The American technology giant Apple introduced a new beta firmware for AirPods 2, AirPods 3, AirPods Pro, AirPods Pro 2 and AirPods Max.
According to GSM Arena, the new update has the version number 5B5040c, but it is not clear what is new with this update as the company did not provide any details about it.
Users can download the new beta firmware from Apple’s developer center and install it on their AirPods by pairing with an iPhone and connecting to a Mac using a Lightning Cable.
Then launch Xcode 14 beta on your Mac, go to Settings > Developer and select the ‘Pre-Release Beta Firmware’ switch under AirPods Testing.
The OTA will be delivered within 24 hours of activating the pre-test option, but remember that your iPhone should be running the latest iOS 16 beta and your Mac should be running the latest macOS Ventura beta.
It is also worth noting that this update is intended for developers and may contain bugs that could disrupt the user experience.
That being said, Apple recently released the first firmware update for the AirPods Pro 2 for those not enrolled in the beta program.
