Apple Updates AirPods Firmware to Version 3A283
Apple released new 3A283 firmware updates for the second-generation AirPods and the AirPods Pro. The second-generation AirPods are being updated from the 2D15 firmware, while the AirPods Pros are being updated from the 2D27 firmware.
Apple does not give any more details on what’s included in the new firmware so we don’t know what’s included, but we are waiting new firmware to support iOS 14 features which are automatic device switching and spatial audio for the AirPods Pro.
There’s no easy way to upgrade the firmware of the AirPods, with the new firmware installed over-the-air while the AirPods are connected to an iOS gadget. Putting the AirPods in the case, connecting the AirPods to power, and then pair AirPods to an iPhone or an iPad should force the update after a brief period of time.
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.”
It has been quite a while since Apple released new firmware updates for the AirPods and the AirPods Pro.
AirPods Pro firmware updates often come with performance improvements, bug fixes, and tweaks.
