Apple releases new firmware for all AirPods

We are reaching a point where it already “smells” like a new operating system. Apple’s event, scheduled for June 6, will bring a lot of news to the most diverse segments of the company’s products. As such, and to keep devices up to date, Apple has been updating the firmware of its gadgets. After the MagSafe battery and AirTags update, news is now available for all AirPods.

According to information from the American giant, there is already a new version of the firmware for the AirPods, version 4E71.


There are some news that rumors say could reach Apple headphones. For example, there is talk that the AirPods Max will be able to support wireless lossless audio, in addition to other features. However, with these software improvements, Apple provides better battery management, also offers features such as constantly improving Find Network location, as well as other new features.

Updates that were released a few hours ago are now available for the AirPods 2, AirPods 3, AirPods Max and AirPods Pro. There is still no information if these updates have also reached Beats. The update comes with version number 4E71, which is an increase from the previous version of 4C165.

Unfortunately, Apple does not provide release notes for AirPods firmware updates. Instead, users have to wait for the update to hit their AirPods before digging through the news.
