Apple Smart Home: HomePod Retired, What Should We Expect Next?
Apple, the smart home tech giant, recently announced that it will be retiring the HomePod, a smart speaker powered by Siri, which had made a late entry into the smart home speaker segment. It will still provide software updates and product support for existing HomePod owners. This also means that users will have only one Apple option to fall back on – the HomePod Mini. With rivals having multiple speakers in the market, it will be interesting to see what Apple comes up with. It has been rumored that Apple might launch a product in an upcoming product launch event. In the smart home segment, there have not been many improvements in terms of device upgrades from Apple. On the other hand, most rivals have caught up with the latest technologies.
Apple has shown interest in the smart home in the last year or so.
Hence, it will be crucial to see what path Apple takes in the smart home space which is quite hot in the market. Though Apple might not sell its own smart bulbs, plugs, and switches, it is sure to be interested in the smart speaker and the display bucket. Only time will tell what the future of Apple is in the smart home space.
