HomePod is a powerhouse of a speaker. Apple‑engineered audio technology and advanced software deliver high‑fidelity sound throughout the room. It intelligently adapts to whatever it’s playing — or wherever it is playing — and surrounds you in immersive audio that makes everything you listen to sound incredible.
Rich Bass Sound
A high‑excursion woofer packs HomePod with deep, rich bass. Its powerful motor drives the diaphragm a remarkable 20 mm, while its bass‑EQ mic dynamically tunes low frequencies in real-time.
HomePod has an array of five beamforming tweeters around its base. They optimize high frequencies to produce detailed, articulate audio with stunning clarity. So you can enjoy crystal-clear vocals and all the details of the instruments — just as if you were there in person.
Surround All around
Enjoy a whole new level of spaciousness and layering with HomePod. Its beamforming tweeters precisely direct sound, like primary vocals, into the middle of the room and reflect ambient sound, like the backup band, off the walls — for fully immersive listening. And with Spatial Audio tracks, you will experience the sense of being surrounded by music like never before.
Apple silicon unlocks advanced computational audio innovations in HomePod. Using feedback from the system sensor, it runs complex tuning models in real-time to preserve dynamic range and maximize acoustic performance.
With room sensing, HomePod automatically understands its location in a room by using its mics to listen for sound reflections. It tunes sound accordingly, so you will enjoy the best listening experience possible no matter where it’s placed.
Apple Music Support
HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music. Listen to all your favourite artists and songs — spanning every imaginable genre — in the highest quality, right in your home. With effortless access to one of the world’s largest music libraries, the music never has to stop.
Pairing Up HomePod 2 Speakers
Create a stereo pair to amplify all the music you love. Place two HomePod speakers in the same room, and you’ll be asked if you want to pair them up. Prepare for a wider soundstage and more enveloping audio than traditional stereo speakers.
Use HomePod with Apple TV 4K to enjoy Dolby Atmos audio for a complete cinematic home theatre experience. Mind-blowing visuals. World-class content. Fully immersive sound. And now Enhance Dialogue can pull spoken words forward in the centre channel. So, even whispers are heard more clearly amid the music and background sounds. Your favourite TV shows and movies never looked or sounded so vivid.
Whole House Music
Bring multiple HomePod and HomePod mini speakers under one roof and easily enjoy music throughout your entire home. You can play one song everywhere, or jazz in the kitchen and kids’ music in the little one’s room. With multi-room audio, get ready to rock the whole house.
From amazing tunes on Apple Music and third-party music apps to news, podcasts, and phone calls, HomePod dials up the clarity and fullness of all the listening experiences you love.
And with AirPlay, you can enjoy even more of your favourite audio on HomePod. And now you can ask Siri to play audio from any app on your iPhone.
HomePod works seamlessly with your Apple devices. Handoff lets you transfer what’s playing on your iPhone to HomePod — and vice versa — without skipping a beat. And with just your voice, use Siri to quickly locate a loved one or your misplaced iPhone with Find My.
As your smart home hub, HomePod lets you control your home without lifting a finger. With Siri and intelligent accessories, things like closing the garage door can be done using your voice. With the ability to create automation, tasks like dimming lights at night happen automatically, along with helpful features like Sound Recognition, which listens for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
