Apple shares new HomePod tutorials on YouTube

Apple shares new HomePod tutorials on YouTube

The HomePod is "not the best-sounding wireless speaker in our ratings-or even the best-sounding smart speaker", Allen St. John of Consumer Reports wrote Friday.

I got a demo of the HomePod's comparison with other leading smart speakers on the market, and the Echo has one similar advantage when it comes to the sound: Since the speaker wraps around the entire device, it sounds the same no matter where you're standing, much like the HomePod. What we'd do here today is help you through the initial setup process, which is super-easy in itself but it doesn't hurt to have a leg up, does it? While Siri was decidedly at the last place in this round, most of it was due to a lack of support by the HomePod for navigation, email or calling. To use a competing service such as Spotify with the HomePod, you have to control it through your phone.

Okay, let's say you've just got yourself a brand new HomePod and are itching to get it all hooked up and ready to rock your house, and that's understandable. In future iOS versions, we'd expect Apple to update the software to prevent a blank screen from appearing in this scenario. Mute controls are generally hardware switches on smart speakers that disable their listening function. Apple has definitely made a decision to cash in on this opportunity and quote a $279 price to replace the HomePod entirely if it is damaged.

Wells Fargo's stock slump has cost Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway $2.4 billion
In late 2011, mounting fines and liabilities over Bank of America's role in the housing collapse pushed its stock price below $5. The stock price moved with change of -3.38% to its 50 Day low point and changed 19.27% comparing to its 50 Day high point.


One limitation of the HomePod is its inability to set multiple timers.

While smart speakers have been around for a few years at this point, the scene is gradually shifting more towards a focus on sound quality as the smart functionality has continued to improve. Not HomePod, however. Well, not directly.

One of the video tutorials teaches you how to tweak the speaker's settings via your Home app on your smartphone. I could say the same thing "When You Say Nothing at All" by Allison Kraus and Union Station. Until Google released its Google Home Max in December, that is.

'Fifty Shades Freed' easily wins the weekend box office
Barnum who founded the Barnum & Bailey circus in the 1800s, it's earned $146.5 million domestically and $314.2 million globally. Fourth-place on the domestic charts will go to " Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ", now in its eighth-week in theaters.


And the HomePod won't play music from popular streaming services like Pandora or Spotify.

Apple posted a support page for its HomePod, and if you scroll down to the "Repair options" link (or hit the source link), you will be taken to a page that lays out your service and fix options. However, he said two Sonos One speakers provide better sound than one Apple HomePod (of course, he's hardly objective).

Apple's HomePod is now available for purchase and naturally, it's been promptly dissected in an iFixit teardown. If you decide to place it in the corner of a room or near to a wall the speaker will automatically adjust the audio.
