Share This:

Apple AirPods are one of the most popular wireless earbuds on the market, and for good reason. They offer excellent sound quality, a sleek design, and convenient features like automatic pairing and voice-activated Siri. But did you know that your AirPods are actually registered with Apple?

It’s true! Every pair of AirPods is registered to a specific Apple ID when they’re purchased new or activated from another device. This registration allows you to get help from Apple Support if you ever have an issue with them or need to replace them. It also lets you use Find My iPhone (or other compatible apps) to locate your lost or stolen AirPods.

So how do you check if your AirPods are registered? It’s simple! Just enter the serial number into Apple’s “Check Coverage” website. This website will tell you whether or not your AirPods are registered in Apple’s system, which all real AirPods should be.

If your AirPods aren’t showing up on the Check Coverage website, it could mean that they were never properly registered or that they were purchased used from a third-party retailer without being re-registered. If this is the case, we recommend contacting the retailer for help and possibly returning them for a refund if necessary.

We hope this article has been helpful in explaining why it’s important to make sure your AirPods are properly registered with Apple so that you can take full advantage of their features and get help from Apple Support if needed. If you have any further questions about registering your AirPods, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
