I never mentioned new iPhone hardware. Mostly likely Sonos did not have early access to that. But iOS 11 has been in public beta for several months now and in developer beta even longer. Should have had plenty of time to get the app updated.

DarkClown, that was likely a reference to the belief that Sonos is opting to release an update which supports both iOS11 and the new iPhones rather than two updates.

... the slightest hint of criticism of Sonos brings out the torch and pitchfork crowd, red-faced and foaming at the mouth.

This is absolutely true and it probably hurts Sonos reputation even though those carrying the pitchforks don't work for Sonos.

Somewhat disingenuous this statement.

Android isn't the problem - In fact I'm quite sure the software works on Android. The issue is, as Sonos have told us, that the sheer number of different microphones has made ensuring the correct sonic calibration impossible. this is not, howsoever much you'd wish it so, a trivial problem.


It's not rocket science, you just get an OEM to supply a standard microphone unit that plugs in. Every Android phone ever sold will accept a microphone input in the 3.5mm jack. One microphone for all, one calibration, works for every phone on sale.

AV suppliers like Yamaha and Denon have used plug-in microphone calibration for years, this isn't a ground breaking idea. It just needs somebody to care about non-Apple owners.

Quite... And it should be cheap - it's only a mic, after all...

Precisely, would like cost little more than the ethernet cable they put in the box with most players and nobody really needs.
