Apple does not provide information on what's included in firmware updates for its Beats earbuds, so we are not sure what improvements or bug fixes the new software brings.

There's no standard way to upgrade the ‌Beats‌‌ Studio Buds, but firmware is generally installed over-the-air while the earbuds are connected to an iOS device. Putting the Beats‌‌‌‌‌ in the case, connecting them to a power source, and then pairing them‌‌‌‌‌ to an iPhone or iPad should force the update after a short period of time.

If we find notable changes after the firmware update is installed, we'll share details, but the software likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes rather than outward-facing changes.

Every time there's news about Beats, I think of $2 bln (!!!) spent on Dr Dre Beats... This was the most insane waste of cash by any company (apart from Elon buying Twitter).
LOL. Glad you aren't in charge of a company....This has been paid back like 50 times over...LOL.

A quick Google search will show....
"If the question comes from a revenue standpoint, the Beats acquisition was absolutely worth it. Not only is the company generating upwards of one billion dollars each year, but it helped position Apple as one of the biggest headphone manufactures in the world, in just a couple years."

Let's 3 billion for a company that will add 1 billion A YEAR in sales....Nah...who in the world think THATS a good idea?? LOL

So I'm curoius. Beats aren't marketed only to people with Apple devices like AirPods are. Can Android phones update their firmware too?
