Update HomePod

Use the Home app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac to update the software on your HomePod or HomePod mini.

By default, HomePod and HomePod mini install new software updates automatically, but you can check for updates manually in the Home app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.

  1. Make sure your device is updated to the latest version of iOS, iPadOS or macOS.

  2. Open the Home app.

  3. Tap or click the More buttonNo alt supplied for Image, then Home Settings > Software Update.

  4. If there's a new update, select Update.

    Update Available appears below Automatic Updates on the Updates screen in the Home app

If there isn't a new update, you can select HomePod to turn on automatic updates and get the latest software automatically when it's available. Software Update also tells you if your HomePod is already up to date, and shows you the installed HomePod software.

A white spinning light will appear on the top of HomePod while it's being updated. The update might take some time. Make sure your HomePod remains plugged in while it's being updated.
