A few years ago I was on here complaining that my HomePod lost its bass. The replacement Apple gave me was going well until I went to put the 15.1 update on it and it totally bricked it. It won’t power up - no sounds, no lights, no response at all.
I’m super bummed because it was by far my favourite Apple device. Such deep, rich sound, and combined with my Apple TV I was using it as my bedroom speaker for my gaming consoles as well.
I’ve put a HomePod mini there in its place, which is ok I guess, but it isn’t in the same league sound-wise.
I’m going to try my luck with Apple but I imagine this time they’ll want to sell me a replacement, if they have any left in stock, and I’m reluctant to do that given the short lifespan they seem to have (or at least in my case).
Farewell OG HomePod you will be sorely missed.
