News for the latest headphones from Beats

Beats Studio Buds now support iCloud auto sign-in. This means they can automatically sign in to devices that are logged into the same iCloud account, similar to the experience found with AirPods. Until now, you had to log in manually with each device.

In addition, bringing the Beats Studio Buds charging case close to an iPhone allows it to display a pop-up with the remaining battery life of each earphone. Again, the experience is similar to that found with AirPods.

Finally, Apple has enabled the ability to manage the sound volume using the “b” button on the headphones. The manufacturer says it works with iOS, macOS, and Android devices.

Update 10M359 for headphones will download and install automatically. You can try the following method to attempt to force the download (it works with AirPods, see for Beats headphones):

  • Make sure the headphones are within Bluetooth range of their iOS, iPadOS, or macOS device
  • Listen to music or other audio content with headphones for at least 30 seconds
  • Put the earbuds back into the charging case and close the lid
  • Connect the charging case to a power source via Lightning
  • Wait 30 minutes and above all do not open the case during this period otherwise you will have to start from the beginning
