Apple HomePod overview

  • 1Description

The white Apple HomePod is a wireless music speaker, a smart home hub, and a Siri-enabled intelligent assistant all rolled into one device.

Packed with Apple-engineered audio technology, HomePod uses advanced software for real-time acoustic modeling, audio beamforming, echo cancellation, and more. Powered by the Apple A8 chip, the HomePod delivers a wide, spacious soundstage. Using spatial awareness to sense its location in the room, the HomePod automatically adjusts the audio to sound optimal wherever it's placed. The large Apple-designed woofer delivers deep, clean bass while the custom array of seven beamforming tweeters provide pure high frequency acoustics with directional control. The array of six microphones can pick up your "Hey Siri" from across the room, even when loud music is playing.

Paired with an Apple Music subscription (sold separately), the HomePod provides access to up to 45 million songs. It also learns preferences and tastes that are shared across devices. Using Siri to deliver deep knowledge of artists, songs, albums, and more, HomePod can handle advanced searches within Apple Music's catalog, so users can ask questions like, "Hey Siri, when was this song released?" or "Hey Siri, can you play something totally different?" to change the mood.

The HomePod is more than just a wireless speaker. It has Siri built-in so you can send messages, set timers and reminders, and check the weather — all with just your voice. The latest business news, headlines, and sports updates stream directly to the HomePod from popular media sources, like NPR, CNN, ESPN, and more. HomePod can also be used as a speakerphone with the Apple iPhone for a hands-free conversation.

With HomeKit support, HomePod can control multiple home devices and control a number of different accessories at the same time. HomePod can turn on the lights, raise the shades, set the desired temperature, and more. You can even enable remote access and automations for certain times of the day.

The HomePod features 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 technology. It is compatible with the iPhone 5s and later, iPad (5th gen) or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, or iPod touch (6th gen), running iOS 11.2.5 or later.

Deep Bass
The high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier can play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20mm. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.
Seven Tweeters
The HomePod has a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters, each with its own amplifier and transducer, and each custom designed with a precision acoustic horn that focuses sound for directional control. The seven tweeters create an all-encompassing sense of space and consistent, high-fidelity audio in the room.
Apple A8 Chip
An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the HomePod and its complex audio features, like real-time modeling of the woofer mechanics, buffering faster than real time, upmixing both direct and ambient audio, beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music, and advanced echo cancellation.
Stylish Design
The HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetics and acoustic performance. It also stands just under seven inches tall for a compact design.
Spatial Awareness
Setting up the HomePod is quick and easy. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically analyzes the acoustics, adjusts the sound based on the speaker's location, and separates the music into direct and ambient sound. Direct sound is beamed to the middle of the room, while ambient sound is diffused into left and right channels and bounced off the wall. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing.
Apple Music
With an Apple Music subscription (sold separately), you'll have access to over 45 million songs. Siri helps you find exactly what you want to hear and what you want to hear next, including new music across a wide range of genres and moods. And friends connected to your Wi-Fi network can stream their music right to your HomePod.

When you're really into a song, say "Hey Siri, I like this" or "Hey Siri, add this to my party playlist." Based on what you say and play, Apple Music learns your taste in music, which means you can also just let it pick the songs. And when you open Apple Music on any other device, your playlists and preferences are right where you left them.
Touch Surface
Tap the top of the HomePod to play, pause, skip a song, or adjust the volume. Touch and hold the top to talk to Siri. You'll know Siri is listening by the LED waveform that animates with your every word.
Siri
With Siri, you'll be able to set timers, convert measurements, get translations, get live news, sports, weather, and traffic. You can also create lists that anyone can add to.
Calls & Texts
Use HomePod to send messages using just your voice. And when you receive a text, Siri can read it to you. For hands-free conversations, start or receive a call on your iPhone and hand it off to HomePod.
HomeKit
Just say "Hey Siri, turn on the lights" or "Hey Siri, make the room cooler." You can even ask Siri to set scenes, like "Good morning," that put multiple accessories to work — all at once. A wide range of accessories work with Apple's HomeKit platform. Just add an accessory to the Home app, then control it with your voice on HomePod.

    Apple HomePod reviews

    HomePod (White) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound For the size, this speaker has a lot of heft and powerful sound. Planning on getting a 2nd one when Airplay 2 comes out. �I can easily play music from iTunes on any of my Apple devices, and although I don't use Siri that much, it's responsive and has accurately responded with news or music play directions. �Be aware that Siri will only respond to you, and be recognized by the Home app, if you've turned on 2-factor authentication, which is a pain w/Apple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound! I'm normally too lazy to review products I've purchased, but have been so happy with this speaker that I decided to do so here.� If you're looking for high quality audio, this is the speaker for you as it is on par with some of the best quality speakers available at much higher price points and you get Siri integration to go with it.� The Siri integration works perfectly to easily to start playing your music, hosting parties, and to control other smart home devices thru HomeKit.� Couldn't be happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound ... can't wait for stereo functinality These sound stunning – deep, rich bass, and highs and mid-tones that are undistorted even at top volume. I can't wait until stereo functionality is enabled so that all three of my HomePods can work in harmony. Airplay2 is going to be a game changer!
