Here's a complete tutorial on how you can enable Messages in iCloud in iOS 11 / iOS 11.4 and how you can use it too.

In a press release, Apple said that AirPlay 2 also implements some important under-the-hood performance improvements, too. Just launch the Settings app, tap on General and scroll down to Software Update.

The iOS 11.4 update should be available for download on your iOS devices right now.

You can assign left and right channels to HomePods, but you can't control the left-right balance between them. Here's a rundown of the features.

If a user deletes a message on one device, that message will be wiped from all devices instantly. Also, it is advisable to back up your data before beginning the update process.




But Apple still has a lot to do to catch up with its peers, as the company only sold 600,000 HomePod speakers in the first three months of this year, according to Strategy Analytics - figures that were dwarfed by four million Amazon Echo sales, and 2.4 million Google Home speaker sales. Apple's new HomePod speaker also uses the protocol, but with AirPlay 2, which has just arrived, multi-room audio is now possible.

You'll now need to select which HomePods you'd like to pair.

But when we reviewed the £319 HomePod, we stated that most of its teething problems could be fixed, in particular the lack of stereo pairing and potential benefits of AirPlay 2. Deleting a message on one device would remove it from all your devices.

Messages in iCloud moves all those messages-including attachments and photos shared in those messages-from Apple devices to iCloud. Basically, with iOS 11.4, messages - either iMessage or SMS - can now be stored to iCloud. That now changes with iOS 11.4. From the Control Center on your iOS device, you'll be able to see a full list of compatible speakers (including HomePod) and pick and choose which should be playing the tunes. It allows all Messages sent and received in Apple's messaging apps to be synced to all devices synced to that account.

For the Mac, go to Preferences within the Messages app and click the checkbox next to Enable Messages in iCloud.
