Apple updates the AirPods firmware to version 3.7.2: How to install the update

AirPods, like all other Apple devices, are updated periodically. Thanks to the W1 chip these headphones constantly improve their connection, their wireless functions and their autonomy with simple software updates.


As indicated by the German media Macerkop, Apple recently updated the AirPods to version 3.7.2

This update may arrive to solve some problems of connectivity of the headphones through Bluetooth. As has been indicated several times, the AirPods lose the connection with the iPhone during the phone calls.

Updating AirPods

To install the new firmware in the AirPods a few simple steps must be followed:

  • Place both earphones in the charging case.
  • Close the case and connect it to a charger or USB port.
  • Make sure the iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network so that the firmware is downloaded and installed.

The iPhone with which the AirPods are paired, obviously, should be close to the headphones. Note that upgrading your AirPods may take a few minutes to complete. On the other hand, during the upgrade process, you can not use the AirPods or remove them from the case.

If you want to find out the firmware version of your AirPod you should go to Settings > General > About > AirPods on the iPhone. In this section, you can check the latest version installed on the headset.

The current version is 3.7.2 as we discussed, and Apple originally launched the AirPods with version 3.3.1
