HomePod Still Remains Launch Day Delivery, Suggesting Low Consumer Demand, As More Features Been Discovered

While it appears that Apple has enough stock to for-fill orders and keep up with demand, a report even points out that a million HomePods started shipping before pre-orders opened. Polls and social media responses also indicating HomePod’s steep price tag and lateness to the market will deter many potential customers. – HomePod delivers and in-stock pick-ups start on Friday, February 9th.
