HomePod Service and Repair

How do I get service for my HomePod?

Set up an appointment at an Apple Store or an Apple Authorised Service Provider. When you get service, bring your iPhone with you and make sure you know your Apple ID and password. Depending on where you get service, you might be able to check the status of your repair online.

Or, contact us and we'll send you a shipping label and packaging. You should receive them within two to five business days. Reset your HomePod to factory settings and remove it from the Home app. Then, bring the shipping label, packaging and your HomePod to Australia Post. Australia Post will send your product to us, and we'll return it to you as quickly as possible.

How much does it cost?

If your HomePod issue is covered under warranty or consumer law, you won't pay a fee. Otherwise, repairs are considered out of warranty if your HomePod is no longer covered by the Apple warranty, or your HomePod has accidental damage or issues caused by unauthorised modifications.

If you have AppleCare+, it includes accidental damage protection. Each incident of accidental damage is subject to a service fee. If you don’t have AppleCare+, the out-of-warranty fee applies.

Express Replacement Service

If you need to replace your HomePod immediately, Express Replacement Service offers speedy delivery. We can send you a replacement HomePod right away with shipping materials and instructions. Return your original HomePod to us within 10 business days of your request to avoid paying the full replacement value for HomePod.

Express Replacement Service is only available for AppleCare+ customers. The service delivers your replacement HomePod faster, but it doesn't cover any costs for your product, such as service fees or the replacement value. When we get your original device, we'll determine those costs. Meanwhile, you can start using your replacement HomePod.

When you request Express Replacement Service, we put a temporary authorisation on your credit card to cover the full replacement value of your product. This authorisation will expire if:

  • Your repair is covered under warranty, an AppleCare plan or consumer law
  • We receive your original product within 10 business days

If we receive your HomePod and find that it was severely damaged in an accident, or it's inoperable after unauthorised modifications, you'll pay the full replacement value.

Model Replacement value
HomePod A$ 469
HomePod mini A$ 149

All prices apply in Australia. These fees are in Australian dollars and include GST. Your replacement HomePod will be new or equivalent to new. Apple reserves the right to change the replacement value on this web page from time to time.
