Updated by Marina

In order to provide you with an even better tracking experience, Pebblebee may offer firmware updates to keep your product up to date, bring the latest improvements, and increase the performance of your unit.

Please note that not all products are eligible for upgrades. The product line that can receive upgrades includes Clips, Cards, Tags, and the Found. You can identify your specific product by searching within the Pebblebee Family.

How to check the firmware version

The method for checking your Pebblebee product's firmware version varies depending on the app you're utilizing. Below, we've provided instructions on how to check the firmware version using various compatible apps for Pebblebee products.

Check the firmware version when on the Apple Find™ My app

Please make sure your Bluetooth is ON. There are two places on your iPhone for Bluetooth settings:

  • Check on the Control Center if the Bluetooth icon is enabled
  • On your phone's Settings > Bluetooth.
  1. On the Find My app, tap on the "Items" tab on the bottom.
  2. Select your device on the list.
  3. Tap on your device's name to expand the details.
  4. The serial number and firmware version will appear.
    eg. Serial '<16-digit-long-id>' Firmware: 1.9.0'

Check the firmware version when on the Pebblebee app

On the Pebblebee app, you will be notified when there is a new version available for your unit. You will know that is time to update when you receive a notification and an 'Update' button shows up in front of your device.

You can also check the firmware version:

  1. Open the Pebblebee app
  2. Tap to select your device
  3. On General, tap "Software Update"
  4. Bring your device close to the phone and hit "Check update".
