The first software update for the recently released Apple product does not bring new features, yet it’s still an update you should not skip. This update will surely boost performance and resolve minor bugs that may be holding you back from making the most of your HomePod.
Couple of things to ensure before the update:
- The smart speaker must be powered on and configured.
- Your iOS device is connected to a Wifi network.
Here are the steps to upgrade HomePod to 11.3 (15E217)
Step 1: Open the HomePod app on your iOS device.
Step 2: Tap on ‘Location’ at top right corner.
Step 3: Scroll down to speakers section and tap on ‘Software update.’
Step 4: Tap on update button below the upgrade details.
After the update is complete, you will receive a “software is up to date” message. It might come as a disappointment that AirPlay 2 is still not a part of this upgrade, but I hope it will be available very soon.
