I never, ever used such buggy and faulty audio devices as our four Apple HomePod mini at home. Here are the things driving me literally insane:
- Audio volume is never synchronised across those four HomePod mini. Every trick I try is useless. Apple is all about logic interfaces but with the HomePod some GUI developer lost his brain. Yes … sure … I want every HomePod in every room on a slightly different volume:
If you accidentally start a HomePod mini – e.g. dusting off the device – it does not start with the same last Apple Radio station at the same volume. No, it starts with some random song at high volume!!! That makes so much sense, Apple.
HomePod mini appear and disappear at random. Can't connect, can't find device, no music streaming, etc.
Handover between MacBook and iPhones is buggy.
The product is full of bugs. Until recently I could not stream from my MacBook M1 and it was fixed only in the latest update.
Early mornings I listen to Apple Radio on my iPhone, because it is too complicated to just start the radio in the bathroom and kitchen. Well done, Apple, well done…
