Product Information

Amp up everything you hear.

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’s playing — and surrounds you in immersive audio that makes everything you listen to sound incredible.

 

Room-filling oomph.
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. Superclean bass. Fills the room. Boom.

 

Hits the high notes.
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.

 

Sound all around.
Enjoy a whole new level of spaciousness and layering with HomePod. Its beamforming tweeters precisely beam 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. Plus, with Spatial Audio tracks, you'll experience the sense of being surrounded in music like never before.

 

 

Optimizes acoustics in real time.
Apple silicon unlocks advanced computational audio innovations in HomePod. Using feedback from the all-new system sensor, it runs complex tuning models in real time to preserve dynamic range and maximize acoustic performance.

 

 

Tuned to the room.
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’ll enjoy the best listening experience possible no matter where it’s placed.

 

 

100+ million songs? Sounds amazing.
HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music.2 Listen to all of your favorite artists and songs — spanning every imaginable genre — in the highest quality, right in your own home. With effortless access to one of the world’s largest music libraries, the music never really has to stop. From amazing tunes on Apple Music and other third-party music apps to news, podcasts, and phone calls, HomePod dials up the clarity and fullness of all the listening experiences you love.5
And with AirPlay, you can enjoy even more of your favorite audio on HomePod.4

 

All your devices in concert.
HomePod works seamlessly with your Apple devices. Handoff lets you transfer what’s playing on iPhone to HomePod — and the other way around — without skipping a beat.6 And with just your voice, easily locate a loved one or your misplaced iPhone with Find My.7

 


Even more dynamic as a duo.
Create a stereo pair to amplify all the music you love.3 Just place two HomePod speakers in the same room, and you’ll be asked if you want to pair them up. Get ready for a wider soundstage and even more enveloping audio than that of traditional stereo speakers

 

 

Cinematic experience.
Use HomePod with Apple TV 4K to enjoy Dolby Atmos audio for a complete cinematic home theater experience.1 Fully immersive sound. Mind-blowing visuals. World-class content. Your favorite TV shows and movies never looked, or sounded, so vivid.

Spatial Audio works with compatible content in supported apps on HomePod (2nd generation) and HomePod (1st generation). Not all content is available in Dolby Atmos.
Apple Music requires a subscription.
Creating a HomePod stereo pair requires two of the same model HomePod speakers, such as two HomePod mini, two HomePod (2nd generation), or two HomePod (1st generation).
Requires multiple HomePod speakers or AirPlay–compatible speakers with the latest AirPlay software.
Some services may require a subscription.

Find My Friends support requires the user to have Personal Requests enabled and friends and family to share their location in the Find My app on iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch.
Temperature and humidity sensing is optimized for indoor, domestic settings, when ambient temperatures are around 15º C to 30º C and relative humidity is around 30% to 70%. Accuracy may decrease in some situations where audio is playing for an extended period of time at high volume levels. HomePod requires some time to calibrate the sensors immediately after starting up before results are displayed.
Requires a HomeKit- or Matter-enabled accessory. Smart home accessory sold separately.
Sound Recognition will be available in a software update later this Spring. Sound Recognition may detect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm sounds and send you notifications when recognized. Sound Recognition should not be relied upon in circumstances where you may be harmed or injured, or in high-risk or emergency situations. Sound Recognition requires the updated Home architecture, which will be available as a separate update in the Home app. It requires all Apple devices that access the home to be using the latest software.
Matter accessories require a home hub, such as an Apple TV or HomePod device.
