Apple has added AirPlay 2 support into iTunes as part of this week's macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 update. The rollout also includes an update for the Apple Homepod smart speakers with version number 11.4.1. All of these updates majorly bring bug fixes, software optimisation, and the odd new feature to Apple's platforms spread across mobiles, tablets, computers, speakers, home entertainment devices, and smartwatches. Let's see what's new in the latest updates rolling out on your devices now.

As Apple released tvOS version 12 in June, it is expected 11.4.1 will be the last update to this version. tvOS will be released to the public this fall and is now available to developers and public beta testers. The tvOS update added AirPlay 2 support and introduced plenty of audio-focused improvements. It also reportedly fixes an issue with the mail app that prevented some users from moving a mail from Gmail to another service provider. Then click on the listing and enter your Apple ID details.

Apple had first released tvOS 11.4 and watchOS 4.3 last month. Click on Continue and wait until the update automatically installs.

It's highly recommended that you download the update right away if you've been having issues with Apple's speaker. You can check out our detailed instructions on how to update HomePod firmware here: How To Update Apple HomePod Software / Firmware To Latest Version.
