Apple’s HomePod smart speaker can be pricey, but the quality is worth the time to research the best deal you can find. Unfortunately, as with any other Apple product, it can be difficult to find good Apple HomePod deals. As our reviews have said, however, you are paying for exceptional quality in both build and sound. Unlike many other smart speakers, this is not a piece of plastic. It’s solidly built and looks stunning on your desk or wherever you decide to place it.
The sound quality is what justifies the price. You can’t compare this to your average Amazon Echo. A high excursion woofer with a custom amplifier and the array of seven horn tweeters, each with a custom amplifier, will blow your mind.
Amazon has similar high-quality Echo speakers, but they’re just as expensive as the HomePod. We would say the HomePod is a better option, especially if you already live in the Apple ecosystem. Pair two and you have high fidelity stereo sound that will fill the whole room.
We’ve scoured the web for the best HomePod deals and found the choices a bit scarce, but we’ll keep looking for the best Apple deals. We’ve also found some accessories you might want to consider depending on how you plan to place your HomePod in the home that are currently on sale and well priced.
The best HomePod deals of the day
Does Apple HomePod work with Spotify?
Yes, but with certain limitations. You can use AirPlay to play music from Spotify from Apple device to HomePod. However, you cannot ask Siri to play Spotify. HomePod music options accessible through Siri are limited to Apple Music only.
Is the Apple HomePod portable?
No. Current generation HomePods require connection to an AC outlet to power the device. However, one way around this problem might be to use a portable power solution that includes an AC outlet. These solutions are not cheap, however.
Does Apple HomePod require Wi-Fi?
Yes. HomePod does not have an Ethernet port that allows you to use a wired connection. An 802.11ac wireless network is recommended for the best performance.
