How to Factory Reset HomePod Mini

If you're having issues with your HomePod mini, returning it to factory settings is a good first step. You can reset your HomePod mini in three easy ways: using the Home app on an iPhone or iPad, using a PC with a mouse and keyboard, or by unplugging it and plugging it back in. If the first technique fails, move on to the second, and if it doesn't work either, then attempt the third method.

If you want to reset one of your HomePod tiny speakers, make sure you don't group them together.
