Apple’s popular wireless earbuds will more seamlessly switch between devices and audio. For example, users can finish an audiobook and then pick up their iPad to watch a TV show. When someone calls, the audio will automatically switch to the call.
The pricier Pro version will now have a new feature called “spatial audio” that aims to replicate a surround sound or movie theater experience.
In 2 Main Steps Update Airpods Pro
Apple today released new 3A283 firmware updates for the second-generation AirPods and the AirPods Pro.
The second-generation AirPods are being updated from the 2D15 firmware they were previously running, while the AirPods Pros are being updated from the 2D27 firmware they had installed previously.
How to check your AirPods or AirPods Pro firmware ?

You’ll see a toggle for Spatial Audio there, along with other settings.
How to update your AirPods firmware ?
Unfortunately, there’s no reliable way to force your AirPods to update their firmware. It happens automatically, and you just sort of have to wait. You may be able to increase your odds of the AirPods updating by following these steps:
Make sure your AirPods are in their charging case.
Make sure your AirPods are connected to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and that said device has an internet connection.
Close the lid of your AirPods charging case and either plug them in or set them on a wireless charger (if you have a wireless charging case).
Even with these conditions met, it can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours for update AirPods pro. .macrumors , macworld
