Apple's intelligent HomePod speaker is more loudspeakers than smart. All early reviews praised his audio skills, but with his iPhone confidence and many limitations
. This and the high offer price meant that the first spokesman for Apple remained below expectations. Apple has reportedly gone as far as cutting orders from one of its manufacturers.
During the first three months of the market, the HomePod managed to secure a 10% share of sales, behind Google's 14%. But it is undoubtedly Amazon that dominates as the affordable echo makes up 73%.
The HomePod is still a pricier speaker at $ 349, accounting for 19% of revenue in February and March.
The market for smart speakers is dominated by affordable smart devices with average speaker performance, which is the opposite of HomePod. So now Apple is working hard to improve the capabilities of the HomePod Siri. An upcoming software update will bring multiroom audio support and allow the pairing of two HomePods in the stereo setup.
