How To Update Your Mavic 3 Firmware [January 2022]
Before updating, Make sure your drone's battery is at least charged to at least 20%! The Mavic 3 drone's firmware can be updated using either the DJI Fly app or DJI Assistant 2 on a computer.
The software will automatically check for firmware upgrades for the aircraft and remote controller when the remote controller is connected to the internet. When a firmware update notification comes, tap it to bring up the update screen, and then tap "Update." It's essential to ensure the two devices are connected and that you do not exit the app during the process.

It’s clear that DJI has worked to improve the Mavic 3 based on the feedback from professional pilots across the UK.
Essentially, the Mavic 3 January Firmware update brings the drone in line with DJI’s promised expectations. All of the promised features unveiled at launch have now arrived.
The Mavic 3 is now in a premiere position and is certainly worthy of being DJI’s flagship drone. Sadly it’s taken a few months to get in pole position but the Mavic 3 is now a worthy investment for commercial and hobby pilots.
