No one was really expecting an update to the HomePod, but an update we did get. The HomePod (2023) looks much the same as the last one, although it's filled with updates on the inside. It'll measure the room you're in, for example, so that it gives you the best possible room-filling sound, and you can link two of the same HomePods together to get stereo sound for your Apple TV.

It's also a little cheaper than the previous model - there's been a $50 price cut, so it now costs $299. That's not a massive sum less, but it makes the speaker a more compelling buy. The question, therefore, remains - where can you preorder one?

When will the new HomePod be released?

The new Homepod releases on February 3, and shipping dates look to reflect that date. If it's popular, watch out for delivery date slippage as the first run goes out of stock.

There are both colors available to preorder at Best Buy, and you can even pop into a local store to pick one up when it's released. There are some extra options here as well, such as 4 free months of some Apple subscriptions services like Apple News+, Apple Music, and Apple TV+.

The new HomePod will likely be available to preorder from Amazon, although there isn't a product listing quite yet. Price and delivery date are likely to echo Apple's, so if you've a Prime account this one may be the way to go.
