AirPods Pro get a new firmware update

Before the end of October, Apple officially announced its newest member of the truly wireless headphones family, the AirPods Pro. And now the in-ear headphones have a firmware update.

Apple on Thursday officially released a new firmware update for the AirPods Pro. This brings the firmware version number up from 2B584 to 2B588. The new firmware will automatically install for the AirPods Pro when you connect them next to your iPad or iPhone. The update is free.

As far as what the new firmware does for the AirPods Pro, that’s unknown at this time. It’s possible that it may improve overall connectivity. But it’s obviously meant to fix, improve, or otherwise patch something, so if you have the new AirPods Pro make sure to connect your truly wireless headphones to your device soon.

This is an over-the-air update, however, so it’s possible it may take some time before the new software is available for all AirPods Pro out there in the wild. If you want to check your firmware version you can do so by opening the Settings app –> General –> About –> AirPods Pro –> and the firmware version will be present there.
