See if these instructions let you pair it again:


  1. Hold your iPhone or iPad close to your HomePod.
  2. Tap Set Up.
  3. Choose the HomeKit Room you want to use for HomePod (if you have one set up).
  4. Choose whether or not you want to enabled Personal Requests (allow Siri to read your Messages and access your Reminders and Notes whenever your iOS device is on the network.)
  5. Tap Agree to agree to the terms and conditions.
