Apple today released a new firmware update for the second-generation AirPods Pro. The existing 5A377 firmware has been updated to version 5B58.
Apple did not announce what features or fixes might be included in the new firmware. However, we will announce any new features or fixes in this space if and when we hear about them. It is likely that the update simply includes bug fixes.
There isn’t any way to manually update the firmware of the earbuds, and the new software will be installed over the air while the AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max are connected via Bluetooth to an iOS device.
If you place the AirPods in their case, connect them to a power source, and then pair them to an iPhone or iPad, they should update after a short period of time.
Here’s how to check the firmware version of your AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max earbuds:
- Make sure your Airpods are connected to your iPhone or iPad.
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap “General.”
- Tap “About.”
- Scroll down to “AirPods,” and tap that.
- Read the number next to “Firmware Version.”
