Apple today has released a new update for the HomePod and HomePod mini, with software version 15.5.1. This release fixes an issue that could cause music to stop playing after a small period of time. It is not clear how many users had this issue, but this update likely addresses some other bugs and makes some general improvements too.

HomePods can be updated via the Home app on iOS, iPadOS and macOS, or they do handle this process automatically unless it is disabled.
