HomePod

The new sound of home.

HomePod is a breakthrough speaker that adapts to its location
and delivers high-fidelity audio wherever it’s playing. Together with
Apple Music and Siri, it creates an entirely new way for you to
discover and interact with music at home. And it can help you with
everyday tasks — and control your smart home — all with just your voice.

Major sound,
minor scale.

This purposefully designed speaker creates rich, nuanced sound that defies its size. HomePod combines custom Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver precision sound that fills the room. And at less than 18 centimetres tall, HomePod fits anywhere in your home.


Deep bass with range you can feel.

The Apple-designed high-excursion woofer is positioned at the top of the speaker facing upwards, creating a wide range of deep bass that surpasses any traditional speaker. A six-microphone array, along with an internal bass-EQ microphone, analyses and compensates for the effect of the room on the bass response, providing rich, consistent sound. And a powerful motor drives the diaphragm a remarkable 20 millimetres, so the bass shines through even when the volume is low.


Far and away an incredible listener.

Six microphones positioned around HomePod allow it to pick up all the soundin a room. When you say “Hey Siri”, advanced signal processing, together with echo and noise cancellation, allows HomePod to hear you without the need to raise your voice — even if you’re across the room with loud music playing. After HomePod recognises the words “Hey Siri”, what you say is encrypted and sent anonymously to Apple servers without being tied to your Apple ID.


High-fidelity audio that's all around you.

A custom-designed array of seven beamforming tweeters, each with its own amplifier, creates tremendous directional control. Placed around the base and using a folded-horn design, they send the flow of music towards the centre and then out the bottom in a 360-degree pattern, resulting in an all-encompassing sense of space. This virtually eliminates early table reflections and allows for consistent high-definition sound.


The biggest brain ever in a speaker.

An Apple-designed A8 chip orchestrates all the remarkable audio innovations inside HomePod. Like advanced signal processing so Siri can hear you over the music. Real-time studio-level processing that maximises the bass while minimising distortion. Buffering that’s even faster than real time. And upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. You get amazing sound, every single time.


Designed to be seen and heard.

HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for aesthetics and acoustic performance. Available in white and space grey, it’s gorgeous from every angle — yet virtually transparent to the sound waves passing through it.

Knows how to work a
room. Automatically.

Setting up HomePod is quick and magical. Simply plug it in and your iOS or iPadOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically tunes itself to give you optimal sound — wherever it’s placed. Pair it with a second HomePod to create an unmatched stereo experience. And bring multi-room audio to your whole home with AirPlay 2.

Wall-to-wall. Ceiling-to-floor.
It's room-filling sound.

Place HomePod anywhere in the room. With spatial awareness, it automatically analyses the acoustics and adjusts the sound based on its location. Direct sound, including the main vocals and instruments, is beamed to the middle of the room, while ambient sound is diffused into left and right channels and bounced off the wall. So the entire space is filled with rich, well-defined tones.

A stereo pair.
A new dimension of sound.

A HomePod stereo pair works in concert to instantly create a wider, more immersive soundstage with a significantly bigger sweet spot than traditional stereo speakers. Each HomePod automatically detects its placement in the room and precisely adjusts the music in balance with the other, from the very first song it plays. A HomePod stereo pair not only creates more room-filling sound but also provides great bass extension, with a deeper, more accurate reproduction of low frequencies.

Cotnrol music throughout your home
with Airplay 2. All from one room.

When you add HomePod to multiple rooms, the speakers communicate with each other through AirPlay. So you can ask Siri to play jazz in the living room and the Moana soundtrack in the kids’ room — or to play the same song everywhere in the house — all from where you’re standing. As you move around the house, your music can go with you — just tell Siri to move the song from one HomePod to another and you won’t miss a beat. With HomePod, you can also control any of your other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers using just your voice.

The ultimate
music authority.

HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music.1 With the intelligence of Siri and access to over 60 million songs, it learns what you like and helps you discover more music you’ll love. And that takes the listening experience to a whole new level.

60 million songs never sounded so good.

Apple Music unlocks virtually every song you can imagine.1 Stream anything in the Apple Music catalogue along with music from your existing library. And friends connected to your Wi-Fi network can stream their music right to your HomePod. Don’t have Apple Music? Try it free for three months and cancel anytime.

Learns the music you like, plays the music you'll love.

When you’re really into a song, say “Hey Siri, I like this”. The more you tell HomePod what music you like, the more Apple Music learns your taste in music. Which means you can also just say, “Hey Siri, play something I’d like” to hear your favourite songs, as well as new tracks similar to the ones you like.

Stream audio from more sources with AirPlay.

With AirPlay, you can play music from different streaming services, and audio from movie, video, news, sports and audiobook sources.

Up next, your favourite podcasts.

With hundreds of thousands of shows, Apple Podcasts helps you to discover powerful new stories and catch up on all your favourites.
