A new firmware update has gone live for Apple AirPod Pro users, which brings the headphones up to version 2D15. While it remains to be seen exactly what this one is going to fix, some suspect that it will deal with fixing the mess that Apple caused with the 2C54 update a few months back. It may not be much longer that users have to deal with a botched noise cancellation feature.
In order to download this latest update, all you have to do is connect to an iOS device and the firmware update will start automatically. You can’t force the update to start on its own, unfortunately, but you can check to see if you have the latest version by doing the following:
- Connect AirPods Pro to your iPhone or iPad
- Go to Settings
- Go through General > About > AirPods Pro
- Next to Firmware Version is the latest version of the software you have on your AirPods Pro.
As alluded to previously, the 2C54 update that launched at the beginning of this year brought some big issues to the AirPods Pro experience. Noise cancelling (a major feature of the device) was broken, which was a result of more bass and frequency response added with the update. It is hoped that the problem will be fixed for all users with this new update, but we’re going to have to see what users report over the next few days.
