Once you have located your device’s serial number, it’s important to enter it into Apple’s “Check Coverage” website to verify its authenticity. The website will tell you if the AirPods are registered in Apple’s system, which all real AirPods must be in order to be considered genuine. Using this website is one of the best ways to determine if your purchase was legitimate or not.

We hope this article has helped clarify how to find your device’s serial number and check its authenticity. Knowing this information can help protect you from fraudulent purchases and give you peace of mind that your money was well-spent on an authentic product!

Can Apple Detect Stolen AirPods Using Serial Numbers?

No, Apple cannot determine if AirPods have been stolen by their serial number. Serial numbers are used to identify individual products and can be used to check a device’s warranty status or repair history. However, they are not tied to any specific owner, so Apple cannot tell who purchased the product or if it has been stolen. If you suspect that your AirPods may have been stolen, you should contact local law enforcement and file a report.

Do AirPods Have Serial Numbers?

Yes, AirPods (2nd and 3rd generation) and AirPods Pro (1st and 2nd generation) each have their own serial numbers printed on the AirPod itself. You can find the serial number printed on the case lid, which is the primary serial number for service.

Understanding the Meaning of AirPods Serial Numbers

A serial number is a unique identification code assigned to every AirPods product that Apple produces. It allows Apple to keep track of the device in case it ever needs to be serviced or recalled, as well as to help verify the authenticity of the product. Serial numbers are printed on the box the AirPods came in, as well as on the back of the case itself and on each individual earbud.


In conclusion, the serial number for AirPods Max is A2096 and can be found on the underside of each AirPod or underneath the left cushion. It is important to double-check the serial number by entering it into Apple’s “Check Coverage” website to ensure that your AirPods are authentic and registered in Apple’s system. This process can help you make sure that you have purchased a genuine AirPods Max product.
