AirPods Pro 2 owners are in for a new firmware update, according to 9to5Mac. The update comes with the build number 6B32 and the firmware version 6.1.32 and is available for both versions of the AirPods Pro 2 – the ones with the Lightning port on the case and the ones with USB-C.
This latest update follows the release of the previous firmware about a month ago. As usual, Apple has not provided much detail on what exactly the update addresses, but it is likely focused on bug fixes and other improvements.
The firmware update cannot be manually installed. It will automatically be installed when the AirPods are connected via Bluetooth to an iPhone.
To check the firmware version of your AirPods Pro, follow these steps:
– Open the Settings app on your iPhone
– Navigate to the “Bluetooth” menu
– Find your AirPods in the list of devices
– Tap the “i” next to them
– Look at the “Firmware Version” number
Apple has had some mishaps with AirPods’ firmware updates in the past. For instance, in mid-April, Apple released updates for the first, second, and third-generation AirPods, the first and second-gen AirPods Pro, and the AirPods Max, only to pull all of the updates about an hour later due to an internal system mistake. Users experienced issues receiving the update for hours until Apple managed to fix the problem.
In 2020, after a firmware update, some AirPods Pro users reported that the Active Noise Cancellation feature was not working as well as before.
