The exact details of the new firmware are often unknown, but it likely includes bug fixes and improvements to the reliability of the devices.

Why the Difficulty?

There are a couple of reasons why updating Apple mouse and keyboards might be more complex than other devices:

  • Limited User Control: Unlike iPhones or iPads that prompt users for updates, there’s no dedicated way to manually trigger a firmware update for these accessories.
  • Bundled with New Products: New firmware versions often seem to be shipped with new Apple products, suggesting the update process might be tied to the manufacturing stage.
