The first update of the HomePod firmware, released simultaneously with iOS 11.3, degraded the sound quality of the speakers. This disappointed owners told on the pages of the portal Reddit. According to them, the update reduced the bass potential of the device and the maximum volume, leaving many users in perplexity.
In addition to the noticeable decrease in the sound quality produced by the column, users note the inability to roll back to the original firmware version. Since the process of downloading and installing the update is via the “Home” application on the iPhone or iPad, it is unclear where the backup is stored and how to access it if necessary.
Some owners of HomePod, however, had an update to taste. As this group of commentators notes, the update made the sound more enjoyable due to the reduction of baseness. Earlier, in their opinion, HomePod was only suitable for parties, whereas now it plays tranquil compositions without tearing out the eardrum bass.
