Apple has announced the release of the HomePod 2, a smart speaker that boasts advanced acoustics and an iconic design. The new HomePod is equipped with Siri intelligence and support for immersive Spatial Audio tracks, as well as new features such as smart home automation and smoke and carbon monoxide detection. It is available in white and a new color, midnight, made with 100% recycled mesh fabric. It has a custom-engineered high-excursion woofer, a powerful motor, and a beamforming array of five tweeters, which work together to deliver a powerful acoustic experience. The HomePod 2 is available for online and in-store purchase starting February 3rd.

“Leveraging our audio expertise and innovations, the new HomePod delivers rich, deep bass, natural mid-range, and clear, detailed highs. With the popularity of HomePod mini, we’ve seen growing interest in even more powerful acoustics achievable in a larger HomePod. We’re thrilled to bring the next generation of HomePod to customers around the world.”

– Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing
