Apple has rolled out its newest AirTag firmware, version 126.96.36.199, to all users. The update had first been released to a limited number of users back in August, and the company continued to seed the same update with different build numbers to users. However, this phases roll-out is now complete and Apple has released the final version of 188.8.131.52 to all AirTag owners.

There are no release notes or changelog for AirTag firmware 220.127.116.11, unlike previous releases where Apple actually added new features to the location trackers. For example, AirTag firmware version 1.0.276 had new features that prevent unwanted tracking and added support for an Android app so that users can detect when an unknown AirTag is traveling with them.
It is unclear as to why Apple released the firmware in phases to different groups of users. As the company has not shared any details, it is likely that the firmware only contains under-the-hood improvements and performance updates.
There is no manual method to update AirPods, so you will have to wait for the update to be available to your trackers. If you want to check whether you have the latest firmware installed on your AirTag, open the Find My app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and navigate to the Items tab. Select your AirTag, and tap or click on the battery icon to see the serial number and firmware.
