As part of the WWDC developer conference, Apple released a new beta version of the firmware for the AirPods. This is only the second time that pre-release software has been provided for the headphones. According to the official description, the firmware focuses on improving automatic switching between devices and various bug fixes and stability.

The new firmware has a version number of 5.0 and a build number of 5A5282d and is currently only available as a developer beta. According to the release notes, the new firmware is intended to enable the development of AirPods -related features in iOS and macOS, enabling Apple to troubleshoot issues more quickly.

Apple Developer Program members have access to the beta firmware now on the official website, with a public beta scheduled for July. It seems that the beta firmware will not be available for first-generation AirPods.

How to install the new firmware of AirPods

Apple says developers need an iPhone with iOS 16 beta, a Mac with macOS Ventura beta, Xcode 14 beta, and supported AirPods to install the firmware beta. The installation is then a bit more complicated. After pairing AirPods with the iPhone, connect the iPhone to the Mac with a Lightning cable, run Xcode 14 beta on the Mac, go to Settings → Developer, and select Pre-Release Beta Firmware in the AirPods Test section.

Sharp updates will then be installed automatically when connected to the iPhone.
