Apple has released numerous firmware updates for its various AirPods and Beats earbuds. As well as updating headphones too, Apple has issued a new update for the AirTags, which have now reached firmware version 2.0.24.

Apple has released new firmware revisions for its audio products, including those sold under the Beats name. Specifically, Apple has updated the Beats Studio Buds, as well as the Powerbeats Pro and the Beats Fit Pro. Unfortunately, Apple does not share changelogs with any updates that it releases for its audio products but provides release notes in a support document.

Still, it has been determined that you can customise the button combination for cancelling a phone call on the Beats Studio Buds. Conversely, the Powerbeats Pro and the Beats Fit Pro have only received nondescript bug fixes. Similarly, it seems that Apple has applied merely bug fixes to AirTags, which have reached firmware version 2.0.24.

Additionally, Apple has not added any features to the AirPods 2, AirPods 3, the AirPods Pro, AirPods Pro 2 or the AirPods Max. For reference, all AirPods products are on firmware version 5B58, other than the original AirPods. According to Pocket-lint, this month's AirPods Pro 2 update allows the earbuds to stay connected to Pixel smartphones without constantly dropping connection. Please note that you must update AirPods by connecting them to an iPhone, iPad or a Mac. Currently, it is impossible to update any AirPods manually or via devices not within Apple's ecosystem.
