Apple HomePod will be discontinued after a short time

The Apple HomePod was Apple's attempt to integrate a good-sounding smart speaker into its own product range. The good surround sound from Sonos should be combined with the smart advantages of Amazon's Echo. Like Apple but at the weekend to the trade magazine TechCrunch announced the speaker will no longer continue with Siri integration. Instead, the focus is shifted to the mini version. However, there should still be software updates for the large HomePod:

HomePod mini has been a hit since its debut last fall, offering customers amazing sound, an intelligent assistant, and smart home control all for just $ 99. We are focusing our efforts on HomePod mini. We are discontinuing the original HomePod, it will continue to be available while supplies last through the Apple Online Store, Apple Retail Stores, and Apple Authorized Resellers. Apple will provide HomePod customers with software updates and service and support through Apple Care.

HomePod as part of Phil Schiller's bankruptcy series?

For example, you can find more detailed articles on the topic in German . at iFun or referring to it again . at the iPhone ticker - but with a focus on Phil Schiller. The iPhone ticker mentions that the HomePod can be viewed as another bust in a series of Schiller's announcements.

Examples include the promised automatic detection of user movements (walking, running, cycling) by the M8 chip in the iPhone 6, the announcement of the “trash can” Mac-Pro, the promises regarding the AirPower charging mat and the like more. In the comments you can read, among other things, that a Spotify integration and an input connection would have made the HomePod more attractive.
