Apple releases firmware update for AirTags

0

Apple today released a new firmware update designed for its AirTag item trackers, with the firmware featuring an updated version number of 2A24e, from firmware 1A301 which was released in april.

Apple doesn’t provide release notes for AirTag updates, so we don’t know what’s new in this update.

It is not possible to force an AirTag update, as it is something that is done over the air via a iPhone. To make sure the update happens, you can bring your AirTag within range of your ‌‌iPhone‌‌, but you have to wait for the firmware to roll out to your device. You can check your current AirTag firmware version through the find my app, with instructions available in our user manual.

Apple will provide this firmware on an ongoing basis, releasing it to AirTag owners starting today and running through December 1. This staggered release schedule allows Apple to ensure that the firmware update works as expected before rolling it out to all users.
