Apple has released a new firmware update for the full range of wireless headphones thus reaching the new version 4e71.

If you have some AirPods, you have a new update available to update them. Specifically, Apple has released a new version of firmware for AirPods 2 and 3, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max, leaving out of it only the first generation AirPods, which have not been on sale for a long time. The new firmware is named 4e71, and it will be automatically installed on your headphones. Apple does not usually give details about the update of its headphones, and this time is not an exception to the norm, so at this time we do not know any of the news that comes with this update.

How to know the firmware version that your AirPods have? It’s easy to know, you just have to connect the AirPods, whatever the model, to your iPhone or iPad, and within Settings, in the General section and within the Information submenu, you can check the installed firmware version. It is essential that the AirPods are connected by Bluetooth, otherwise that menu item will not appear on the screen.

How to form the update of the AirPods? There is no way to launch the update manually, so you will have to wait for the new firmware to download to the headset and install. The only way to speed up the process is to place the AirPods in their case, put them on charge and open the case to connect to your iPhone or iPad, and this way it seems that the download of the update is faster.
