HomePod release delayed until 2018

After promising a December release, Apple has pushed that back to next year, 9to5Mac reports. In a statement confirming the delay, Apple said, “We can’t wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple’s breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it’s ready for our customers.” The statement only said “early 2018” for a release date, and it’s far from the first time Apple has delayed a launch to make sure it got everything right. Last October Apple pushed back the release of its AirPods, finally releasing the product in December.
