Welcome HomePod.

The new sound of home.

HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing, adapts to wherever it’s playing, and together with Apple Music, gives you effortless access to one of the world’s largest music catalogues. All controlled through natural voice interaction with Siri.1 It takes the listening experience to a whole new level. And that’s just the beginning.

Available early 2018

A breakthrough speaker all round.

We completely reimagined how a speaker should make music in the home. HomePod combines Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver the highest-fidelity sound throughout the room, no matter where it’s placed. This elegantly designed, compact speaker totally rocks the house.

Engineered to bring down the house.

We built the high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier to play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20 millimetres — remarkable for a speaker this size. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyses the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, distortion‑free sound.

Seven tweeters. Amazing sound from every angle.

HomePod has a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters that precisely focus the sound, from very narrow beams all the way to true, consistent 360-degree audio. By aiming those beams throughout the room, the tweeters create an immersive sense of space — no matter where HomePod is or where you’re sitting.

A8 chip. It’s always thinking about the sound.

A powerful Apple-designed A8 chip is the brains behind the most complex audio innovations in HomePod. Like real-time modelling of the woofer mechanics. Buffering that’s even faster than real time. Upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. Beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music. And advanced echo cancellation. So you get amazing sound without even thinking about it.

Beautiful design with a purpose.

HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetic and acoustic performance. Available in white and space grey, it’s gorgeous from every angle — yet virtually transparent to the music. And at under 18 centimetres tall, this speaker can fit anywhere in your home.

It’s easier than easy. It’s automatic.

Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod is smart enough to sense where in the room it’s playing. Or that you added another HomePod. Or that you’re telling it what you want to hear — even from across the room. Then it responds to all this information automatically, so all you have to do is listen.

Senses the room and tunes the music.
All by itself.

Place HomePod anywhere in the room. It automatically analyses the acoustics, adjusts the sound based on the speaker’s location, and steers the music in the optimal direction. Whether HomePod is against the wall, on a shelf or in the middle of the room, everyone gets an immersive listening experience.

Combine two in one room.

Put another HomePod in the same room, and the two automatically detect and balance each other — for sound that’s even more lifelike.

AirPlay 2.
Add HomePod to more rooms.

When you add HomePod to multiple rooms, the speakers communicate with each other through AirPlay 2 — so you can play your music all round the house. You can also control any other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers.

Hears you across the room
and over the music.

Want to change the music? Just ask Siri on HomePod. It’s the most intuitive way to find and play a song. Innovative signal processing allows Siri to hear your requests from afar, even with the music playing at full blast. At the same time, multiple layers of security — including anonymous ID and encryption — protect your privacy.

The ultimate music authority.

Built to bring out the best in Apple Music, HomePod is a key part of an incredibly deep and intuitive music ecosystem that lives everywhere you do.1 With Siri intelligence and access to virtually all the world’s recordings, it’s like having a musicologist who helps you discover every song you’d ever want to hear.

40 million songs
in your home.

Apple Music unlocks every song you can imagine from over 2 million artists.1 Siri helps you search, filter and find exactly what you want — from the biggest hits to the deepest cuts, across a huge range of genres and moods. And with “Shared Up Next”, everyone in the house has a say in what HomePod plays.

Learn more about Apple Music

Learns what you love.
And what you don’t.

Tell Siri when you like the song that’s playing, or say “Hey Siri, play something different”. Based on what you say and play, Apple Music learns your taste in music.1 Which means you can also just let it pick the songs. And when you open Apple Music on any other device, your playlists and preferences are just where you left them. Wherever you go, the beat goes on.

Examples of Siri music commands.

  • Hey Siri, DJ for me

  • Hey Siri, play something else

  • Hey Siri, play the Moana soundtrack next

  • Hey Siri, who’s the drummer in this song?

  • Hey Siri, play some hip hop

Responds to your touch too.

Tap the top of HomePod to play, pause or adjust the volume. The top also shows you when Siri is listening, with an LED waveform that animates with your every word.

Listen to what
else it can do.

HomePod isn’t just great at playing your music. It also helps with everyday household questions and tasks. And it’s a hub for controlling your smart home accessories — from a single light bulb to the whole house — with the power of your voice.2

Siri has all kinds
of answers.

Because it has Siri, HomePod can hear and answer questions in the most popular categories. Timers. Clocks. Measurements. Translations. News. Sport. Weather. Traffic. And general knowledge. It’s great at the things you want to know, and do, in your home.

How to command
a room.

Just say “Hey Siri, turn on the lights” or “cool down the room” or “lower the blinds”. A wide range of accessories work with Apple’s HomeKit platform — from air conditioners to garage doors to security cameras. Just add an accessory to the Home app, then control it with your voice on HomePod.
