Apple’s HomePod is in trouble.
Apple Stores have seen their inventories of the flagship smart speaker gather dust as demand has slowed, according to Bloomberg.
The $349 home speaker — which has Apple’s Siri voice assistant built in and is meant to compete with Amazon’s Alexa-powered Echo speakers — has seen such soft sales that Apple has slashed orders from its Chinese suppliers, the Bloomberg report noted.
It’s very expensive, high priced and very late to the game. I think Apple might be surprised they usually can release anything and people will buy they might be in for a shocker.
