Apple's iOS 11.4 could finally make the HomePod worth buying

30 May 2018

You can download the iOS 11.4 update on your iPhone 5s and above models, iPad Air and above models, iPad mini 2 and above models, or the sixth generation iPod touch. Here's a detailed look at the new features on iOS 11.4. It's built for video and audio but it's the audio side that everyone's interested in as it means you can pair two Apple Homepod speakers, arguably a feature that really should have been available day one of the Homepod's release. AirPlay is the promised update to this standard, and it brings multi-room audio support. Apple has said it wanted to make sure the features worked well for users before releasing them. Apple TV running tvOS 11.4 will also now show up in the Home app on an iOS device as long as that device is running iOS 11.4. First and foremost, iOS 11.4 adds "Messages on iCloud", which Apple first announced late a year ago. Alternatively, you can go to your account from Settings and then move to iCloud to enable the Messages option.

IOS 11.4 is out, and it brings with it a feature that was first promised to us in iOS 11.3 created to help streamline messaging between devices. In addition, it includes special (PRODUCT) RED wallpapers for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices. He also thinks it will focus on ARKit technology to make for a more compelling user experience. It also supports Messages in iCloud.
