Apple is delaying its HomePod smart speaker until 'early 2018'”

However, though our early experience with HomePod suggested it certainly sounded good, Apple wasn't really ready to release it.

Apple said Friday that it's delaying the release of its HomePod smart speaker until early 2018. "We'll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018", an Apple spokeswoman said via email.

"HomePod packs powerful speaker technology, Siri intelligence and wireless access to the entire Apple Music library into a lovely speaker that is less than 7 inches tall, can rock most any room with distortion-free music and be a helpful assistant around your home".

Apple introduced the voice-controlled HomePod in June. Siri can also handle advanced searches within the music library, so users can ask questions like "Hey Siri, who's the drummer in this?" or create a shared Up Next queue with everyone in the home.

Priced at $349 and launching in space gray and white, the 7-inch-tall HomePod features an Apple A8 chip, seven-tweeter array, and a 4-inch designed Apple woofer.
