Apple releases iOS 11.2.5 and watchOS 4.2.2 updates

Apple releases iOS 11.2.5 and watchOS 4.2.2 updates”

That delay is finally over, and HomePod will hit store shelves and ship to customers the second Friday of February. It's clear that watchOS 4.2.2 is important exclusively for the security fixes noted above.

Apple didn't spend much time focusing on the smart aspects of the speaker when it was announced, but it changed its tune with its announcement today, mentioning its digital assistant Siri 23 times in its press release. The feature uses The Washington Post as a default, according to 9to5Mac, but you can switch over to streams from NPR, CNN and Fox News as well. There is no word on the mass availability of Siri as a newsreader on iOS devices. It's also likely that French language support is holding back the device's Canadian release, though this is just speculation.

It's been a while since Apple announced its entry into the smart speaker space in the form of the high-end Apple HomePod. HomePod can also be used as a speakerphone with iPhone for crisp and clear audio quality.

The HomePod will be compatible with iPhones as old as iPhone 5S and will be able to play music from Apple Music, Apple said Tuesday in a news release.

Although all of these updates are generally minor, the increased emphasis on security fixes and the severity of recent vulnerabilities suggest that you should update sooner rather than later. Anyone running iOS 11 on their device can download the software as an over-the-air update.

Apple is pitching HomePod as a premium surround-sound music speaker with Siri voice controls. The current watchOS build is 15S542, while the new tvOS build is 15K552.

ITunes is now created to work with HomePod.

HomePod will rely on Siri to answer all commands. There are in the watchOS 4.2.2 update however, including those in audio, Bluetooth, kernel, and WebKit.

The news comes after some commentators state that Apple delayed the launch of its smart speaker, because of production issues. Your iPhone will to be in close proximity to the Apple Watch and will need to be on Wi-Fi. You can install it on the Apple TV 4K and fourth-generation Apple TV via Settings System Software Updates Update Software.

"I think when people listen to it, they are going to be shocked over the quality of the sound, and of course it does a lot of other things", Apple CEO Tim Cook said a year ago at the WWDC, according to BGR.
