Apple on Tuesday is rolling out a new firmware version for headphones powered by the W1 or H1 chip which includes AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, AirPods (second-generation), Beats Solo Pro, Powerbeats 4, and Powerbeats Pro.
Unfortunately, there are no release notes for AirPods or Beats updates. This means we’ll have to wait until the update is fully rolled out to get a grasp on what’s new. Apple does not have a very robust update mechanism in place for AirPods software, which often leaves users in the dark about changes.
UPDATE: 2:02pm PDT / 5:02pm EDT: Apple’s firmware update delivers enhanced support for the Find My app and Find My search network to AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, AirPods (second-generation), Beats Solo Pro, Powerbeats 4, and Powerbeats Pro.
