Apple has just launched the AirPods Pro firmware beta, with some crisp new things.
With their H1 chip, AirPods Pro are real small computers capable of improving over time with software updates. But if the firmware of the headphones has been updated several times since the launch of the AirPods Pro, Apple had never launched the beta version of a firmware. It is now done.
By surprise, the firm has just made available a first beta of the AirPods Pro firmware from the developers. This offers headphones some of the new features Apple introduced during WWDC 2021, including the arrival of spatial audio and noise reduction in FaceTime. However, this beta skips another new feature: Conversation Boost, a function that amplifies the voice of a person speaking in front of us.
Although there has never really been a particular technique to force the installation of firmware on AirPods – this is done 100% automatically – this beta version will require some manipulation. First of all, you will have to make sure you have a developer account, before going to the Dev Center from Apple. The whole chain of products must follow: AirPods, an iPhone with the iOS 15 beta, and a Mac with the beta of Xcode 13. The process is detailed on this page.
For now, we do not yet know when Apple will deign to launch these novelties to the general public, but there is a good chance that it will be done at the time of the official launch of iOS 15, scheduled for this fall, following the presentation of l’iPhone 13.
