Apple’s HomePod Releasing Late

Apparently, due to some development issue, Apple has decided to launch its HomePod on 20178 rather than December, 2017.

By early 2018, those HomePods will be available in the consumer markets of US, US and Australia.

Apple wants to take on its rivals, Amazon and Google in the growing market for home devices that use AI to help consumers.

Apple has sent some statements to the news saying, “a little more time before it’s ready for our customers”.

This delay of launching will cost Apple a huge sell since during holiday season customers buy many gadgets as a gift.

The gadget was first unveiled in June this year when Apple said it would go on sale in the US for $349 (£265). In the UK it was expected to cost £350.

To give a good competition to other smart speaker like – Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Assistant, Sonos, Microsoft and some others that manufacture similar gadgets.

Like them it was designed to play music and act as a hands-free helper letting owners set timers, maintain shopping lists and get reports about the news, weather and other subjects.

Since Apple unveiled the HomePod both Google and Amazon have added new models to their ranges of smart speakers, intensifying the competition with Apple.

Writing in Engadget, associate editor Jon Fingle said the delay was “not surprising” given that the HomePod was Apple’s first try at a smart speaker. “The HomePod isn’t necessarily in trouble,” he said. “but it may face a tougher battle than it did beforehand.”
