It's that time again. Apple is releasing another round of somewhat vague AirPods firmware updates. This time the update is expected for AirPods Pro, AirPods 2 and AirPods Max.
Like AirPods 3 earlier in the month, the firmware for AirPods Pro and AirPods 2 is now updated to version 6A321
AirPods firmware release notes usually say the same thing: bug fixes and other improvements. This is exactly what Apple has specified for this firmware version for AirPods 3.
AirPods Max has its own firmware version with build 6A324.
Apple explains how to update AirPods firmware, charging when Wi-Fi connection:
To use your iPhone or iPad to check that your AirPods are up to date, make sure you have the latest version of iOS or iPadOS . Open Settings > Bluetooth, then tap the Info button next to the name of your AirPods. Scroll down to the About section to check your firmware version.
To use your Mac to make sure your AirPods are up to date, make sure you have the latest version of macOS. Press and hold the Option key while choosing Apple menu > System information. Click “Bluetooth”, then find the firmware version for your AirPods. In macOS Ventura or later, you can also select the Apple menu > System Preferences, tap Bluetooth, then tap the Info button next to your AirPods' name.
AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C have a unique feature when paired with Apple Vision Pros: lossless sound reproduction. The Lightning charging version simply won't work (due to actual hardware differences). Apple's first spatial computer is available for pre-order before it goes on sale on February 2nd. No other wireless headphones support Lossless technology.
