Alongside the release of iOS 12, Apple is purportedly planning to update its HomePod smart speaker with support for making and answering calls, setting multiple timers, finding an iPhone, and more. iGeneration reports that the software update will address many of the complaints users have with the device.

One of the big news of this update will concern the phone. You'll be able to make phone calls from your HomePod, answer a call, redial a number, search your call log, listen to messages on your voicemail, or call the emergency. It is currently unclear if FaceTime Audio will be supported. However, it will be possible to use the "Locate my iPhone" feature from the Apple speaker! Finally, the HomePod can manage several timers at a time.

The site also describes a new feature called "Force Fix your Wi-Fi network" which reportedly forces your HomePod to connect to the same network as your iPhone if they aren't already on the same one.

Other improvements include the ability to manage your calendar in French and better knowledge of food, nutrition, celebrities, and culture.

Apple is expected to release iOS 12 this September. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
