  • Amp up everything you hear

    HomePod is a powerhouse of a speaker. Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software deliver high-fidelity sound throughout the room. It intelligently adapts to whatever it's playing - or wherever it's playing - and surrounds you in immersive audio that makes everything you listen to sound incredible.
  • Room-filling oomph

    A high-excursion woofer packs HomePod with deep, rich bass. Its powerful motor drives the diaphragm a remarkable 20mm, while its bass-EQ mic dynamically tunes low frequencies in real time. Superclean bass. Fills the room. Boom.
  • Hits the high notes

    HomePod has an array of five beamforming tweeters around its base. They optimize high frequencies to produce detailed, articulate audio with stunning clarity. So you can enjoy crystal-clear vocals and all the details of the instruments - just as if you were there in person.
  • Sound all around

    Enjoy an advanced level of spaciousness and layering with HomePod. Its beamforming tweeters precisely beam direct sound, like primary vocals, into the middle of the room, and reflect ambient sound, like the backup band, off the walls - for fully immersive listening. Plus, with Spatial Audio tracks, you'll experience the sense of being surrounded in music like never before.
  • Optimizes acoustics in real time

    Apple silicon unlocks advanced computational audio innovations in HomePod. Using feedback from the system sensor, it runs complex tuning models in real time to preserve dynamic range and maximize acoustic performance.
  • Tuned to the room

    With room sensing, HomePod automatically understands its location in a room by using its mics to listen for sound reflections. It tunes sound accordingly, so you'll enjoy the best listening experience possible no matter where it's placed.
  • 100+ million songs, sounds amazing

    HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music. Listen to all of your favorite artists and songs - spanning every imaginable genre - in a high quality, right in your own home. With effortless access to one of the world's largest music libraries, the music never really has to stop.
  • Even more dynamic as a duo

    Create a stereo pair to amplify all the music you love. Just place two HomePod speakers in the same room, and you'll be asked if you want to pair them up. Get ready for a wider soundstage and even more enveloping audio than that of traditional stereo speakers.
  • Cinematic experience

    Use HomePod with Apple TV 4K to enjoy Dolby Atmos audio for a complete cinematic home theater experience. Fully immersive sound. Mind-blowing visuals. World-class content. Your favorite TV shows and movies never looked, or sounded, so vivid.
  • Whole-house music

    Bring multiple HomePod speakers under one roof and easily enjoy music throughout your entire home. You can play one song everywhere, or jazz in the kitchen and kids' music in the little one's room. With multiroom audio, get ready to rock the whole house.
  • Turn up the music, podcasts and calls

    From amazing tunes on Apple Music and other third-party music apps to news, podcasts and phone calls, HomePod dials up the clarity and fullness of all the listening experiences you love.
  • All your devices in concert

    HomePod works seamlessly with your Apple devices. Handoff lets you transfer what's playing on iPhone to HomePod - and the other way around - without skipping a beat.
  • Built-in intelligence that speaks for itself

    HomePod comes with Siri built-in. So things like setting reminders and sending messages, turning on the lights when you walk in the door, adjusting the temperature and even DJ-ing your next dinner party, are just a "Hey Siri" away. Manage your day and control your smart home effortlessly with Siri.
