With the launch of iOS 14.4, Apple added a new feature for the HomePod mini that's designed to provide haptic feedback when your iPhone 11 or 12 is near the speaker to facilitate the simpler handing off of songs from one device to another.
When moving your iPhone closer to a HomePod mini after installing the iOS 14.4 update, the iPhone vibrates quicker and quicker as it gets closer to the speaker, and HomePod mini controls pop up on the screen. If you happen to keep your HomePod mini on a desk or another location where it's often close to your iPhone, the proximity notifications can get frustrating fast.
If you've run into this problem and want the popups and vibrations to stop, follow these directions:
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap on "General."
- Tap on "AirPlay & Handoff."
- Toggle off "Transfer to HomePod."
