Another Report Claims Apple Has Slashed HomePod Orders

Another Report Claims Apple Has Slashed HomePod Orders

Posted April 12, 2018 at 3:26pm by iClarified
Following a report from Bloomberg yesterday, the China Times claims Apple has slashed orders for its HomePod smart speaker due to slower than expected sales.

The original forecast for the second quarter shipment of the supply chain was about 500,000 units per month, but it was reduced to 200,000 units in March. It is expected that shipments will be made in the second quarter in a single month. 200,000 units or less.

While it's difficult to verify the accuracy of these reports, Apple's HomePod does come with a high price tag ($349) and substantially fewer smart features than its rivals. We expect Apple to continually add to its functionality as time goes on, making the HomePod a more attractive purchase.

I love my Homepod. No one can say it isn't the best smart speaker on the market. Does Siri need to get better? Absolutely

this is probably bs since you cant even get it in Europe yet last I checked, they can't ramp up production fast enough? releasing before stereo pairing support and Airplay 3?cmon? and please don't compare it to bluetooth with 1% off bitrate and no range

No cause it's trash! Who wants that with only Apple music functionality, the Logitech speakers with Alexa is easier set up and pairs with up to 50 total It's not even convenient
