Learn how to update your AirPods firmware

From time to time, Apple may update the internal firmware of AirPods, to include some functionality or improve their functioning. And this is what happened this week, with version 6.3.2, which according to some brings improvements to battery life and connection speed, in addition to presenting less noise interference.

But since AirPods do not have any dedicated application for adjustments (as with Watch), how to update the firmware when it occurs?

In this article, we’ll show you how this update works.



The good news is that the update is automatic and most of the time you don’t even realize it happens. It starts when the headphones are charging inside the case and close to the paired iPhone. Everything is done over the Wi-Fi network.

To let you know if your AirPods already have the latest version installed, simply connect the headphones to the iPhone and go to Settings ›General› About on iOS itself. Then just search for the name of your AirPods and access the menu. The latest version (at the time of writing) is 6.3.2. If the same number appears to you, the firmware has already been updated.

If you notice that you have not yet received the update, do the procedure described above: place the headphones to charge inside the case, with the device paired close, so that it can connect to the Wi-Fi network and download the update.
