Apple just detailed the price and release date of the HomePod, its long-awaited smart speaker. The Bluetooth 5.0-enabled soundpiece will launch February 9, but can be preordered as soon as this Friday, January 26th, in White and Space Gray. How much is the price? 

Well, at $349 you will be able to snatch it directly from Apple in the US, UK and Australia, and it is coming later in the spring to France and Germany as well. The HomePod will be available at these Apple Authorized Resellers, too:

  • US: Best Buy
  • UK: Argos, Dixons Carphone (Currys PC World), John Lewis, Shop Direct (Very and Littlewoods), EE and Apple Premium Resellers
  • Australia: The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Myer and Telstra

Apple's HomePod is compatible with any iPhone 5s or later, the iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, and the iPod touch (6th generation), which should be running iOS 11.2.5, or a higher version.
