Please note: this update will only work with iOS. If you want to update your mikme for Android OS, please go here.

You can update the mikme OS software two different ways, either:
A – The mikme app: Over The Air (OTA) or
B – Manually via USB with your computer


A – Over The Air (OTA) via the mikme app

You can update the firmware via the mikme app when your mikme's OS runs version:

54.04 or HIGHER

Don't know what OS version your are running? Learn how to find the version here.

If you have a version LOWER than 54.04 you will need to update your mikme manually via USB. If this is the case, please proceed to section "B".


1 – turn on your mikme

2 – open your mikme app and navigate to the settings

3 – select your mikme and the microphone's settings menu will appear

4 – navigate to "mikme OS" and click "update" and an update description will appear

Don't see an update button? Only see a mikme OS version number? There could be two possible reasons for this. If the mikme OS version number is 00.54.04 or higher then you are on the latest version and there is no need to update again. You're good to go! But If the mikme OS number is lower than 00.54.04 then you need to update manually as the OTA (over the air) update feature is not available. Please proceed with section "B" below.

5 – read the description and then click "update your mikme"

The app will now automatically update your mikme. The mikme button on top of your gold or silver will flash green and blue while the update is ongoing.

6. watch for the mikme button's LED to turn white - that means you're done!

Your mikme will restart automatically and reconnect with the mikme app. 

OMG, you successfully updated your OS OTA!!!! You rock! Now, get out there and start creating.


B – manually via USB on your computer

Before you start, please read these important notes:

  • DO NOT disconnect your mikme at any time while updating it via USB

2 – prepare your mikme

  • Make sure your mikme is powered off
