Unfortunately, Apple does not provide release notes for AirPods firmware updates. Instead, users have to wait for the update to hit their AirPods Pro, then poke around to find out if anything is new. Today’s update comes just over a month after the last firmware update for AirPods Pro.
As of right now, firmware version 4A402 is only rolling out for the AirPods Pro. Apple does not appear to be rolling out updates for AirPods Max, AirPods, or any Beats headphones. That could change, however, and we’ll be sure to update this post if it does.
Apple does not make it easy to manually update your AirPods to new firmware versions. Instead, the company says new firmware versions will install when the AirPods are connected via Bluetooth to your iPhone.
To check your AirPods firmware version:
Again, the newest AirPods Pro firmware version is 4A402. If this is what you see in the Settings app, then it means your AirPods are fully updated. If not, the update should install when connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth.
