As of new, there is no word as to what changes have been included in the latest AirTags firmware. Back in June, Apple updated the AirTags firmware with anti-stalking enhancements.

AirTags receive firmware updates automatically over the air, meaning there is no way to force the update manually. You simply need to put your AirTag in the range of your ‌‌iPhone‌‌ and wait for the firmware to roll out to your device.

To check your current AirTag firmware version through the Find My app, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open up the Find My app.
  2. Tap on the Items tab.
  3. Tap on the AirTag that you want to check in the list.
  4. Now tap on the name of the AirTag to see the current firmware version.
