In principle, you don’t have to do anything to install the latest firmware on your AirPods. The AirPods will update automatically when they are in the case and near your iPhone. To ensure that the update is installed, you can place the charging case on the charger. Do you want to check what the latest update is for your AirPods Pro 2? This is how you can see which firmware the earphones are running on:

  1. Open ‘Settings’ on your iPhone or iPad;

  2. Go to ‘Bluetooth’;

  3. Tap the information button behind your AirPods;

  4. Scroll down to ‘About’;

  5. You will then see the most recent update of your AirPods behind ‘Version’.

The last firmware that Apple released is version 6B34. That update for the AirPods Pro 2 appeared in December. Now the first test version of version 6E188 has been released for developers. It is expected that the public update will follow soon, so that your earphones will soon be updated automatically. Do you see version 6E188 in the information for your AirPods?

New functions (still) unclear

So we don’t yet know exactly which new features will come to the earphones. It is expected that Apple will make small improvements, because the AirPods Pro 2 already received a major update this year with iOS 17. Then Apple introduced new features such as call detection, adaptive audio and personalized volume. All these features have already been released, so we will probably only see major changes after iOS 18.
