How to Update Your AirPodsʼ Firmware 3/13/19, 10(36 AM

Good news: Unlike every other Apple


device in your life, AirPods update
themselves automatically. You won’t
even know it’s happening.

I haven’t checked my AirPods firmware


in the year and a half I’ve owned them.
You can easily find out what version of
AirPods firmware your earphones are
running by opening the iPhone your
pods are paired to, then tapping Settings
> General > About > AirPods with the
charging case open next to your phone.
The latest version is 3.7.2.

But if you learn about a firmware update


and realize that your AirPods aren’t up to
the latest version, just follow these steps
to make sure you get them up to speed:

1. Plug your charging case in.

2. Make sure your AirPods are in


the case.

That’s it.
