AirTag is getting firmware updates three weeks in a row.

Spotted by MacRumors, Apple has released yet another revised version of the AirTag firmware update that was originally released two weeks ago.

Apple today released a second revised version of the AirTags firmware that was first provided to AirTags owners in late August. The new internal build number is 1A291e, up from 1A291c from the prior revision.

It’s currently unclear why Apple adjusted the previously released firmware update (or the first one for that matter) and we’re unlikely to find out. Apple does not provide release notes for firmware releases like it does for its software releases so there’s no way to tell what is new with the latest update. It is safe to say that the updates contain the usual bug fixes and performance improvements.

  1. Open the Find My app
