AirPods Max, AirPods, and AirPods Pro get new firmware update

Apple has released new firmware updates for the AirPods Max, AirPods Pro and regular AirPods.

Firmware version 6 adds AirPods Pro 2 features, improved switching, and compatibility with the upcoming iOS 17. Build number 6A301 applies to the AirPods Pro 2 and includes conversation detection and adaptive audio when paired with an iOS 17 device. Limited to build number 6A300, AirPods Max, AirPods 3, AirPods 2, and AirPods Pro feature auto-switching improvements and the ability to unmute and mute calls.


Release notes are published and can be viewed on the official Apple website and on connected devices. AirPods users can try to force the firmware update by connecting their earbuds to an iOS device and then going to the Settings, General, and About page. It is recommended to connect both devices to a charger or have enough battery to complete the process. For AirPods, you may find the firmware version under “Bluetooth” and then under “Information.”
