Apple has released a new firmware update, version 5E133, for its popular AirPods lineup. The update applies to AirPods 2, AirPods 3, AirPods Max, original AirPods Pro, and AirPods Pro 2, replacing the previous firmware updates, 5B58 and 5B59, which were launched in November and January, respectively.
Although Apple has not released any immediate information on the latest update’s content, the company does maintain a support document that provides release information. Apple also did not specify any specific features or bug fixes in the latest firmware update.

If you are interested in checking your AirPods firmware, follow these simple steps. Firstly, connect your AirPods to your iOS device, then open the Settings app. From there, navigate to General, followed by About, and then AirPods. Finally, check the number next to “Firmware Version”.
