Apple today rolled out a new firmware update for the second-generation AirPods Pro, marking the second update the headphones have received since their launch in the fall.


The existing 5A377 firmware has been updated to version 5B58.

There’s no word on what features might be included in the updated firmware, so we don’t know what’s new. Apple also doesn’t provide AirPods software upgrade instructions, but firmware is usually installed over-the-air when the ‌‌AirPods‌‌ are connected to an iOS device. Put the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ into the case, connect the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ to a power source, and then pair the ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌ to an iOS device.

You can check the firmware of your ‌‌‌AirPods‌‌ or ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌AirPods Pro‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ by following these steps:

  • Connect your ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌AirPods Pro‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ to your iOS device.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap About.
  • Tap ‌‌‌‌‌AirPods‌‌‌‌‌.
  • Look at the number next to “Firmware Version”.

If we find any features in the firmware update, we’ll update this article with details, but the software likely only offers minor bug fixes.
