I've got 2A364, so seems there's been an update in the last month or two.



When your headphones are connected (either hold open the case near the phone or put them on), go to Settings > General > About > [YourName]'s Powerbeats Pro.

Just updated my Powerbeats with the new firmware. 2a364

I didn’t really have any problems with them before will let you know how the new firmware affects the performance after couple of weeks.

It would be good to actually find out what the update did.

Anyone has a link for firmware update notes?

I was just talking with a Consultant on the Apple Support Chat web page. There is a KNOWN Firmware ISSUE with 2A364 whereby the Announce Call volume is reduced so low that it can be inaudible. They are working on a fix which should be released in due course. Don't ask me when that will be, but keep your eyes peeled.

I’m on 2C48. I’m glad to know Apple is making these updates. i Got mine on launch day and they were inconsistent in their connection and waking up. But now they perform rock solid. Which is usually yhe case with Apple Gen 1 products.

Is anyone else having any issues with the Volume Rocker not working after updating to latest firmware?

When you say latest firmware are you referring to 2c48?

Yes. I filed feedback with Apple for it, too, but only because it seems that the only way I can get it addressed otherwise is in store (which isn't happening right now) or if I send them in. But I'd need to initiate that with Apple anyway... Sooo... I tried there.
