NEW iOS 14 AirPods Pro 3A283 Update – What’s New?

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

What's up guys my name is brandon and with ios 14 right around the corner apple just released a new firmware update for the airpods and airpods pro so after being on version 2 d27 for about three months now we finally get the next major update which is version number 3a283 so of course in this video we're going to be checking to see what's new in this update along with any type of bug fixes or enhancements to the airpods and airpods pro so first off if you guys do not know how to update your airpods

Pro or check out the version number that you're on all you want to do is connect your airpods to your device and then you want to go to settings general about and then scroll down and you should see your airpods pro right there click on that and then you will see the firmware version right here and you can see this is the new one that was just released today 3a283 and once again it was for the airpods and the airpods pro and if your airpods

Have not been updated yet if you're still on version 2 d27 all you need to do is plug in your airpods with a lightning connector or set it on a wireless charging pad and then just set it next to the iphone and it should update automatically within maybe five to ten minutes it should not take long at all and of course you can check inside of settings to see if it has been updated all right so let's go ahead and discuss what's new in this update and the first thing is the biggest feature for the airpods yet and that is spatial

Audio so this is the long-awaited feature that was announced at the worldwide developers conference a few months ago and it is finally here with this new update and of course you do have to be on ios 14 for this to work as well so if you go into settings and go to bluetooth and then tap on the i next to your airpods pro and scroll down you will see we have the spatial audio toggle right there you can also get to this by going to your settings go to accessibility scroll down to

Airpods and then you will see down here at the bottom spatial audio follow iphone so you do want to make sure that toggle is turned on and then down below you can see a description of what spatial audio is and it says when follow iphone is on audio for supported movies and tv shows will sound like it's coming from your iphone instead of following your head movement so basically spatial audio gives you a fully immersive surround sound experience when watching

Tv shows and movies inside of the apple tv application and the audio actually follows your head movement and the sounds in the shows or movies seem a lot more realistic and directional so basically if you like had your iphone sitting down like this and you were listening to your air pods sitting up it would sound like the audio was coming from down below you it would sound like it's coming from the actual iphone instead of just being all in your ears and just being

Able to hear it perfectly fine in your ears and then if you were to pick it up like this and maybe move it to the left the audio would follow where your iphone or your head is moving which is crazy and the way the apple achieves this feature is pretty crazy so they use directional audio filters and subtle adjustments to the frequencies that each airpod receives in order to give you a true surround sound experience but that's not it apple also uses the gyroscope and the accelerometer in

Both the airpods pro and in your iphone or ipad to track your head movement and the device location and with that information ius 14 and this new airpods pro firmware update will remap the sound field in real time so that the sound essentially follows your head and it's pretty crazy because if you turn your head when you're watching a show like if i'm just watching a show right here and that my airpods in and i turn my head to the right i'll hear a lot of the audio coming from

The left side and down because that's where my iphone is and my head is turned to the right so the audio will sound like it's coming from below me and to the left it's really crazy and i can't really describe it you're gonna just have to install this and check it out on your own because it is insane it sounds awesome when you're watching movies or tv shows and once again if you go into the tv application it is supported on most of these shows in here the one i was testing it on was the

Morning show right here but it does also work for a lot of other ones i have listened to them now also if i go ahead and put my airpods pro in you will see that we have a new toggle here inside of the control center as well so you can see there it switched if we 3d touch or haptic press on the volume toggle right here when our air pods are connected you will see we have a new spatial audio toggle down there on the bottom right where you can easily turn it on

Or turn it off and you get that little animation when you touch it there as well so spatial audio is just an absolutely incredible feature for the airpods pro and again this is just an airpods pro feature and again you do need to be on ios 14 and the latest version of the airpods firmware in order to have this feature enabled on your device and it is a game changer i think it's awesome but anyways what else is new here

In this latest airpods update so this update also includes another highly anticipated feature that apple announced at wwdc 2020 and that is automatic switching so yes with this new firmware and ios 14 of course you will be able to connect your airpods to any apple device signed in with your apple id when you play audio on that device so it connects automatically you no longer have to connect manually to a different device so i'm going to show you guys how this feature works so you can see here i have my iphone 11 pro

And my iphone 11 pro max my iphone 11 pro is currently connected to my airpods as you can see right there the 11 pro max is not connected to my airpods at the moment and instead of just having to manually connect on this device like by pressing this and then by pressing on my airpods pro right there it will automatically connect once it detects that i'm playing audio so i'm going to play audio here on the iphone 11 pro as you can see it's playing right there

And then if i just go ahead and press play on the iphone 11 pro max take a look at what happens it automatically paused the audio on the iphone 11 pro and it shows this up top brandon's airpods pro moved to iphone and then if we press play on the iphone 11 pro you can see it switches right back i'll play again on the 11 pro max switches back again and you can see how this feature works and again it does work for the iphones and ipads as well

As long as you are on ios or ipad os 14. so that is a super cool feature that i'm glad is finally here with ios 14 and this new airpods firmware update so those are the two big features in this update but there are also some bug fixes and enhancements as well so the first thing is that noise cancellation seems to be slightly improved and i noticed that i cannot hear as much outdoor noise as i could in the previous version of the airpods firmware so obviously

When the airpods pro first came out noise cancellation was perfect you really could not hear anything and then after a few updates it just got progressively worse and you could start hearing more of the outside world and a lot of people complain about this myself included and now in this new firmware it seems like it's going back to how it was originally it still doesn't seem as strong to me the noise cancellation doesn't but that could just be the placebo effect but it does seem like the noise

Cancellation has been enhanced here in this latest update which is really great to hear now another issue that seems to be fixed in this update is the crackling issue so i've never had any type of crackling issue on my airpods or airpods pro but some people have reported it in previous versions i've seen it a lot in my comment section and it's even been published you know on publications as well that this was a known issue and some people are reporting that it's actually been fixed with this update so

It's not confirmed just yet because of course this update did just come out but it seems like some people are saying that they have not had that issue since the update so if you are having crackling issues you may see a fix to that with this latest airpods firmware update so anyways guys there you have it those are the latest and greatest new features and changes in the new airpods and airpods pro firmware update 3a28 again this brings two highly highly anticipated features in spatial audio

And automatic switching and once again you do need ios 14 installed to take advantage of these great features and i highly recommend you guys check out spatial audio in the apple tv application when watching tv shows or movies it is just an excellent experience and words can't really do it justice you'll have to listen to it yourself to see how great it is and of course i would expect enhancements to this feature as time goes on as well so i will keep

You guys updated on that but anyways if you guys enjoyed this video i would appreciate if you give it a thumbs up and of course make sure you subscribe for a lot more videos on the airpods pro ios iphones all that fun stuff happens here on this channel but anyways guys thanks again for watching and i'll see you soon you
