copycat AirPods, especially the copycat headphones from Huaqiangbei, which are almost the same as the official AirPods in appearance and shape, and even have the same functions as the official AirPods, such as pop-up window, positioning, in-ear detection, etc. , so that consumers are hard to guard against. Even if the experience is not as good as the original headset, it is difficult for ordinary consumers to distinguish intuitively. Therefore, some unscrupulous merchants sell these fake AirPods under the banner of genuine AirPods, and consumers are easy to be tricked if they are not careful. (Image source: Apple's official website) And Apple's new pop-up warning function is mainly to prevent some unscrupulous merchants selling fake goods. Remind users to beware of being deceived by assisting in identifying whether AirPods are genuine. I have to say that Apple has done a good job in identifying genuine products, and I hope other manufacturers can follow up in time. For consumers, the importance of this feature is self-evident. After all, consumers don't want to spend a lot of money to buy fakes. In addition, Xiaolei also hopes that consumers can keep their eyes open, try to buy products from formal channels, and do not give unscrupulous merchants an opportunity to take advantage of.
