Apple today released a new 3.7.2 firmware update for its AirPods, likely introducing bug fixes and performance improvements to the wireless earbuds.
AirPod firmware updates are installed automatically when the AirPods are connected to the iPhone, so AirPods users should begin seeing the new firmware soon as the update rolls out to everyone.
AirPods owners can check the version number in the Settings app by going to General --> About --> AirPods while the AirPods are connected to the iPhone.
Apple did not provide release notes with the firmware update, so it is not known what problems the new software might address.
Though AirPods were first released back in December of 2016, they continue to be in short supply. Shipping times for the AirPods are still at six weeks from the online Apple Store.

* Place the AirPods in its charging case.
* The case must be plugged into a charger. (This is not required, but suggested.)
* The case must be linked to an iPhone nearby and connected to Wi-Fi.
To check if you have the latest installed firmware, follow these steps:
* Open the Settings app on your phone.
* In the Settings app, go to General > About > AirPods. (Note: AirPods will only display in About when connected to your iPhone).
* From there, look for "Firmware Version" and check the number to see if you have the latest version (which is 3.5.1, as of 1 February 2017).
(Just a little joke)
I use them way more then regular people. I'm renting a house where I don't have a dedicated sound system. I do everything related to sound with these babies. Taking phone calls, listening to stuff all day at work, consuming media at home, movies, running all of them.
