Apple Releases New AirPods Pro 2 Firmware

Apple today released new firmware update for both the Lightning and USB-C versions of the AirPods Pro 2. The new firmware is version 6B34, up from the 6B32 firmware introduced in November.

Apple does not provide details on what features might be included in the refreshed firmware beyond "bug fixes and other improvements," so it is unclear what's new in the update, but prior software releases have been refining functionality introduced in iOS 17 such as Adaptive Audio.

Apple does not give customers instructions on how to upgrade AirPods software, but firmware is generally installed over-the-air while the ‌‌AirPods‌‌ are connected to an iOS device. Putting the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ in the case, connecting the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ to a power source, and then pairing the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ to an iOS device or Mac should force the update.

You can check your ‌‌‌AirPods‌‌ firmware by following these steps:

  • Connect your ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌AirPods Pro‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ to your iOS device.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap About.
  • Tap ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌.
  • Look at the number next to "Firmware Version."

If we learn more about what's new in the firmware release, we'll update this article.

Usually there are complaints about the update process of the AirPods. Just be happy with the way, Apple does it.

I also own the Sony WF-2000XM5 buds. The update process is a pain in the - you know where.
The app always loses connection, the update process gets interrupted all the time, the app does not know my buds anymore and annoying things like that.

With the AirPods, it just happens. Maybe not right now, but it is done. Every time. Without any interaction.

This is my experience as well. When going from Adaptive to Transparency the difference is pretty stark.
This lady that works out at my gym sings out loud when she has her headphones in, and she sounds like a dying mouse when she sings, adaptive audio does a pretty good job of drowning her out lol.

you would think Apple could come up with a way to install the firmware manually or via an app/mac app vs the mystery that it is.
