AirPods: Installing new Firmware Updates.

On the verge of 2022 Apple has taken their time to release a brand new set of vital system software for all their devices.

For AirPods, a new firmware has been released that will help the device perform better with any compatible device.

So, here’s how you update your AirPods firmware…

The News:

Apple has released a 4A402 firmware update for the AirPods Pro.

This is an upgrade from the 4A400 firmware released in October. Apple also updated the ApplePods 3 firmware from 4B61 to 4B66.

Apple doesn't provide information about the AirPods' latest firmware updates. Thus, we don't have any clue on what bug fixes or improvements the firmware will bring.

Although there is no set method for upgrading the AirPods' software, firmware can be installed over the air while they are connected to an iOS device.

After putting the AirPods into the case, you can connect them to a power source and then pair them with an iPhone or iPad to force an update.

What is Firmware?

Firmware is best thought of as permanent software that is placed on a device.

Yes, the MagSafe Battery Pack, which could be anything from a smartphone to a computer to a video gaming system.

Firmware is seldom deleted or downgraded, as is the case with normal software updates. In most cases, the only option is to replace the present firmware with newly updated firmware. A firmware upgrade is what happens when you do that.

Firmware updates don't usually add any new features to a device. They fix bugs in the hardware layer or allow accessories to be used with new devices.

A wireless headphone, for example, might be updated to make it compatible with the latest smartphones.
