Apple HomePod overview

  • 1Description

The space gray 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 (Space Gray) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Poor Interaction. I have both the HomePod and the Sonos 1. The HomePod sounds better but Sonos app provides better interaction. The Sonos app becomes a central hub which also all the devices to see and change what is playing. HomePod runs in the background which is cool b/c it lets you play movie and other content but other users (devices) can see what its playing or the source. So on HomePod you basically just over right what the other device is doing to play what you want. For example one user (a) starts playing a playlist then another user (b) whats to see whats in the playlist or skip a song etc. on HomePod there is no interaction for this. For me this is a huge downside and needs to be a major update for Apple. For the money Sonos 1 is a steal vs the HomePod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Great sound. Best Airplay audio experience I’ve experienced and I find Siri very useful in conjunction with HomeKit

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great sound! �Siri still lacking a bit. As I had heard, the sound is top notch but Siri is... well... Siri. �I do use the voice commands a lot, and they do work great, but I've used the Alexa and her commands are broader and more nuanced. That said, the HomePod is out of the box amazing sound!!! �I haven't stopped listening since the day it arrived.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the Sound Not Directional Enjoy the non directional sound--good from anywhere in the room. �Great sound quality. �A little bass heavy. Nice integration with Apple Music. Have 2--waiting for stereo integration with likely IOS 12.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you love Apple Music, this is a must This speaker is my favorite purchase of the year. I link it to my Apple TV in my bedroom and the sound is just amazing. I love how the music fills the room. Siri works great. Highly recommend this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the reviews Let’s be clear the HomePod was never meant to be a smart speaker. Instead it was designed and developed to produce outstanding sound in a compact package within the Apple ecosystem and that is exactly what it does. The sound of speakers is truly subjective and to say if Google Home or Sonos is the better speaker is just that, subjective. One thing is clear the tinny sounding echo or echo dot does not compete in sound quality to the HomePod. Siri does not compete in answering trivia, playing fireplace sounds etc. like Alexa. �Siri does take commands in a low voice and does it well. Ask it to play music, set an alarm, play the news, or give the weather no problems. Is it as robust as Alexa? No but it wasn’t made to be that way. Shortcomings? A few... can you ask Siri to stream other music providers through voice commands? No, but you can stream it through Airplay. HomePod does many things well and yes shortcomings exist but the software exists within the HomePod for future upgrades. HomePod is still new but if you are looking for amazing sound particularly if you are signed up to Apple Music you will not be disappointed.
