Apple hasn’t provided information about what’s included in updated firmware updates for AirPods‌, so we don’t know what improvements or bug fixes the new firmware brings.

There is no standard way to upgrade the ‌AirPods‌ software, but the firmware is generally installed wirelessly while the ‌AirPods‌ are connected to an iOS device. If you put the ‌AirPods‌ in the case, connecting the ‌AirPods‌ to a power source, then pairing an iPhone time to a power source, then pairing a period of ‌A.

You can check your AirPods or AirPods Pro firmware by following these steps:

  • Connect your AirPods or AirPods Pro to your iOS device.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap About.
  • Tap AirPods.
  • Look at the number next to “Firmware Version”.

If we learn of any notable changes in the firmware update, we’ll share details, but the software is likely to offer performance improvements and minor bug fixes.
