The new sound of home
HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it’s playing. It’s the ultimate music authority, bringing together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music. It’s also an intelligent home assistant, capable of handling everyday tasks — and controlling your smart home. HomePod takes the listening experience to a whole new level. And that’s just the beginning.
A breakthrough speaker all round
We completely reimagined how music should sound in the home. HomePod combines Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver the highest-fidelity sound throughout the room, anywhere it’s placed. This elegantly designed, compact speaker totally rocks the house.
Deep bass. Engineered to lower the boom
We built the high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier to play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20 millimetres — remarkable for a speaker this size. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyses the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.
Seven tweeters. Amazing sound from every angle
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 tremendous directional control. Creating an all-encompassing sense of space — and consistent, high-fidelity audio everywhere in the room.
The biggest brain ever in a speaker.
An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the most complex audio innovations in HomePod. Like real-time modelling of the woofer mechanics. Buffering that’s even faster than real time. Upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. Beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music. And advanced echo cancellation. So you get amazing sound without even thinking about it.
Beautiful design with a purpose
HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetic and acoustic performance. Available in white and space grey, it’s gorgeous from every angle — yet virtually transparent to the music. And at under 18 centimetres tall, it can fit anywhere in your home.
It’s easier than easy. It’s automatic
Setting up HomePod is quick and magical. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically adjusts to give you optimal sound — wherever it’s placed. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing. All you need to do is enjoy your music.
Create stereo sound with a second HomePod
Put another HomePod in the same room and they automatically detect and balance each other. With advanced beamforming capabilities, a HomePod pair is able to create a wider, more immersive soundstage than a traditional stereo pair.
AirPlay 2. Add HomePod to more rooms
When you add HomePod to more than one room, the speakers communicate with each other through AirPlay 2. Play the same music everywhere or play different songs in different rooms. You can also control any other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers.
The ultimate music authority
HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music. With the intelligence of Siri and access to virtually all the world’s songs, it’s like having your very own musicologist who learns and plays what you like, and helps you discover music you love.
Over 45 million songs in your home
Apple Music unlocks virtually every song you can imagine. Siri helps you find exactly what you want to hear, and what you want to hear next — including new music across a huge range of genres and moods. And friends connected to your WiFi network can stream their music straight to your HomePod. Don’t have Apple Music? Try it free for three months and cancel anytime.
Learns what you love.
And what you don’t.
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 just where you left them.
Responds to your voice. And your touch
Tap the top of 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.
Home to an intelligent assistant
HomePod is great at playing your music. But it can also tell you the latest news, traffic, sport and weather. Set reminders and tasks. Send messages. Hand off phone calls. And HomePod is a hub for controlling your smart home accessories — from a single light bulb to the whole house — with just your voice.
Siri has all kinds of answers
Thanks to Siri, HomePod is great at the things you want to know, and do, in your home. Set timers. Convert measurements. And get live news, sport, weather and traffic. You can also create lists that anyone can add to.
At home with calls and messages
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.
This is how you command a room
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.
