    ok abit of click bait really

    however i lost my charging case and i have been using my sisters charging case they work well and get linked to my phone

    but then i thought does this mean someone can steal my airpods and if lets say they have a charging case it will work with it? if that is the case is that not bad?

    also does this mean someone can use airpods buy new ones swap them and give it back? and apple will not know?

    all in all where is the protection

    Each case has its own serial number which should match the apple receipt. But yes you can swap the airpods and return with the case that matches your original purchase. Or maybe not.

    You can try and find out lol.

    Are you seriously asking for advice on how to commit fraud against Apple?

    Nope im not doing anything like that at all

    It was a genuine question

    E.g what would happen if i robbed a bank

    Etc

    Jus general curiosity

    With iphones they can check serials
    Macbooks serials
    Ipad serials

    Was jus wondering what can they check with airpods thats all
