AirPods (2nd Generation) – Firmware Rev. 2D3 – New Firmware?
While there is no significant technical documentation on this, internally or externally, it appears there’s a new firmware revision making it’s way through the pipeline. I personally have a replacement-repair AirPod (left-side, A2031) working on 2D3.
The issue is that it will not properly pair with AirPods running older firmware. Trying with both 2CXX and 2AXXX revision right side devices I have at home, it results in a flashing amber light, with no amount of resets or pressing of the Setup Button resolving the issue.
Apple has been very helpful with trying to fix this (since of course I’d love to have a working pair of AirPods). They can’t seem to find any information on 2D3, though things are crazy as is in the world in general, and with all the software released today, it may have gotten lost in the swing of things.
However, I thought it worth starting a thread to see if others have found 2D3 out in the wild. I saw on a Chinese forum there was a user reporting having rev. 2D3. Anyone else see 2D3 out there? And if so, do you think it’s a new firmware, or an old one, or an oddity?
