According to many users’ reports online, the Apple AirPods Pro 2 is currently down with a bug. The report shows that the bug alerts users to “replace” the batteries of their headphones as soon as possible. The reminder comes when you use the phone app to check any detail of the watch. The bug appears to trigger battery replacement notifications from the Find My app on nearby devices. However, this only happens when the AirPods Pro earphones or MagSafe charging case’s battery is low.

AirPods Pro 2 bug battery replacement
Recall that the second-generation AirPods Pro uses the U1 chip for precise search. It also has the enhanced Find My functionality as well as transmits its battery level information at any time. There are speculations that the reminder notification may have links to these new features.
The notification urges users to “replace the battery as soon as possible,” However, we know that there is no need to replace the AirPods battery. In fact, it can not be replaced. If the battery is low, the user only needs to charge the battery. Users who receive the notification may not even immediately think it’s talking about their AirPods Pro. This is because the notification refers to the headset as an “Item”. It further says to “replace the battery on left soon”. The same thing goes for the “right” and “case”.
This notification seems to be similar to the one AirTag uses when the CR2032 battery is running out and needs to be replaced, so the system seems to confuse the two products. At the moment, we can not recall telling how widespread the issue is. However, there is no official response from Apple at the moment regarding the issue. Nevertheless, the issue does not affect the workability of the device. The issue will likely be resolved with a software update in due course.
