Apple released new firmware for the AirPods Pro and second-generation AirPods on Wednesday, with build number 3E751 now available to download and install.
The update replaces the previously available firmware, with build number 3A283 for both models. Apple didn’t provide any details for the update but it is said to believe that it addresses an issue with the automatic device switching feature and adds compatibility with the new 24-inch iMac and the new iPad Pros. This marks the sixth firmware update Apple has issued for the AirPods Pro since launch.
The new firmware is installed automatically for users, with no user control to manually force an update to take place nor ignore the update. The AirPods or AirPods Pro updates itself when they are in the charging case and charging and connected to a nearby iOS device.
AirPods users can check the current firmware for their audio accessories within the Settings app by selecting General > About > AirPods.
