Apple sends update to the AirPods Pro

Just Yesterday, 23rd June 2020, Apple announced a couple of new features to its AirPods pro.

Some of the new features added include the fact that Both the second-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro will get an automatic switching between devices in your home. This will also make it to the Powerbeats, Powerbeats Pro, and Beats Solo Pro.

The headphones will automatically switch audio inputs based on which Apple device you're using, or need to be using. If you're listening to something on your iPhone but start playing a video on your MacBook, the earbuds will automagically switch over. And if then you get a call on your iPhone, the audio will switch to that. It all sounds very neat and seamless, provided, that is, that all of your devices are made by Apple.

The AirPods Pro is also getting a form of 3D sound, which Apple is calling Spatial Audio. This will give you a 3D, surround sound-like experience, and will constantly recalibrate where sounds feel like they're coming from - based on the position of your head relative to whichever device you happen to be using.

So if you tilt your iPad or your head, the earbuds will know and adjust things so that the sound always appears to come from the direction it was intended to. This should work best with movies, of course, and may sound like a gimmick - but actually, a lot depends on implementation. If done right, it could be amazing, otherwise, just a nice thing to have... This is beautiful!!!

However, Today Apple has started sending a firmware update to its AirPods pro that is supposed to take them from version 2D15 to 2D17

The updates should be installed automatically while the headphones are connected to an iOS device, but you can manually trigger the updates, maybe by putting the AirPods in the case, then connect the case to a power source, pair to an iPhone or iPad, then wait, it should trigger the update after a while.

If you go through the procedure, let us know in the comments if there's anything new in the experience of using them. To check which firmware version they're currently on, while they're connected to your iOS device, go to Settings > General > About > AirPods.
