Apple HomePod Delayed To 2018

Apple HomePod Delayed To 2018

HomePod is Apple's answer to Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Apple is expected to sell the HomePod for $349, a considerable premium above Amazon's Echo, now on its second generation, which sells for $99.99 on Amazon, and the Amazon Show, which includes a display screen, which sets customers back $229.

Apple first debuted the HomePod in June at its annual WWDC developer conference.




Apple has pushed back the release of its smart speaker, the Home Pod - now saying the device isn't expected until next year. Apple's HomePod is aware of how big the room is where it is being placed, and adjusts the sound accordingly for the best experience. Google has also updated its speaker line with the compact Google Home Mini and is set to launch its own premium speaker product, the Google Home Max, in December.

It'll cost £349 ($349) when it finally does ship early next year.

The Homepod is a cylindrical smart speaker that features seven-speaker arrayu of tweeters, a four-inch subwoofer, and a six-microphone array. If HomePod isn't shipping by March we may be waiting until late June before it shows up on store shelves. With a device like a smart speaker, which packages not only music but voice control and home automation into a single device, there's no shortage of places where hold-ups could be introduced. We'll let you know when Apple decides to release the HomePod.
