A device that may seem as simple as headphones, Apple has elevated them to their greatest complexity with the AirPods Max. A host of high-tech components are housed inside, governed by powerful firmware.
Well said software just got a new actualization by the company. Apple has not provided any information about what news can be reported to the user, but if they did post it, it will be for a reason.
Apple has just released a new version (the 3E756) of the internal firmware of AirPods Max. Since the headphone launch last Christmas, this update is already the third.
This past March, Apple released the second update, the 3C39, the current in devices until today.
As usual with Apple, it does not offer information on what’s new that includes firmware updates. Hopefully these are small bug fixes, battery life improvements, or support for the new one. Spatial audio
To the trouble of users, no way to force an update on any of the existing AirPods, nor on the AirTags either. Perhaps this is a question the company should consider.
So, the only thing you can do is leave your iPhone near the AirPods Max while they are connected to a power source and wait.
What you can do (something is something) is check if they’ve been updated, like so:
- From your iPhone connected to AirPos Max, open Settings.
- Open General.
- Open information.
- Tap AirPods.
- Look at the software version.
The one that was in effect until today is version 3C39. The new version is 3E756. If you see that the version hasn’t changed yet, just leave them for a while connected to charger, and wait for them to update.
