Do All AirPods Have the Same Serial Number?

Share This:

AirPods are one of the most popular wireless earbuds on the market, and for good reason. They offer great sound quality, a comfortable fit, and many of the features you’d expect from Apple products. But one thing that sets AirPods apart from other earbuds is their unique serial number. So do all AirPods have the same serial number?

The short answer is no: each and every pair of AirPods has a unique serial number. This serial number is usally located inside the charging case or on the bottom of the left pod. It’s a 16-digit alphanumeric code that can be used to identify your specific set of AirPods if they are ever lost or stolen.

But why does each pair need a unique serial number? The answer is simple: it allows Apple to keep track of your device and provide you with better customer service if you ever need it. For example, if you ever need to get your AirPods repaired or replaced, you can use the serial number to prove that they are yours and not someone else’s. It also ensures that your AirPods don’t get mixed up with someone else’s and prevents them from being counterfeited or stolen.

So whie all AirPods have unique serial numbers, they are not all created equal. Some may have longer numbers than others, but they all serve the same purpose: to uniquely identify your particular pair of AirPods so that Apple can better serve you as a customer if needed. So when shopping for your next pair of wireless earbuds, make sure to check for the serial number – it could come in handy in the future!

Verifying the Authenticity of an AirPod Serial Number

To tell if your AirPods serial number is real, you can use Apple’s “Check Coverage” website. Simply enter the serial number of your AirPods and the website will tell you if they are registered in Apple’s system. Real AirPods should be registered on this website, so if your AirPods are not listed, they may be fake. Additionally, you can compare the serial number to one listed on the Apple website or included with your product packaging to make sure it matches up. If the serial number does not match or is not listed, it is likey that your AirPods are not authentic.

Do Fake AirPods Have Serial Numbers?

Fake AirPods may have serial numbers, but they will not be genuine Apple serial numbers. Counterfeiters often steal serial numbers from legitimate Apple products and use them on their knockoff AirPods. If you purchase a pair of AirPods and find that it has a suspiciously low price or no original packaging, it is likely to be a counterfeit product. To make sure your AirPods are genuine, check the serial number on Apple’s website to see if it matches the one printed on the box or device itself. If it does not match, then the AirPods are likely fake.

Replacing AirPods Without Serial Number

No, unfortunately you cannot replace AirPods without a serial number. The serial number is a unique identifier that is used to identify each pair of AirPods and is required to purchase replacement parts or get any other kind of service from Apple. If you do not have the serial number, Apple cannot verify that the AirPods are yous and will not be able to replace them. Therefore, it is important to save the box or take a screenshot of your AirPods serial number as soon as you receive them so you can use it in the future if needed.

Verifying the Authenticity of AirPods Pro Using Serial Number

To check if your AirPods Pro is original by serial number, you first need to look up the serial number. To do this, make sure your AirPods are connected to your iPhone or iPad and then go to Settings > Bluetooth. Find your AirPods in the list (for example, “John’s AirPods Pro”) and tap the More Info button next to them. The serial number should be listed there.

Once you have the serial number, you can go to Apple’s support website and enter it into the text field provided. This will then tell you if your AirPods Pro is an original Apple product or not. If it is not an original Apple product, then it could be a counterfeit or imitation of an Apple product.


In conclusion, AirPods are a popular choice for their wireless and convenient design. They provide good sound quality and comfort as well as being easily portable. Unfortunately, there is a risk of buying counterfeit AirPods which lack Apple’s quality standards or have stolen serial numbers. To ensure you are purchasing authentic AirPods, use the “Check Coverage” website to verify the serial number. This will help guarantee that you are receiving a genuine product.
