    I haven't picked up a homepod yet but have come very very close. I'm slightly still unsure whether I should get a Sonos One or Homepod considering I have a Sonos Play 5. Granted when Airplay 2 comes out, it really won't matter as I'll be able to play the same audio through either Sonos or the Homepod. Anyways, when do y'all think Certified Refurbs will pop up on Apple's website?

    It is usually 2-3 months after release date, with high-volume items appearing faster and low-volume items taking longer. So if HomePod is very low volume like doomsayers are saying, then it should be 3 months or even longer to build up enough refurb stock to list.

    Once it is available, if you find yourself missing out because they keep going out of stock, you can use a refurb tracker to send you notification when they are back in stock.

    P.S. I don't know what Jesla is talking about. Apple sells all kinds of refurb items, even relatively cheap devices like Apple TV and Airport Express. I'm sure they would sell HomePod refurbs.
