The support document states that unverified AirPods can still be connected to an iPhone, but may not work as expected.

Apple’s alert features a prominent “Don’t connect” button, but users can tap the smaller “Connect in Bluetooth settings” link to continue connecting unverified AirPods if they choose. Twitter handle “Tommy Boi” shared a video of the alert in action a few days ago after plugging fake AirPods into his iPhone (NSFW warning: background music in video contains profanity and viewer discretion is advised).

The alert was first discovered in code for the iOS 16 Release Candidate last week.
