A new HomePod expected in 2023?

0 0

Launched in November 2020, at the same time as the MacBook Air, Pro and Mac mini equipped with the M1 chip, the HomePod mini had made a discreet arrival on the market. This small smart speaker, sold at the very attractive price of $99 by Apple, has found its audience in less than two years.

A public satisfied with the quality-price ratio of the product, but which would tend to ask always more from the small connected ball. But according to analyst Mark Gurman, journalist for Bloomberg, it is possible that a new HomePod will see the light of day in the coming months.

Apple is working well on a HomePod

Indeed, in the last publication of his “Power On” newsletter, the journalist explains that a product with the internal code name B620 should correspond to a HomePod of similar size to the first model. The latter would then have much better audio performance than the mini model released in 2020.

According to the latest rumors, this new HomePod should benefit from a latest generation screen, which will allow the small connected life companion to support multi-touch. This would be a great first for a product of this kind from Apple.

As a reminder, this function should provide access to new features and configure more gestures. The most telling example is undoubtedly our smartphone screen, or even the trackpad of a Mac which uses multi-touch to navigate between the pages open on the computer.

A multi-touch HomePod in 2023?

With such a feature, Apple is paving the way for simpler controls. It would then be possible to change music simply by sliding two fingers along the screen. If today no functionality related to multi-touch on a HomePod has yet been talked about, that could well change in the coming weeks.

Apple brand analyst Ming-Chi Kuo assures that Apple is preparing to launch a next-generation HomePod in 2023, probably during the year’s opening conference in the spring.
