The AirPods Max are Apple's most exclusive on-ear headphones and are priced at 579 euros. Since its launch in December 2020 we have not yet seen any new generation although it is speculated that throughout 2024 we will see the AirPods Max 2. Until that time arrives, Apple has released a new firmware update for these AirPods Maxthe version 6A324. Until now we have never been able to find out what new features these firmware updates incorporate, but the recommendation is to keep our devices updated.

6A324, the new version of the AirPods Max firmware

Apple has published a new version of the AirPods Max firmware. In September of last year the version that was launched was the 6A300 and The new version has the code 6A324. This is important because it allows us to differentiate if our headphones have been updated or if, on the contrary, they are still in the version prior to today's launch.
