Apple sent out a new beta edition of the firmware for the AirPods, and this is merely the second time that pre-release software has been delivered for the headphones. According to the official explanation, the firmware concentrates on improving voluntary switching between appliances, various bug fixes, and resilience.
The new firmware has an edition number of 5.0 and a build number of 5A5282d and is presently only accessible as a developer beta. According to the discharge notes, the new firmware aims to improve AirPods -related features in iOS and macOS, facilitating Apple to troubleshoot problems more quickly.
Apple Developer Program partners have access to the beta firmware on the official website, with a public beta version planned for July. It appears that the beta firmware will not be accessible for first-generation AirPods.
While pairing AirPods with the iPhone, connect the iPhone to the Mac using a Lightning cable, drive Xcode 14 beta on the Mac, then go to Settings and select Developer, then select the Pre-Release Beta Firmware in the AirPods Test category.
According to Apple, it can consume nearly 24 hours to obtain and install beta firmware on AirPods. Thereupon installation, the beta firmware in the headphones will serve until an updated edition of the software is disclosed, which will appear at the official launch. Quick updates will then be initiated automatically when attached to the iPhone.
