Apple has released new firmware for AirPods, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. The latest firmware is 4A400. Previously, AirPods and AirPods Pro worked with 3E751, while AirPods Max worked with 3E756 firmware.
According to some speculation, Apple has added Conversation Boost to AirPods Pro. However, there is no way to confirm this because the company has not published any release notes. Furthermore, there is no word on bug fixes and feature updates. Conversation boost is a smart feature to increase the volume of conversations. It is a function of iOS 15 and uses microphones to shape the beam to increase the volume. The Conversation Boost feature aims to help those with hearing impairments. Related to this, this feature could help anyone trying to talk in a noisy environment.
Unlike the iPhone, there are no triggers to update your AirPods. Typically, the firmware is installed wirelessly, and this happens when your AirPods are connected to an iPhone or iPad. If you want to force update, put AirPods in the case, connect the charging case. After a while, connect the AirPods to your iOS device. Ideally, the update process should begin soon.
