The new version is labeled 2D15 and it comes as an upgrade for the most recent editions 2C54 or 2B588. The previous AirPods Pro software update was rolled out in December 2019, but was later pulled without an explanation. This is why some users might currently run 2C54 firmware, while others the original 2B588. Continue reading and we’ll show you how to check the current firmware version of your AirPods Pro!
The Cupertino-based tech giant hasn’t provided any details about the new firmware and we can only guess that it comes to fix a bug related to the Active Noise Cancellation feature. This problem has been reported in complaints by several users. The AirPods firmware updates usually come with performance improvements, bug fixes and / or feature fine tunes. However, Apple doesn’t provide any release notes for these updates and we’ll have to test the AirPods for a longer time and rely on your feedback to identify the changes.
How To Upgrade The Firmware Of Your AirPods Pro
Unlike the iPhone or the Apple Watch there is no action required from you in order to upgrade the firmware version of your AirPods Pro. As long as you use the gadget normally, the AirPods will automatically install the new firmware, over-the-air, when the following criteria are met:
– AirPods have to be connected to an iOS or iPadOS device.
-> AirPods have to be placed in their case,
-> The case has to be connected to a power source,
-> AirPods should be paired to an iPhone or iPad. After you complete these steps the AirPods should begin updating to the new firmware in a couple of minutes.
Fact: This firmware update is only available for the AirPods Pro model. The standard AirPods aren’t included in this batch but we will update you as soon as this changes.

1. Connect your AirPods to your iOS or iPadOs device.
