I hope it fixes the inconsistent latency issues with it when using it to control the volume of stereo paired HomePods.

does it warns you now that the battery is low? Or it still dies every other day?
If yours die every other day, there's something wrong with it. I'm amazed with how seldom I need to charge it, and I use it daily.

This remote is still bad. I much preferred the other one. I thought this would work better but using it for a year I've noticed a lot of situation where its just not well thought out.
Not to mentioned that the "click" feel seems off a bit.
Really? Personally I think it's waaay better than the old one, in every aspect.

I do hope that this firmware addresses the bug with volume control of paired soundbars where volume increases/decreases multiple steps with a single click.
