Apple today has released a new software update for the HomePod and HomePod mini, with version 15.6. This goes alongside iOS 15.6, iPadOS 15.6, macOS Monterey 12.5, and tvOS 15.6 – all of which were released today.

Not much has been added, with support for Siri voice recognition support in new languages and countries. Support has been added in Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese.

Release Notes

“Software version 15.6 adds Siri voice recognition support in Mandarin Chinese (China mainland, Taiwan), Cantonese (China mainland, Hong Kong), and Japanese (Japan). This update also includes performance and stability improvements.”

HomePod and HomePod mini can be updated manually by going to the Home app, otherwise they’ll update themselves in the coming days.
