Apple releases iOS 11.2.5 with Homepod support, Siri audio news and more

Author at TechGenyz Apple
iOS 11.2.5 Update

Yesterday, January 23, Apple released the new iOS 11.2.5 update and it includes numerous new stuff. The highlight is the introduction of the support for Homepod smart speaker that has the release date set on February 9.

The update mainly focuses on the Homepod speaker, although it does bring bug fixes and security improvements. Along with the support for the smart speaker, the update further involves several other features related to the HomePod. One such is the Siri audio news that’s podcast-based, and another is a new music interface. The update as well features settings-related inclusions, like Wi-Fi connectivity with the speaker, and more.

Siri audio news reporting was available in the 11.2.2 update as well, but the latest iOS offers different categories and sources of news contents that you like to ask the Assistant. The podcast news is presently available in three countries, USA, Australia, and the UK (the smart speaker will reach these markets initially). Other countries will receive the access as per Apple’s release notes of the 11.2.5 update, although the content will have English as the language. In the unsupported countries, the feature apparently remains incomplete.

iOS New Update

Additionally, the update gets you separate audio tiles for different audio sources in the control center. This means that apart from Apple TV and other devices, you will have specific audio source controls for the HomePod speaker. The best part? You get to control multiple audio sources simultaneously.

Among introductions, there is a VoiceOver accessibility feature that tells you playback destinations, and even the battery level of AirPod. Other features of the iOS update include fixes for the Mail app, Phone app, Messages and CarPlay.
