Apple pushed iOS 16.3.1 and iPadOS 16.3.1 to users on Monday with bug fixes and performance improvements. For example, the iOS 16.3.1 release contains bug fixes and performance improvements, including a fix for iCloud settings.

After a period of server-side issues, updates for tvOS 16.3.2 and HomePod 16.3.2 are also out, and both fix a problem with Siri. Some users had reported that asking Siri for smart home requests sometimes failed.

Both updates also contain general performance and stability improvements.

The tvOS build is 20K672.

Monday's update arrives after Apple updated tvOS and the HomePod software to version 16.3.1 on February 6. The update notes also mentioned fixes to stability and performance.

Each device will eventually receive the updates automatically, but users can manually install them on an Apple TV via the Settings app. The Home app may be used to control the HomePod software update.

    Who’s going first to try it? I’m tempted, but don’t want to risk it on day 1…

    I tried it with my HomePod mini stereo pair and it completed successfully. No problem. 

    I had a minor hiccup with one Apple TV, one of 4, which failed to reboot after downloading the update image.  I had to manually restart the ATV through the settings app in tvOS and the installation proceeded as expected. 

    So far so good.

    Read this and went to update my four, only to find they’d already been done. First time I recall that being the case. Seem ok so far. Hopefully starts understanding me and recognising who I am again.

    Interesting.

    A test for the past 30 minutes of playing from the Music app on my MacBook Air and AirPlaying to a single HomePod mini is glitch-less.

    Odd.

    Makes the HomePod minis as standalone-ish devices less useful.

    Was this ok prior to 16.3.2?

    A couple of OG HomePods and Minis here, mostly used as stereo pairs, polis ATV 4K. All updated flawlessly. So far, definitely addressed the „have to say it twice“ issue. One observation, though: Using HomePod to pause/resume the ATV stooped working (says nothing playing). However, turning the ATV on and off does still work.

    Disney+ is no longer in the up next section of the TV app after this update. There is also no options for Disney+ in the settings app for the Apple TV. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Oh, no! That's one of my most used features (pausing/playing via OG HP Siri). Thanks for the heads-up — I'll hold off the update for now...
