HomePod Unboxing & Review | Space Gray Edition

by birtanpublished on November 6, 2020

Hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple geek today I want to unbox for you guys Apple's brand new home pod this is Apple's first take on a brand new product that directly competes with Amazon Alexa and Google home as you guys can see this is a very different product from what we're used to seeing from Apple in fact it is their very first Bluetooth speaker and taking off the top lid here you can see that there is quite a bit of a strange design I'd say if it wasn't for the fabric material around the home pod you wouldn't be able to tell this was a speaker it's more of a

Pill box now the one I have for you guys today is obviously the space grade model it's gonna come with some instructions one singular Apple sticker which is very interesting and you'll notice here that there's an extension cord for this device so it does not operate off a battery power this is also in a fabric II material so it's not so breakable like your phone charger but now let's go ahead and move on to the most important part of this review and that will be the home pod as a speaker this will be a little bit difficult to describe on video because you guys had different

Speakers I'm using a different microphone before the record I am using a blue Yeti microphone that is on the omnidirectional setting and it's gonna go ahead and record our home pod in this video but first things first let's go ahead and plug this thing into the wall like I said it is not battery-operated once you plug it in you have this little loading light from the LEDs on top of the home pod and you get the sound and once that light starts blinking white as you guys can see right here that is what is telling you to pair it up with an iOS device yes right now this is only

Compatible with iOS devices with the latest version of iOS and by that I mean iOS eleven point two point five and higher so you need to update in order to set up the home pod jailbreakers beware luckily I do have a device on eleven point three beta and as you guys can see here you get a very similar splash screen just like for the air pods so I'm just gonna go through the setup here it is super simple super quick extremely seamless with iOS and here it'll ask you which room you're at home pod is in and you can actually set it to do the same things that your iPhone could I don't

Recommend that but it as possible I'm gonna agree to the terms and conditions transfer settings from my Apple ID and we can wait a couple moments and this thing will be fully set up and you'll know when this thing sets up because you'll get these sounds hi I'm Siri welcome to home pod you can't tell but I'm waving to get my attention say hey Siri hey Siri what can you do I can do lots of things like turn on the lights give you a news update and tell you about the weather now you try say hey Siri play some music hey Siri play some

Music okay here's a personal radio station built just for you starting with funk town America remember any time you have a question just say hey Siri it sounds pretty good I'm gonna try not to get a copyright strike on this video well let's go ahead and try some other songs hey Siri uh-huh play play on playing play on Ostrom remix by epidemic sound you tell me two pieces or doesn't come hey Siri turn volume to 100% that's very loud are you sure yes fifty percent this thing can get pretty loud and you can adjust the

Volume by the on-screen touch controls or just by saying those magic words you can also double tap in this area to skip a song triple tapping allows you to rewind to the previous song and tapping allows you to pause and play tap II and holding gets you to Siri what's the weather it's currently partly cloudy and 48 degrees in Napa expect cloudy skies starting tonight this home pod works in a very interesting way because it does have Bluetooth 5.0 so it technically can band together with other Bluetooth devices but as you guys can see here it's not

Even in my Bluetooth settings right now it only works through airplay on iOS or Apple TV devices there is going to be a stereo mode with two or more home pods coming soon in an update this also means that as long as you're playing from an airplay device you can use Spotify and other music services although your primary mode of music it's still going to be Apple music hey Siri play rather be by clean bandit okay playing rather be featuring Jess Glynne by clean bandit but anyways guys that is my quick look into the unboxing of the home pod and some of its capabilities

What do you guys think be sure you let me know in the comments and I will see you guys in the next video peace rather be
