Apple today released new firmware 5B59 for the original AirPods 2, AirPods 3, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max, compared to firmware 5B58 released in November.
Apple doesn’t provide immediately available release notes about what’s included in updated firmware updates for AirPods, but the company does maintain a support document with release information.
There is no standard way to upgrade the AirPods, but the firmware is installed over the air while the AirPods are connected to the iOS device. Placing the AirPods in the case, connecting the AirPods to a power source, and then pairing the AirPods to your iPhone or iPad should force the update after a short period of time.
You can check the “AirPods” or “AirPods Pro” firmware by following these steps:
- Connect your AirPods or AirPods Pro to your iOS device.
- Open the Settings app.
- Click General.
- Click on about.
- Click on “AirPods”.
- Look at the number next to “Firmware Version”.
