Why Apple keeps dicking around with this is beyond me.
I'll have to do more tests, but I think this update is as bad as the mediocre OS 16.4 update.
Apple, if you do read all the complaints on the Internet, please rollback to OS 15.7. It was working well. OS 16 is just a huge mistake that should have never been release. 16.5 is another proof that it isn’t working. I bought HomePods to listen to music. Not to restart them every day multiple times per day!
