Why Apple is Killing the HomePod

Apple has just discontinued the HomePod. Not the new mini. The Biggie. The OG. And I’m going to tell you why they did it, and why I hope they’ll bring it back in a newer, better, more final form.

From Apple:

HomePod mini has been a hit since its debut last fall, offering customers amazing sound, an intelligent assistant, and smart home control all for just $99. We are focusing our efforts on HomePod mini. We are discontinuing the original HomePod, it will continue to be available while supplies last through the Apple Online Store, Apple Retail Stores, and Apple Authorized Resellers. Apple will provide HomePod customers with software updates and service and support through Apple Care.
