Apple HomePod 2: everything you need to know

Apple unveiled the HomePod 2 — the successor to the original HomePod, which was released in 2018. The new wireless speaker is very similar to the first HomePod in most respects, but seems designed more to target Dolby Atmos movies and Apple Music’s spatial audio.

The original Apple HomePod was one of the best wireless speakers on the market, before it was unofficially discontinued in March 2021 and the company chose to focus on the smaller and cheaper Apple HomePod mini.
