They had been talking about a renovation of the original HomePod, its launch was expected along with the new Macs with the M2 processor, but we had to wait one more day for Apple to launch the expected update. An update that improves its performance and brings new support for Matter, the new universal home automation protocol. But Apple also brought improvements for its AirPods… And it is that although there has not been a renewal Apple just updated the firmware of AirPods, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. Keep reading that we tell you the details of this update.

And it is that now with iOS 16 we can see what the new firmware brings us, we already tell you that it is nothing special, right? The new version of the AirPod range is the 5B59the previous one was the 5B58, and in this case they tell us about unknown bug fixes and performance improvements. As we tell you, nothing special, but we hope that Apple has solved the problems that we recently found in our AirPods. I personally stopped seeing the charge level of the case from time to time… Keep in mind that the Original AirPods and the second generation AirPods Pro, the last ones released by Apple, have not been updated to this latest version 5B59.
