With a lot competitors from simply Amazon and Google alone, we’re certain that many are curious as to how Apple’s HomePod audio system are doing. In spite of everything with seemingly much less performance in comparison with Amazon’s Echo and Google House and with the next price ticket, who’re Apple’s clients?
Seems that analysts look like fairly pessimistic concerning the HomePod’s gross sales. In response to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he predicts that Apple will only sell about 2 million HomePods this year. 2 million feels like a variety of items, however not when you think about that earlier predictions had estimated that Apple might promote as many as 10 million items within the machine’s first yr.
This echoes an earlier report from Bloomberg which claims that some Apple Shops had been solely promoting 10 HomePods a day. Kuo additionally goes on to state that because of the lackluster gross sales that Apple is now contemplating introducing a low-cost mannequin. Like we mentioned, the HomePod might be probably the most costly good audio system out there as we speak, a market which is crammed with extra inexpensive units from Amazon and Google (Echo Dot, House Mini).
Nonetheless whether or not or not Apple will undergo with their plans stays to be seen, however for now it doesn’t appear to be the HomePod is doing in addition to Apple would have preferred.
