When the HomePod launches, it will receive regular updates much like Apple’s iOS devices, Macs, Apple TVs, and Apple Watch models. Apple hasn’t shared details on how these updates will be installed, but some digging into the iOS code by 9to5Mac has revealed that updates will be available via Apple’s dedicated Home app for HomeKit devices.

iOS 11 is now installed on 52 percent of iOS devices, according to new statistics that Apple shared today on its App Store support page for developers.
This is the first time that Apple has updated its App Store support page since the release of iOS 11, and the first look we’ve had at official installation numbers.

With iOS 11 installed on 52 percent of devices, 38 percent continue to run iOS 10. 10 percent are still on an earlier version of iOS. [...]
