All high-quality headphones from Apple are provided with an individual serial number. This will tell you whether they are original devices or AirPods Pro fake headphones. You'll also need to check the Apple serial number to determine if the manufacturer's warranty is still valid.
Today we don't just want to give you instructions on how to enter the Apple serial number. We also tell you how to find the AirPod Pro serial number to check it afterwards.
Why is it important to verify an Apple serial number?
Unfortunately, there are always fake headphones on the market. To rule out that you have bought counterfeit AirPods Pro headphones, you can use the serial number to find out whether they are really original. Only in very rare cases are plagiarisms provided with a real, but stolen, original serial number.
The second major reason to enter an Apple serial number is to check warranty status. Apple enables an online query for its devices, which you can use to check whether the device is still within the manufacturer's warranty, which is two years in Germany. In order for you to be able to check the warranty status or whether the AirPods Pro are fake, you must first find out the serial number. You have several options for doing this.
Check AirPod serial number on MacBook or laptop
An easy way to determine the correct serial number is to query it through the MacBook. We explain step by step how to do this. First you have to open the menu. There you then select the menu item "System settings".
You must now select your AirPods Pro in the menu overview on the left to check the serial number. Once you have clicked on your headphones, all you have to do is click on the "Serial number" menu item so that it is displayed to you.
Check AirPod serial number on iPhone or iPad
Another way to find out the unique device number so you can check your AirPods Pro serial number is to use your iPhone or iPad. We have also written a short and concise guide for you.
- Open the settings on your device.
- Next click on the Bluetooth menu.
- You will find your AirPods there under the device name you assigned. Next to the name is a small "i" that you need to tap.
- You will now see the serial number of your AirPods Pro. Incidentally, the headphones do not have to be connected to the playback device to go this route.
Find the printed serial number
If you still have the original packaging of your headphones, you will find the serial number printed on it as well. If you bought the devices directly from Apple, the serial number is also printed on the invoice. Of course, this also applies to electronic invoices that you have received by e-mail.
Identify the charging case
You will also find the serial number in the charging case that comes with every bundle. It is located on the underside of the lid and is therefore easy to find. The AirPods Max are an exception. On this version, the important number is located under the left ear pad, which you must carefully remove to access the serial number.
Check authenticity of AirPods
Apple offers you a free service to verify the authenticity of your headphones. All you need is the individual device number. Go directly to the manufacturer website to check the AirPods Pro serial number.
If it is an AirPods Pro fake, it will be displayed there directly. This way you can find out with absolute certainty whether you are holding original AirPods in your hands.
Check if there is still a guarantee
You can also clarify the question of the warranty for your headphones directly with Apple. You will also need to visit the website and check the AirPods Pro serial number. All you have to do is enter the Apple serial number and confirm that you are not a bot.
If your headphones are still under warranty, this will be displayed directly on the site. You may be required to sign in with your Apple ID to verify the date of purchase. Shouldn't have happened by now anyway.
Also pay attention to original parts when replacing
If you only need a single pair of headphones as a replacement because you have lost a or it is defective, then make sure that you get an original AirPod. Since the manufacturer itself does not offer any individual components of the headphones, there are a few black sheep on the market.
You can carry out the test as described above. It is obsolete if you order your spare parts from a reliable supplier like OneEarPod. With us you only get original spare parts and therefore the usual manufacturer's guarantee. This is possible because we purchase complete bundles ourselves and then break them down into their individual components.
Save money and conserve resources
You can save a lot of money by buying individual components of a set. And that's not all. At the same time, you also help to avoid unnecessary waste because you only buy the spare part that you really need. Because fewer headphones are produced, fewer raw materials have to be used.
That convinced us to start our company and fill the gap for Apple AirPods spare parts. Our offer does not only refer to the AirPods Pro. We also offer individual headphones and the charging case as spare parts for Apple AirPods of the second and third generation.
Conclusion - Checking the serial number is very simple
Whenever you are not sure whether you have original headphones in front of you, you can check the AirPod Pro serial number with little effort.
