To set up and configure Apple’s latest smart speaker, the HomePod, users will need a device running iOS 11.2.5 or later and within range of the HomePod. The mobile device’s screen will display an image of the HomePod speaker to indicate it has successfully connected to the speaker. In addition, if using HomeKit, users will have to select the Home item to specify the default location for the speaker, including the living room, bedroom, kitchen, or elsewhere.
Immediately following are instructions for the new HomePod Personal Requests feature, and you should pay close attention to avoid confusion when using it later. Anyone close to the HomePod can access and send messages using the HomePod’s connection to the iPhone. They can also create notes, add timers, and do more with your iCloud account. To limit this, you can turn off the Personal Requests feature.
From here, you can start playing commands, and the HomePod will respond quickly. Users can also change other options for HomePod from the iOS Home app if they miss the above setup steps.
