Powerful Sound Smart Speaker Beautiful and Functional Design Learns what you love Control your Smart Home

24 hours isn't exactly a lot of time

Unless you're Jack Bauer, of course. Which you aren't. He's fictional - and unless artificial intelligence has come a long way in a short space of time, you're very much real.

If you consider yourself a professional procrastinator, 24 hours is barely enough time to read your emails, let alone respond. Especially if you sleep the recommended ten hours a night.

But it's all we give you to capitalise on our great deals.

And you've just wasted five minutes reading this and wondering how to make the simple act of email reading last a full work day.

About

HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it’s playing. It’s the ultimate music authority, bringing together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music. It’s also an intelligent home assistant, capable of handling everyday tasks — and controlling your smart home. HomePod takes the listening experience to a whole new level. And that’s just the beginning.

Product features

Deep bass. Engineered to lower the boom. We built the high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier to play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20 mm — remarkable for a speaker this size. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.

Seven tweeters. Amazing sound from every angle. HomePod has a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters. Each with its own amplifier and transducer. And each custom designed with a precision acoustic horn that focuses sound for tremendous directional control. Creating an all-encompassing sense of space — and consistent, high-fidelity audio everywhere in the room.

A8 chip. The biggest brain ever in a speaker. An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the most complex audio innovations in HomePod. Like real-time modeling of the woofer mechanics. Buffering that’s even faster than real time. Upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. Beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music. And advanced echo cancellation. So you get amazing sound without even thinking about it.

Beautiful design with a purpose. HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetic and acoustic performance. Available in white and space gray, it’s gorgeous from every angle — yet virtually transparent to the music. And at just under seven inches tall, it can fit anywhere in your home.

It’s easier than easy. It’s automatic. Setting up HomePod is quick and magical. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically adjusts to give you optimal sound — wherever it’s placed. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing. All you need to do is enjoy your music.

Senses the room and tunes the music. All by itself. Place HomePod anywhere in the room. It automatically analyzes the acoustics, adjusts the sound based on the speaker’s location, and separates the music into direct and ambient sound. Direct sound is beamed to the middle of the room, while ambient sound is diffused into left and right channels and bounced off the wall. So your music sounds amazing, wherever you are in the room.

Create stereo sound with a second HomePod. Put another HomePod in the same room and they automatically detect and balance each other. With advanced beamforming capabilities, a HomePod pair is able to create a wider, more immersive soundstage than a traditional stereo pair.

AirPlay 2. Add HomePod to more roomsWhen you add HomePod to more than one room, the speakers communicate with each other through AirPlay 2. Play the same music everywhere or play different songs in different rooms. You can also control any other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers.

The ultimate music authority. HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music.1 With the intelligence of Siri and access to virtually all the world’s songs, it’s like having your very own musicologist who learns and plays what you like, and helps you discover music you love.

Over 45 million songs in your home. Apple Music unlocks virtually every song you can imagine.1 Siri helps you find exactly what you want to hear, and what you want to hear next — including new music across a huge range of genres and moods. And friends connected to your Wi-Fi network can stream their music right to your HomePod. Don’t have Apple Music? Try it free for three months and cancel anytime.

Learns what you love. And what you don’t. When you’re really into a song, say “Hey Siri, I like this” or “Hey Siri, add this to my party playlist.” Based on what you say and play, Apple Music learns your taste in music.1 Which means you can also just let it pick the songs. And when you open Apple Music on any other device, your playlists and preferences are right where you left them.

Responds to your voice. And your touch. Tap the top of HomePod to play, pause, skip a song, or adjust the volume. Touch and hold the top to talk to Siri. You’ll know Siri is listening by the LED waveform that animates with your every word.

Home to an intelligent assistant. HomePod is great at playing your music. But it can also tell you the latest news, traffic, sports, and weather. Set reminders and tasks. Send messages. Hand off phone calls. And HomePod is a hub for controlling your smart home accessories — from a single light bulb to the whole house — with just your voice.
