Despite its small size, the HomePod mini produces powerful sound. Measuring just 8 cm tall, it fills the room with rich, 360-degree audio that sounds great from any angle. For even more expansive sound, consider adding multiple HomePod minis. If you prefer to expedite system updates or have disabled auto-updates on your HomePod mini, you may want to manually update the system software on your device.

By default, both the HomePod mini and HomePod are set to automatically install available software updates, but you can also manually update the system software when new updates become available. This can be done through the Home app on your Mac.

In this article, we will assume that you are able to access your HomePod mini or HomePod from your Mac using the Home app.
