If you have a HomePod or HomePod Mini I’m sure you have found how easy it is to ask Siri some simple questions. The recently released HomePod Software 16.3 now supports Find My, which means you can ask Siri to locate one of your devices or a friend or family member who shares their location with you, in addition to the ability to find your iPhone which it was already able to do. If you have a HomePod, ask Siri “Where is my iPhone?” Siri will respond by causing your iPhone to play a sound. Or ask where someone is—Siri will respond with more details for nearby people and city locations for those far away. Or ask “Hey Siri, where are my keys?” and if you have an AirTag attached to your keys they will play a progressively louder beep. It also works with AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2. Just ask Siri “Where are my AirPods?”
These of course are all things you can ask Siri if you have your iPhone handy, but being able to simply shout out to your HomePod is really convenient and you’re rushing to find your keys before you leave home.
