The Homepod is a breakthrough wireless speaker for the home that delivers amazing audio quality and uses spatial awareness to sense its location in a room and automatically adjust the audio. Designed to work with an Apple Music subscription for access to over 40 million songs, Homepod provides deep knowledge of personal music preferences and tastes and helps users discover new music. Homepod features a large, Apple-designed woofer for deep, clean bass, a custom array of seven beam-forming tweeters that provide pure high frequency acoustics with incredible directional control and powerful technologies built right in to preserve the richness and intent of the original recordings. Homepod will be available starting in December, initially in Australia, the UK and the US. As a home assistant, Homepod is a great way to send messages, get updates on news, sports and weather, or control smart home devices by simply asking Siri to turn on the lights, close the shades or activate a scene. When away from home, Homepod is the perfect home hub, providing remote access and home automations through the Home app on iphone or ipad. Security and privacy are fundamental to the design of Apple hardware, software and services. With Homepod, only after “Hey Siri” is recognized locally on the device will any information be sent to Apple servers, encrypted and sent using an anonymous Siri identifier. Homepod is compatible with iphone 5s and later, running IOS 11. Visit www.apple.com/homepod for more details.
