    My HomePods haven’t been able to give me my personal update anymore since updating them to 14.5.

    Ever since updating to 14.5 I can’t seem to say ‘goodnight’ to Siri, as it always accuses me of not being at home… I have a scene named “goodnight” and this used to reliably switch off all my HomeKit devices. Now I get this message and selecting yes just shows an error. This occurs on any iOS...

    HomePod Odd behavior from full sized HomePod stereo pair

    Odd behavior... I have a full sized HomePod stereo pair in 1 room, another full sized single HomePod upstairs, and a HomePod Mini. Since the latest OS update (was it TVOS 14.5??), the full sized stereo pair has gotten annoyingly quirky. Now, if I tell the full sized pair to play 'everywhere'...

    Listening to music while using Apple TV

    If I have a HomePod or HomePod mini paired to an Apple TV, can I play music through airplay from my phone, while whatever video I'm watching on the TV is muted, or will the speaker not allow that? Just need to know whether I'll need a separate speaker for that. Thank you very much.
