Apple has released HomePod 14.7 software, which includes the ability to manage timers via the Home App

HomePodandMini feature orange
According to Apple’s release notes, today’s update allows users to manage timers directly from the Home app on the iPhone and the iPad. Apple says the update also includes general performance and stability improvements.

Apple today released a new 14.7 software update for the HomePod and the HomePod mini, which is designed to accompany the iOS 14.7 release that is now available on the iPhone.

There have been multiple complaints of sudden HomePod failures possibly due to overheating with the prior 14.6 update, but it is not clear if the 14.7 software fixes these issues.

‌‌‌‌‌HomePod‌‌‌‌‌‌ software is installed automatically on the ‌‌‌‌‌‌HomePod‌‌ unless the feature is disabled‌‌‌‌, but the ‌‌‌‌‌‌HomePod‌‌‌‌‌‌ can also be manually updated in the Home app by following the instructions in our ‌‌HomePod‌‌ update how to.

So I’ve update both my OG Homepods (theater mode ATV4K 2021) and everything seems fine. I did heard a loud fart though but after some investigation it seemed my girlfriend was the culprit. Anyway, somehow Siri jumped from my left HomePod to the right?! How.. and why..? So many questions..

We just need to know if they get overly hot.

I can see this thread being a bit “I’m not trying it, you try it” ?

I’m holding off for a bit anyway. Mine are still unplugged.
I just plugged mine back in and am about to do the update. Really have missed the HomePods in my office over the past week. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I‘m betting (hoping) 14.7 fixes the bricked HomePod issue. Apple probably doesn’t want to explicitly state that this version fixes the bug. If the release notes mentioned it, Apple would likely find itself hit with a lawsuit over all the HomePods that were bricked on 14.6.
