Apple has recently released a new firmware upgrade, 5B58, for its second-generation AirPods 2, Airpods 3, Airpods Pro and Pro Max. It is an update from its previous version, 4E71, which was released in May 2022. As for now, the company has not shared much information or notes on this latest firmware upgrade.

However, in its recent announcement, the company gave a surety of bug fixes and performance improvements with this latest update. So it is expected by people that the company must resolve the random volume changes and audio shift experiences in this update.

At the same time, the company has released the latest firmware update, 2.0.24, for its AirTags, featuring the build number 2A24e. Until now, the firmware version 1.0.301 was available, featuring the build number 1A301, released on April 28, 2022, to fix the unwanted tracking sound so people can easily locate the unknown AirTags.

Like its Airpods firmware update, the company hasn’t shared much information related to its AirTags update, but soon it will be released for all users.

Apple users can check the firmware version of their AirTags in the “Find My Application” on their phones. Under the “Items” tab of the app’s bottom navigation bar, they can access the AirTag and check its firmware version and serial number by tapping on its name.

However, users can’t force an AirTag update on their devices. They have to ensure that the AirTag is in range of the iPhone so the update can start automatically.

Similarly, users can also check the Airpod firmware version and install the latest update. To check the firmware version, they must first connect their AirPods to iPhone or iPad and then access “Settings”. Under the General Settings, Go to the “About” section, look for Airpod and tap on its name to know its current firmware version by checking the serial number.

After checking the current firmware version of their Airpods, users can upgrade it to the latest by following these simple steps:
  • Place the AirPods back into their case and connect them to the power source for charging.
  • Pair them with your iPhone or iPad.
  • Once they are connected or in the range, the firmware will automatically install and update to the latest version after a while.

Users can follow the method mentioned above to check whether it got updated to the latest version.
