Errors can appear with the passage of time and the testing of new operating systems. That is why Apple has great interest in debugging its updates as much as possible in order to avoid the introduction of errors or bugs in the millions of devices that it has sold around the world. A few hours ago a new bug was reported for which users received a notification from the Find My app alerting them to the need to change the battery soon on their AirPods Pro 2 both of the earphones and the charging box. It is likely that in a few days Apple will fix the bug with a firmware update.
“Replace the battery soon”, the new error of the AirPods Pro 2
The new error has been reported through Reddit and several media outlets such as MacRumors have echoed the news. This is a new bug related to the AirPods Pro 2, the new Apple headphones launched on the market just a few weeks ago. this bug alerts the user via the Find My app that the battery in the earbuds and charging case needs to be replaced soon.
The notification reaches any device no matter what it is: iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc. According to experts, this new error would have several aspects. Among them, the arrival of the U1 chip in the AirPods Pro 2 allows battery levels to be constantly transmitted to the Search app, which could give false information at all times.

On the other hand, similarities have been found between this notification and the notification AirTags receive to change the battery. It is possible, and it is one more theory, that the AirTag firmware has also been used to configure the MagSafe battery box which could be causing this interference.
Apple is likely to try to fix the problem in the first place. via an AirPods Pro 2 firmware update. If it persists, we would move to an operating system update that would perhaps be introduced in iOS 16.1 and the rest of the software updates that we are likely to see in the month of October.
