AirPods 2

This tweak enables Apple’s native pairing UI for the new AirPods on pre-iOS 12.2 devices

If you’re trying to use a pair of second-generation AirPods with an iOS handset running any firmware below iOS 12.2, then you’re likely all too familiar with the ‘limited’ functionality that ensues. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way, especially for jailbreakers.

AirPort is a newly-released jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Boo that makes second-generation AirPods behave more like the original AirPods on pre-iOS 12.2 firmware. More specifically, it ensures that the beautiful pairing UI appears when you open your AirPods in the proximity of your handset and displays the proper AirPods-style glyphs in the Battery widget on the Today page.
