How to factory reset HomePod (Step-to-step guide)

The HomePod is unimaginably simple to set up. As we’ve delineated previously, you simply hold your iPhone close it and the blending procedure in a split second starts. What’s marginally less clear, be that as it may, is the manner by which to reset your HomePod.

Apple says that the initial step you should take if your HomePod isn’t reacting is unplugging it from control and connecting it back to. On the off chance that that doesn’t take care of your issues, or if something different isn’t right, you may need to totally reset it.

Apple’s help site features the situations when you should reset your HomePod:

  • HomePod isn’t responding after a restart
  • You want to reset HomePod to factory settings
  • You need to send HomePod in for service
  • You want to sell or giveaway your HomePod

There are two approaches to totally reset HomePod. The main strategy, and apparently the most straightforward, is to utilize the Home application on your iOS gadget:

  1. Open the Home app and make sure your iOS device is signed in with the same Apple ID used to set up your HomePod.
  2. In the “Home” or “Rooms” tab, find your HomePod and press and hold
  3. Choose “Details”
  4. Scroll to the bottom and tap “Remove Accessory”

After you do this, HomePod will take a few minutes to restart and eradicate itself, after which you can start the matching procedure as ordinary.

In the event that your HomePod isn’t showing up in the Home application, there is one other approach to reset HomePod with the equipment itself. Here’s the manner by which:

  1. Unplug HomePod and plug it back in
  2. Press and hold the top of HomePod, keeping your finger on top of the device at all times. If you lift your finger, you’ll have to start over.
  3. After you press and hold on the top of HomePod, the spinning white light at the top of the device will turn red and Siri will tell you that your HomePod is about to reset.
  4. Keep pressing the top of HomePod until you hear three beeps.

In the event that neither of those techniques work for resetting your HomePod, or resetting doesn’t settle your issues, your most logical option is taking the gadget to your nearby Apple Store.
