AirPods Pro firmware 2D27 doesn’t come with many details. Apple doesn’t provide an update log, as it’s the case with its other more popular operating systems. We can only speculate that update 2D27 is here to fix the AirPods Pro rattling sound problem and other user reported issues regarding the Active Noise Cancellation feature.
AirPods Pro Firmware 2D27 New Feature
Apple informed us during the WWDC 2020 keynote that the AirPods Pro will receive a new feature in iOS 14. It’s a spatial audio option that brings the surround sound experience to your wireless earbuds. Advanced motion tracking and device location techniques will be used to make the AirPods Pro sound like your own cinema city.
Firmware 2D27 could lay the foundation for this new feature and that’s the farthest that we can go with speculation at this point.
How To Upgrade AirPods Pro To Firmware 2D27
Unlike the Apple Watch the wireless earbuds don’t have a dedicated app on the companion iPhone, that allows you to check for updates and tweak other settings.
This is why the AirPods upgrade to new firmware versions automatically. However, you can follow these steps to rush the update process:
1. Place the AirPods in their case.
2. Connect the case to a power source.
3. Pair your AirPods to your iOS or iPadOS device.
Fact: After you complete these steps the AirPods should begin updating to the new firmware in a couple of minutes.
Important: Firmware update 2D27 is only available for the AirPods Pro!
