Before you can start using your new Apple HomePod, you'll need to set it up using an iPhone or iPad that's synced to an iCloud account.
During the setup process, HomePod will link the iCloud account to personal request features accessed through the speaker via Siri voice commands, such as the ability to send messages, set up reminders, and get calendar notifications.
It will also link the HomePod to any existing Apple Music subscription tied to that iCloud/iTunes user, so it's worth thinking carefully about which account holder in your household you want to associate with the speaker.
For the HomePod setup process to work you'll need an iOS device running iOS 11.2.5 or later, so check your iPhone or iPad is up to date. To do so, open the Settings app, tap General -> About, and look for the version number. If you need to update, tap back to Settings, select Software Update, and follow the onscreen instructions.
