Are you worried about your HomePod being in a place where anyone outside your home can interact with Siri? Afraid that a thief might yell at Siri to unlock the front door while you’re away? Apple thought of that, too—HomePod requires an iOS device to authenticate unlocking security HomeKit accessories.
HomePod, the new sound of home, is here. To go with the launch, Apple published a brand new online user guide for HomePod to help owners set up their wireless speaker, adjust its settings and get the most out of its features.
Apple’s upcoming Siri-powered speaker has won praises from technology reviewer David Pogue, who touted its impressive sound quality compared to the Google Home Max, the latest Amazon Echo and the Sonos One.
Are you confused about what HomePod can and can’t play? If so, Apple has now updated HomePod’s technical specifications with a handy list of all the audio sources that the Siri-powered wireless speaker supports out of the box.
