audioOS 17.3

Juli Clover (release notes):

Apple does not specify what’s included in the HomePod 17.3 software, and the generic release notes only say that it brings stability and performance improvements.

I saw a regression in that the Home app continued showing that the update was “Installing…” long after it had finished. I had to close and re-open the HomePod to see that it had completed.

Of course, the first thing I tried was playing some of my old iTunes Store purchases. Unfortunately, the same problematic ones still fail, saying that it couldn’t find them on Apple Music.

Next, I tried playing an album that had worked before, and HomePod said that it would play it but then said, “Sorry, there was a problem with Apple Music.”

So HomePod still does not work as advertised.
