AirPods Pro 2 Asking Users To Replace The Battery Soon

The bug in AirPods Pro 2 seems to be originating from the Find My app on devices nearby whenever the MagSafe Charging Case or earbuds battery is low (via MacRumors). Since the second generation of AirPods Pro houses a U1 chip for Precision Finding, it also aids in the transmission of battery levels all the time. Henceforth, it is possible the bug in AirPods Pro 2 is associated with it.

The notification tells the user to replace the battery of the AirPods Pro 2, which is not possible, as revealed in the teardown. The wearable simply needs to be charged, so users must not be alarmed. The notification is pretty similar to the notification for the AirTag when its CR2032 battery is almost depleted. It was also coined by a user on Twitter that the MagSafe Charging Cases use a lot of the AirTags firmware, which is causing similar alerts.
