Apple today released a firmware update for its top-of-the-line AirPods Max. The new firmware update 3E756 is the third time Apple has updated the AirPods Max after its launch in December 2020.
Apple last updated its AirPods Max in March to the firmware version 3C39. Like its other AirPods update, Apple hasn’t provided a changelog on what the new firmware version of AirPods Max brings. Apple had said that it will bring Lossless Audio (via lightning port) support to AirPods Max, and perhaps the new 3E756 update brings its support. However, there’s no concrete evidence of the Lossless Audio on AirPods Max yet.
