Apple continually delivers firmware updates for its AirPods, AirPods 2, and AirPods Pro wireless earphones. Firmware updates can offer improvements to sound quality, longer battery life, bug fixes, or even improve security. The AirPods Pro are the latest model to be released, with firmware version 2B584 installed at launch. How can AirPods Pro owners be sure they're running the most recent firmware?
There are several ways to keep your AirPods clean, but the AirPods Pro also have flexible ear tips that fit inside the ear. With use the ear tips themselves can accumulate dirt or moisture. Follow these steps to clean your AirPods Pro ear tips:
AirPods Pro are the first AirPods to feature a soft, in-ear tip to block outside sound. Ear tips come in three different sizes, for a comfortable, firm fit inside the ear. Much like AirPods themselves, the ear tips can be lost or misplaced easily.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones are great for untethered listening. But many devices have traditional headphone connectors, rendering AirPods, Beats, and other wireless options useless. Apple officially ditched the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and later, making the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter the missing link for wired headphones. Twelve South now makes a similar adapter to connect the latest wireless headphones such as AirPods directly to a 3.5mm headphone port.
AirPods Pro are water resistant, with an IPX4 rating. This means they are rated to resist splashing water.
Sweating during a workout or a few drops of rain shouldn't be a problem for AirPods Pro. However, this does not mean they are completely waterproof. AirPods Pro are not designed for underwater use, or for water sports such as swimming.
