AirTag anti-harassment features were updated in 1.0.276, and Apple has released a new version of this update to users.
Unlike other operating systems, AirTag does not have an updated menu to manage the installation of incoming updates. Instead, users must wait until the update is automatically installed. Twitter user “Apple Software Updates,” not affiliated with Apple, reported that the AirTag firmware was released on Wednesday afternoon. MacRumors confirmed this tweet, stating that the firmware is now available.
Users can check the firmware version through the Find My app. Just tap the Items tab, select AirTag, then tap the battery icon below the device name to view the firmware version.
Users cannot check if the update was installed and when it was installed because while there is a way to check the firmware version, there is no way to check the build number. For example, the new AirTag firmware version is 1.0.276, build number 1A287b, up from the old build number 1A276d.
The update may be a further enhancement to anti-retaliation features. Since Apple has not released any notes on the firmware, it cannot be verified.
