Apple actualiza las especificaciones del HomePod y confirma las fuentes de audio compatibles con el dispositivo
We’ve known for days that the HomePod will appear in stores next Friday, February 9, with reservations open for two weeks. And it’s possible that the level of those reservations will be high, because the shipments of the orders from the company’s website are starting to be delayed towards February 13th .
At the moment this is happening on Apple’s British website , with the two colours of the speaker. On the US and Australian websites it is still being sent with an expected arrival this Friday 9th, although we are likely to start seeing a spread of these delays as well.
These changes may be a sign that demand is being somewhat higher than expected from Cupertino, which had a number of units ready that may already be running out in the UK. We only need to remember how the AirPods were unavailable for weeks: everyone wanted them and Apple did not expect such a high demand everywhere.
For the time being, a solution for the most impatient can be to resort to any Apple Authorized Dealer . There are several in the UK, and they all say they will have the HomePod in stock as of this Friday. We’ll see how well this speaker is received once it’s available for purchase without reservation, and when it will be possible to reserve it in more countries.
