HomePod Software 16 public beta

The public beta of HomePod Software 16 for the HomePod mini is only available.

It’s not possible to install the current beta on the original HomePod, which was released in 2018. For now, the new HomePod is only compatible with Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 12

which is accessible as a beta version through Apple’s Seed programme.

In contrast, the HomePod mini contains a USB-C connector that allows consumers to restore its software using a Mac computer.

Unfortunately, there are no release notes on what’s new in the latest HomePod software.

A Matter-enabled HomePod is highly expected to be included in HomePod Software 16.1 because of Apple’s recent implementation of the new “Matter” home automation protocol in iOS 16 and tvOS 16.
