As a chinese user, I ordered an Apple HomePod via Apple officially website. After three weeks, I got my HomePod. There are some problems for using of HomePod in China.
I try servery times on this thing with my Chinese (region) account. It couldn’t work. Always noticed me the error 301009. Right after, I connected with my American (region) account. The Error 301014. I check my itunes ID and change the pay method to Paypal. It works immediately.
I have all my apply music and iCloud subscription on my Chinese account. My solution is to switch to Chinese Account after using the US account finishing the initialization.
Another solution for Error 301014. DO NOT select “Enable Personal Requests” (this is off by default so do not toggle it on)
