HomePod also got a software update today bringing the version to 16.2. Do not add a new feature.
HomePod 16.2 software update arrives with bug fixes and performance improvements
It packs bug fixes and performance improvements, HomePod Software Update 16.2 is a must download for anyone with the new OG HomePod or HomePod mini. Since the HomePod mini was released in 2020, it’s weird to call it new, but here we go.
Unlike the previous update which added support for Matter, the new update focuses on fixing bugs only. If you rely on your HomePod or HomePod mini to act as a hub for your HomeKit setup, it is recommended that you go ahead and install the update manually. You can do this by going to Home Settings in the Home app and then choosing the Software Update option from there.
You can update your HomePod or HomePod mini using your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
