Just recently, Apple announced a firmware update that leveled up the AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) (currently 24% off for October Prime Day) experience for iOS 17 and MacOS Sonoma users with much-anticipated capabilities, including Adaptive Audio, Conversation Awareness, and Personalized Volume.
On Wednesday, Apple dropped another AirPods Pro firmware update, and here’s how it will improve your experience even further.
After Apple updated the AirPods Pro firmware to 6A301, which leveled up the AirPods Pro as mentioned above, some bugs ensued, which is typical with a major software update. A prime example is the extreme iPhone 15 overheating users were experiencing due to a bug in iOS 17.
The new firmware, 6A303, will help address the bugs from the previous update for both AirPods Pro (2nd gen) Lightning and USB-C models.
Apple didn’t reveal many specific details about the update, with its release notes saying that version 6A303 includes “Bug fixes and other improvements.”
The firmware updates happen automatically over the air while your AirPods are charging and in Bluetooth range of an Apple device like your iPhone, iPad, or Mac that’s connected to Wi-Fi.
If you want to double-check whether your AirPods have the latest firmware, all you have to do is visit Settings > Bluetooth on your iPhone or iPad that has the most recent iOS and iPadOS, click on the “i” icon next to the name of your AirPods and scroll down to find the firmware version.
