Apple HomePod Is Now Available to Order – First Deliveries to Commence from February 9
Apple’s smart speaker, the HomePod is now available to order in a total of three countries, including the U.S. and no, the release date waiting period is not going to be as excruciating as when consumers had to wait for the iPhone X.
Deliveries for the HomePod Starting From February 9 - Smart Speaker Can Be Used Anywhere in the World
The HomePod is available in the colors Space Gray and White and if you wanted to know the pricing details for the three different regions, they have been listed below.
- $349 in the United States
- $499 in Australia
- £319 in the United Kingdom
It will take a while before the HomePod pops up on online retailers but there will be advantages of using the smart speaker, irrespective of where you live. The Siri currently supports American, Australian, and British varieties of English at the moment so even if your second language is English, you will be able to use it without facing issues. Apple has stated that it will be adding more languages through future software updates, including French and German this spring, so you will have to wait for those.
The new smart speaker comes with a seven-speaker array of tweeters along with a four-inch upward facing subwoofer. An Apple A8 SoC powers it and the company Apple has designed it in a way that the speaker adjusts to its surroundings, which is known as ‘spatial awareness’ that lets the speaker tune the sound according to space. It has advanced echo cancellation that allows Siri to understand if people are standing near the device or across the room. It adjusts the volume accordingly.
HomePod is also compatible with Apple Music and thanks to its six-microphone array, and we do not believe that it will not be able to listen in on you when you summon Siri. You will just have to be a little vocal. If you want to place your order, you can click on any link given below.
