Apple has updated the ‘firmware’ of the audio devices Airpods and Beats with W1 or H1 processors, which in the case of wireless earbuds add new functions of the Search application.
The technology company has distributed the ‘firmware’ versions 4A400 for AirPods Pro, AirPods Max and 2nd generation AirPods models, and 4A394 for the Beats Solo Pro, Powerbeats 4 and Powerbeats Pro.
In the case of Airpods, these headphones will be updated to the new version of the ‘firmware’ when connected to the mobile phone via Bluetooth, as explained from 9to5Mac. From the settings from the list of Bluetooth devices you can check the installed version.
The update includes new Search features for AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. If they are lost, the user can resort to searching nearby to locate them, although the location it shows is more approximate than in the case of AirTags, mainly due to the processor that incorporates this last element, U1, which enables a more precise location.
