Alongside the release of iOS 11.4.1, the latest update to the iOS operating system, Apple has also released new 11.4.1 software that's designed for the HomePod.
The new HomePod software will be installed automatically on the HomePod after you update to iOS 11.4, but you can also manually update and check your software version by following the instructions in our HomePod software how to.
According to Apple's release notes, the 11.4.1 update for the HomePod includes "general improvements for stability and quality," with no further details provided.
The new software comes over a month after Apple released the 11.4 update for the HomePod, which introduced stereo support and multi-room audio functionality through AirPlay 2.

My HomePod also had an issue with it going hard of hearing for no reason. Sometimes my HomePod could hear me whispering from across the room, other times I would have to shout at it while standing a couple of metres away. Both of these problems are now fixed.
Happy I can update all remotely from work. Let’s see if they sound different when I get home.
