AirPods Max 3C39 firmware released

The news: Apple released the first AirPods Max software update since launch on Tuesday morning.


  • Users have been reporting battery drain issues for weeks now, and it’s possible that today’s update fixes that
  • Apple never provides exact release notes for AirPods updates, so this is our best guess currently

Our take: I’ve noticed a lot of inconsistent battery performance on my pair of AirPods Max. Sometimes I don’t have to charge them for a while…and other times they are just dead. Hopefully 3C39 evens things out.
