Apple Pushes HomePod Release to 2018

HomePod is only the second speaker in the history of Apple.

Earlier this year, Apple announced that it would be releasing its first smart speaker called the HomePod in late 2017.

Apple introduced the voice-controlled HomePod in June. "We'll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018", an Apple spokeswoman said via email. This sits alongside a 4in Apple-built subwoofer and a seven tweeter array with precision acoustic horns and directional control. HomePod, Apple Music and Siri deliver the best music experience in the home that streams ad-free directly to HomePod.

The speaker also features "spatial awareness", which allows it to automatically tune the sound to the space that the speaker is in, along with a six-microphone array.

Apple issued an official statement to TechCrunch and other news outlets today saying that the release of the HomePod would be delayed until 2018.

There are a few things to note here about this, the first is that the delay pushes this past the holiday shopping season.
