The first software update for the Apple AirPods Pro 2 TWS earbuds, which were introduced earlier this month and put on sale yesterday, has been released.
Although the release notes for the updated firmware, which has the version number 5A377, claim that it contains bug fixes and “other enhancements,” we are unsure of which issues this update solves and what else is enhanced.
Firmware updates on the AirPods are usually delivered when they are charging and in the Bluetooth range of your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and there’s no standard way to install the updates manually, so you’ll have to wait till the update arrives on your earphones.
However, if you don’t know what firmware your AirPods have, make sure your iPhone/iPad is running the latest OS version, open the Settings app, and head to Bluetooth > AirPods. Now tap on the “More Info” button denoted by “i” and scroll down to the “About” section to find the firmware version.
Option-click the Apple menu’s Apple logo on a Mac and select “System Information.” Look under your AirPods for the firmware version by clicking “Bluetooth” right now.
