Latest Intel iwlwifi firmware not being loaded

The firmware being picked up by my system is:

% sudo dmesg | grep iwlwifi | grep firmware
[   12.367148] iwlwifi 0000:59:00.0: loaded firmware version 72.daa05125.0 cc-a0-72.ucode op_mode iwlmvm

However the latest is 77, not 72:

% ls -1  /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-cc*

How do I get the latest version to load?

Why do you think it should load the latest? The specific version it loads depends on a bunch of factors. Also max version it can load also depends on the kernel version.

Glad to know there may be nothing wrong here.
