Gurman: Apple might launch a new HomePod next year

Gurman: Apple might launch a new HomePod next year: Apple looks to be working on several products that should be unveiled shortly. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, one of them may be a new HomePod model. This will replace the first-generation HomePod, which was retired last year. The specifics are shown below.

New HomePod is on the way!

Apple will release the next HomePod in 2023, Gurman recently announced in his Power On newsletter. The S8 chip, which will also power the Watch 8 Series this year, is reported to power the next model, code-named “B620.”

In terms of specifications, the CPU is anticipated to be comparable to the S7 processor. However, we don’t yet know how this will stack up against the A8 chipset featured in the original HomePod.

Despite this, the S5 processor in the HomePod mini, Apple’s sole smart speaker model, might still benefit greatly from this update.

Additionally, it is predicted that the next HomePod would have a similar visual aesthetic to the outgoing model and maintain a similar audio quality. More enhancements and display-related updates are anticipated. Additionally, the present is a multi-touch feature.

There are currently no public specifics, including the cost. However, given that the first HomePod was pricey, we may anticipate that the new model will be in a more accessible pricing range. Recall that the 2018 HomePod’s initial suggested retail price was $349. It arrived in India in 2020 and cost Rs 19,990.

Please keep checking back for additional information as we get it. According to Gurman, the AirPods Pro 2 will reportedly have an upgraded processor and greater audio performance.

Additionally anticipated this year is the release of the second-generation AirPods Pro 2. According to rumours, it could include a fresh design, better ANC support, and other upgrades.

We’ll have to wait and see how Apple’s audio ideas turn out. As soon as we learn more about this, we’ll update you. Please express your opinions on the prospect of a new HomePod in the comments section below till then.
