What need is there for a v2?What's taking so long for HomePod v2?
I guess they're waiting until their AI gets to the point where people won't make fun of it?
They do it with all their products and its unlikely this will be an exception. The thing with Apple though is all updates are incremental. A version 2 will likely have something neat but nothing that will upset a version 1 owner. I've never been "blow away" by the next version of a product without there being a 3+ years between releases.There is no way you'd release a product like this every year and piss off the customer base who's home speaker is now outdated. It's far different than a smart phone.
That's interesting, however a killer detail is here.
I agree. The only reason they would release a new model would be if it was a cheaper version IMO.Got 2 homepods. Pretty happy with them. I'm not sure what they'd do with a v2, it does the job just fine.
CPU speed increases and RAM upgrades are irrelevant; and i'm not sure there's been any magical advance in speaker or microphone tech in the past 2 years...
