Apple has announced a new 2nd-generation full-sized HomePod, priced at $299 featuring enhanced Siri capabilities, support for Spatial Audio, the S7 chip, and more, available to pre-order today ahead of availability beginning Friday, February 3.
Ahead of the arrival of the new device, Apple has shared a new video titled ‘Introducing the all-new HomePod,’ touting the new features coming to the speaker, including a four-inch high-excursion woofer, five tweeters, four microphones, an S7 chip for computational audio, and support for Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos.
“Leveraging our audio expertise and innovations, the new HomePod delivers rich, deep bass, natural mid-range, and clear, detailed highs,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With the popularity of HomePod mini, we’ve seen growing interest in even more powerful acoustics achievable in a larger HomePod. We’re thrilled to bring the next generation of HomePod to customers around the world.”
