Apple releases a firmware update for the AirPods Pro

It could include a hotfix for a bug or connectivity enhancement

AirPods Pro currently sell for Rs 24,900 in India

Apple has quietly sent out a firmware update for its recently launched AirPods Pro wireless earbuds. This update, being the very first for the pair since the late October launch, could include either a hotfix for a bug the company has detected or an enhancement in wireless connectivity. According to MacRumors, the firmware update is labelled ‘2B588’ and will automatically be installed to replace the release version ‘2B584’ when the AirPods Pro are connected to an iOS device.

To see if your pair of AirPods Pro has received the firmware update, open the iOS device that is paired to the earbuds and visit Settings > General > About. Scroll down the list and tap ‘AirPods Pro’. If you see ‘2B588’ listed under Firmware Version, it means you’re good to go. If you’re still on the older version, wait for a few days to receive it as Apple may not have sent the update out to all regions yet. Sadly, there’s no way to trigger the update process manually.

Apple launched the AirPods Pro late last month at a price of Rs 24,900. They’re more sophisticated and expensive than the second-generation AirPods the Cupertino-based company launched some eight months ago. The AirPods Pro are the first earbuds from Apple to feature an active noise cancellation feature. Available only in a white colour at the moment, they’re designed to sit deeper in the user’s ears (like typical in-ear headphones do) than the previous models.

According to Apple, the AirPods Pro come with soft, flexible silicone ear tips in three different sizes (small, medium, large). What’s more, the earbuds are IPX4-rated for sweat- and water-resistance. The AirPods Pro are powered by the same 10-core Apple H1 chip that does duty on the AirPods 2 (for both sound and Siri). The pair also comes with features such as Adaptive EQ (for automatically tuned audio enhancement) and Transparency mode (for easy conversation with people around the user when the active noise cancellation feature is enabled).
