The update to the new firmware versions of the AirPods is done automatically when AirPods are charging and connected via Bluetooth to a nearby iPhone, iPad, or Mac. To check that the latest version has been installed, you just have to do the following:

  • Open Settings from your iPhone or iPad with your AirPods connected.
  • See General.
  • Click on Information.
  • Tap on AirPods.
