Apple is recent iOS 16 Update added a number of features to iPhoneincluding a verification step for AirPods. If you connect official AirPods, such as the the new AirPod Pro 2 headphones announced last week or the elegant, neutral-toned AirPods created in collaboration with Kim Kardashian or other compatible Bluetooth headsets – you probably won’t notice a difference.

On the other hand, if you try to connect earphones that are fraudulently declaring as AirPods, you may receive a message “unable to verify AirPods”, indicating that the earphones may be an imitation of the official AirPods. A “Do not connect” button appears below the alert, but you should still be able to connect through the Bluetooth settings.

Apple warns, however, that unverified devices may not work as expected. It’s unclear what performance issues users may experience when connecting unofficial AirPods, and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In addition to AirPod verification, new features in Apple’s latest operating system for iPhone, iPad and others include the ability to edit and “undo” messages, a customizable lock screen and upgrades to Mode. Focus, among others.

If you haven’t downloaded the update yet, allow around an hour, but keep in mind that not all devices are compatible with iOS16. Here’s how to check if your iPhone is compatible with iOS16.
