Covers the JBL Flip 2 wireless speaker firmware update directions. However, we know of no official way to upgrade the software on this particular speaker. Indeed we find no firmware downloads for this unit on the JBL web site. Plus, there are no details for this in the included manuals.
So it’s likely that JBL feels that the speaker works well enough with the original firmware. Thus they do not offer a (perhaps) confusing and complicated update procedure for this older speaker.
Moreover, in our tests, this speaker is still highly reliable. E.g. We find no bugs, lost connections, distortion, or any other undesirable behaviors. Therefore firmware updating is likely not needed. Indeed, updating this speaker appears to be impossible for the average owner.
Finally, a no-update option makes the Flip 2 even easier to use. And it’s nice to see a speaker that works well, right out of the box, and will likely never need updates to fix problems. So if that’s the sort of hassle-free operation you’re looking for in a Bluetooth speaker, then this speaker is for you. It’s a virtually zero-service model, and the only maintenance it needs is to keep it clean and to exercise the battery periodically.
