    I’ve been wondering when a new update would be released! Neither of mine have updated yet.

    I just read this article on Apple Insider. Apparently, Apple has just released a "slightly revised build" of their recent update. So, maybe, we'll start receiving updates on our AirTags. I just checked one of mine, and nothing yet. Time will tell!

    I have a phone running 15b8 and the Airtag firmware is 1.0.276 and I wanted to update it. The Airtag has been sitting next to my phone for several hours and hasn't updated yet.

    I have restarted the phone and the Airtag does appear in Find My and report the correct status.

    I know the firmware works behind the scenes. I don't know what else to do.

    Philip, I moved your post to this thread since there was already an existing thread about the latest AirTag update. You are not the only one who has not yet received the update. There's nothing you can do to initiate the update, which can be frustrating! Just keep your AirTag close to your iPhone and it will eventually update. And you can check this thread periodically because I'm sure folks will post when their AirTags have updated.

    I keep checking for the update that’s now revised since my iPhone is usually in my purse right next to both of my AirTags (car key ring and purse inner zipper pouch) and still nothing. If it’s anything like the last update I think it took like two weeks before it finally updated. All you can do is be patient and wait since you can’t force the update

    How to do an update? just put them next to one another and let them do OTA!

    Essentially, yes.

    Still on 1.0.279.

    I’d like to know what distance “close” is. My AT stays roughly 15’ from my phone.

    1.0.279? I'm in 1.0.276!

    I keep my keys right next to my iPhone at work. At home, my keys are usually in my purse, and my 2nd AirTag is in my backpack. When we finally got the last update, I don't recall where my ATs were at the time. It will happen... eventually!

    Yeah, .276. I blame eyes and age.
