Apple’s HomePod has only been out a month, but if reports from Taiwan's Economic Daily News and Japanese blog Mac Otakara (via MacRumours) are to be believed, we could see a second device arrive before the end of the year.
The rumours suggest that cheaper versions of an iPad, iPhone and MacBook Air are on the way, and that a smaller, more affordable version of the HomePod - dubbed the 'HomePod Mini' - “is forecast to launch in the second half of 2018 for between $150-$200” (£100-£150).
However, we would take these prices and timelines with a pinch of salt – Apple was anything but punctual with its long-delayed HomePod.
Though currently the best-sounding smart speaker on the market, the HomePod (£320) is considerably more expensive than Amazon’s Echo 2 (£90) and Google’s Home (£130). Apple bringing its prices more in line with its rivals would no doubt please many.
