Apple Is Still Struggling to Unload Its Launch Day HomePods - Gizmodo
May 12, 2021 56 secs
Two months ago, Apple decided to discontinue the original HomePod.

And yet, it appears the product is still available in the Apple Store—and if you buy one, you might actually get sent a HomePod from the original launch stock.

While many reviewers praised its sound quality, the initial $349 price tag was a lot considering most other smart speakers at that time were much more affordable and came with a digital assistant that didn’t suck.

It’s even harder to recommend the HomePod now that the more affordable HomePod Mini is here.

Meanwhile, the Mini is a third of the price, sounds impressive for its size, can do most of what the original can, and is competitively priced to rival smart speakers.

The device sold out on day one, and Apple itself confirmed in a statement to multiple outlets that the Mini “has been a hit since its debut last fall.” To rub salt in the wound, market research firm Omdia estimated Apple sold 2.4 million smart speakers in the U.S.

If the rest were the original HomePod, that would shake out to roughly 216,000 units sold.
