Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Setup A Factory Reset HomePod?

If you have a relatively new iPhone/iPad you can just bring your device near the top of the HomePod and the setup will show up on your screen.

Where Can I Buy A HomePod?

The original HomePod has been discontinued, but the new HomePod Mini can be bought from Apple.

Can You Hang A HomePod Mini By An Outlet?

There are outlet wall mounts for the HomePod Mini. I use the Stanstar wall mount which is available in both black and white.

Can You Pair A HomePod With A HomePod Mini?

You can’t create a stereo pair with two different HomePod models. But you can play music through both via AirPlay.

Which HomePod Mini Color Is Better?

The only difference between the two is the color, they’re the same in terms of features and functions.

I like the black model more because it doesn’t show dust, dirt, and debris as much as the white one. I also like that it’s not as apparent on the TV bench. So it depends on how and where you have it set up.
