Apple today rolled out the new 5B59 firmware for the AirPods 2, AirPods 3, the original AirPods Pro, ‌AirPods Proh 2‌, and the AirPods Max, which is an upgrade over the 5B58 firmware released in November.

AirPods 3 New Firmware Feature
Apple doesn’t offer immediately available release notes on what’s included in the refreshed firmware update for AirPods, but the company maintains a support document with release information.

There’s no standard way to upgrade the AirPods software, but firmware is installed over-the-air while the AirPods are connected to an iOS device. Placing the AirPods in the case, connecting the AirPods to a power source, and then pairing the AirPods with the iPhone or iPad should force the update after a short period of time.

You can check your AirPods or AirPods Pro firmware by following these steps:

  • Connect your AirPods or AirPods Pro to your iOS device.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap About.
  • Tap on AirPods.
  • Look at the number next to “Firmware Version”.

We’ll update this article if we find notable changes after firmware updates are installed, but the software is likely to include performance improvements and bug fixes.
