Apple Releases New Firmware Update For The AirTag

Apple has released a new firmware for its AirTag item trackers, bringing the build number up from 1A301 to 2A24e. The update can be installed on an AirTag right now.

However, because the AirTag doesn’t have any way to manually force an update anyone who has one will need to wait for Apple to install the new firmware automatically.

That means it could take a while, but all you need to do is make sure that your AirTag is in range of your iPhone and wait. You can check which version of the AirTag firmware your tracker is running from within the Find My app, too.

It isn’t clear what the new firmware does or if users should expect there to be any improvement in connectivity or location tracking once the update has been released.

MacRumors notes that “Apple will provide this firmware on a rolling basis, seeding it out to AirTag owners starting today and through December 1,” so don’t worry if you don’t have it installed yet.

It’s thought that the staggered release is because AirTag firmware updates don’t have any sort of beta testing, so Apple rolls updates out this way in order to get more testing completed before making the update available to all.
