If you’re using a brand new pair of AirPods Pro 2 earbuds, you’re probably not expecting your other devices to tell you that the batteries need replacing.
But that’s what’s happening to some people.
According to online reports picked up by MacRumors, the Find My app is warning people that they need to replace the battery on their left and right AirPods Pro earbuds as well as the battery case.
The notifications urge the user to “replace the battery on… soon,” even though it is not possible to replace AirPods batteries and the device simply needs to be recharged. Users experiencing the bug may not be immediately aware that it relates to their AirPods Pro, since the item is referred to in notifications as simply “left,” “right,” or “Case,” leading to somewhat incoherent alerts.
It isn’t yet clear exactly how big of a problem this is, or indeed if Apple will be able to release a software fix that will get things back in check.
That seems the most likely route for Apple to follow here, but it’s still an awkward bug that will leave some concerned about the quality of the batteries in their new accessories.
Apple’s new AirPods Pro 2 earbuds only went on sale on September 23 and feature improved audio, including adaptive Transparency mode capabilities.
