Apple plans to launch a new HomePod smart speaker by early 2023


Tech giant AppleA likely plans to release a new version of its HomePod smart speaker in late 2022 or early 2023.

According to reliable supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the tech giant is targeting the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of next year to launch the next HomePod model, 9To5mac reported.



Presumably, it’ll be a larger model than the HomePod mini, but with features that help keep the $300 cost down like its predecessor.

Apple currently sells the $99 HomePod mini as its only model. The much more impressive-sounding original HomePod was discontinued last year after a price drop from $349 to $299.

Kuo went on to say that while he sees smart speakers as “definitely one of the essential elements of the home ecosystem,” he doesn’t think Apple has figured out how to succeed in the speaker business. smart speakers.

The analyst recently predicted that the tech giant is developing a new version of the Apple TV set-top box in an effort to reduce the cost structure.
