Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa were some of the most popular items in 2017, and it’s no surprise that Apple has finally entered the home assistant arena. Apple’s HomePod smart speaker is now available (In the U.S) to pre-order through the Apple Store. The new home assistant speaker retails for $349 USD and is expected to be shipped on starting on February 9, 2018. The HomePod is available in black or white and has a built-in Siri, six microphones, HomeKit support and sound optimization.
If you’ve been waiting for the Apple’s equivalent to the Google Home you may have noticed that the launch has been delayed. Well for Canadian’s unfortunately, the launch will be even more delayed as Apple has not yet pointed to a date when Canadians can get their own HomePod.
