AirPods Pro 2

Last updated

Apple has released new firmware for both versions of AirPods Pro 2.

The update brings the personal audio accessories to build number 6B34, 6.1.34. As usual, Apple doesn't provide release notes, but the updates typically include performance improvements and bug fixes.

Apple's last update for the AirPods Pro 2 was on November 9, marking its third firmware release for the model.

Unlike devices like an iPhone or iPad, you can't manually update the AirPods Pro 2. Instead, the firmware will install itself automatically when the AirPods Pro are placed in the charging case and connected to an iOS device.

AirPods users can check the current firmware for their audio accessories by accessing the Settings app on their iPhone or iPad.

  1. Open the Settings App
  2. Select General
  3. Select About
  4. Select the AirPods you wish to view
  5. A menu will appear showing relevant device information

Update 5:00 p.m. EST: the firmware is available for both AirPods Pro 2 models, but the story originally said it was only the Lightning model,
