Verizon offers the iPhone 13 with 5G wireless on their network. If you've purchased your iPhone directly from Verizon, you're probably not having 5G issues.

The process to reset a HomePod differs slightly from restarting the HomePod, which preserves data and settings.
It may be a rare occurrence, but the HomePod and HomePod mini can freeze up and become unresponsive to any input. When this happens, there is no reset button to press or power switch to toggle. Luckily, there are ways to power cycle the HomePod without losing any settings or data in the process.
