Adam Christianson from the Maccast and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to share their experiences after a weekend with Apple’s HomePod.
It turns out you can use your iPhone as a HomePod remote.
You can use HomePod as a speaker for your Apple TV even though Apple doesn’t explicitly say that’s supported. Here’s how to link up your Apple TV and HomePod.

John Kheit put together a HomePod unboxing video for me. It includes not only the unwrapping and unboxing, and his set up process, too. It stops shy of him foaming at the mouth about how much he doesn’t like the sound, but we’ll get to that next Wednesday on Pop.0. Until then, check out the unboxing experience with HomePod!

iOS developer Bryan Irace wrote a great piece on Siri, and how Apple has allowed the Siri experience to fracture. Bryan Chaffin recommends it as a good read.
To set up HomePod you’ll need an iPhone or iPad running iOS 11.2.5, which is the latest update.
HomePod pre-orders, including those ordered as late as yesterday, are on their way for delivery tomorrow, February 9th.
