The other day, there were reports that following the release of iOS 13.2, some HomePod users were claiming that their devices were bricked, where the device would keep rebooting itself endlessly with no end in sight. The good news is that Apple has since pulled the iOS 13.2 update, so if you haven’t updated yet, you should be good.
However, what if you did update to iOS 13.2? If you did update to iOS 13.2, Apple has since issued a warning on its website where they are warning users that they should not reset their device nor should they attempt to remove it from the Home app. Presumably, resetting or removing the HomePod from the Home app could cause the device to brick.
If your HomePod is currently working just fine, then you can count yourself lucky, but in the event that your HomePod is one of the ones affected by this issue, then it seems that Apple is warning users against trying to troubleshoot it themselves. Instead, it seems that users will just need to leave things as it is until a new update has been rolled out that will hopefully fix this problem.
For those who might have tried to troubleshoot their HomePods, Apple is asking that you get in touch with Apple Support where there is a chance you might need to bring the speakers in.
