  • Immersive, high-fidelity sound from a compact speaker
  • Works seamlessly with Apple devices
  • Siri is your intelligent assistant
  • Control your smart home devices
  • Private and secure

Apple’s updated HomePod is a powerhouse of a smart speaker. Apple-engineered audio tech delivers high-fidelity sound that fills the room. It intelligently adapts to the type of music played, and the environment it’s in, surrounding you in optimised, immersive sound. Together with Apple Music, it gives you access to over 100 million songs. And with the intelligence of Siri, it's a helpful home assistant for everyday tasks, and for controlling your smart home accessories. All with just your voice.

Audio by Apple
A high‑excursion woofer packs HomePod with deep, rich bass, while its bass‑EQ mic dynamically tunes low frequencies for super-clean bass. Five beamforming tweeters optimise high frequencies to produce supremely detailed audio so you can hear vocals and all the rich details with stunning clarity. Direct sound like primary vocals is projected into the middle of the room, while ambient sound, like the backing band, is reflected off the walls for fully immersive listening. And it supports Spatial Audio content too, for even greater immersion.

Always optimised
Advanced audio innovations ensure fully dynamic range and maximise acoustic performance. And with Room Sensing, it tunes the sound for optimal listening depending on where it’s placed.

Marvellous in multiple
If stereo sound is your thing, just pair two HomePod speakers in the same room to create left and right channels for an expanded soundstage. Or set up multiple throughout the home for marvellous multi-room music.

Apple Music & easy streaming
With Apple Music (subscription required) you have access to over 100 million songs, virtually every song you could think of. And by voice interacting with Siri, it learns your tastes and can help you discover great new music. Friends connected to your Wi-Fi network can stream their music straight to your HomePod. And you can also AirPlay other content from iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.

Home assistant
As well as playing music, the HomePod can keep you up to date with news, traffic, sport and weather. It can set reminders and tasks and send messages. All with just your voice.

"Hey Siri, play pop hits"
"Hey Siri, set a timer for 25 minutes"

Activate your smart home
It can help you control your smart home too; a wide range of smart home accessories are compatible with Apple's HomeKit platform. Just add the device to the Home app on your iOS device to get started.
