New HomePod Coming 'Fairly Soon' [Gurman]

Apple is readying a new HomePod for release 'fairly soon', according to Apple reporter Mark Gurman.

In a recent tweet, Gurman teased, "The next HomePod should also be coming fairly soon."

This follows his newsletter report that said Apple plans to release a new full size HomePod at a lower price point.

The return of the larger HomePod size is still set for this year, but I wouldn't expect anything revolutionary about it. Look for a lower price, an updated touch control panel on the top and the S8 chip from the latest Apple Watches in a design similar to the model from 2018.

Currently, Apple still sells the HomePod mini but customers have complained that the device doesn't provide the same audio performance as the larger HomePod did. HomePod mini retails for $99; however, you can find it a few dollars off at BHPhoto.

Although Apple did release a new MacBook Pro and new Mac mini today, we've not seen signs of a HomePod update just yet. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS to be notified when the new smart speaker gets announced.
