Apple today released a new firmware update for the AirPods Pro, upgrading the previous firmware, version 2C54 or 2B588, to the new firmware, 2D15.


There is no word on what's new in the refreshed firmware at this time, though there have been some complaints from AirPods Pro users about Active Noise Cancellation issues with the prior firmware.

There's no clear cut way to upgrade the firmware of the AirPods Pro, with the new firmware 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 iPhone or an iPad should force the update after a short period of time.

Check your AirPods Pro firmware by following these steps:
  1. Make sure the ?AirPods? are connected to your iOS device.
  2. Open the Settings app.
  3. Tap General.
  4. Tap About.
  5. Tap ?AirPods?.
  6. Look at the number next to "Firmware Version."
Apple in December released the 2C54 firmware update, but later pulled it, so some people who updated have the 2C54 firmware while others are still on 2B588.

AirPods Pro firmware updates often include performance improvements, bug fixes, and feature tweaks, but we may not find out what's new as Apple does not provide any kind of release notes for ?AirPods updates. There is no update for the standard AirPods at this time.

I'm honestly surprised that they can do this. Given their reluctance in the past, I had assumed there was some update related bug in the initial firmware.

Fingers crossed it addresses the low volume issue when connected to devices like AirFly Pro. Makes a transatlantic flight miserable the way it is now!

I do hope that this fixes my pairing issues since ver 2B588 every time I'm into a good set of music either ear will stop connecting and I go back through ear fittest and it fails. When got these at launch did not have any issues until firmware... o_Oo_O
