Apple Analyst Hints At Imminent Launch Of Next Iteration Of This Key Product

Apple, Inc. AAPL is expected to have a strong launch year in 2022. The company is widely anticipated to follow up its April's "Peek Performance" launches with a slew of new hardware products in the second-half of the year. Apple will likely release a new version of HomePod smart speaker anywhere between the fourth quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023, prominent Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said. The analyst, however, does not expect much innovation in hardware design. "Smart speakers are undoubtedly one of the essential elements of the home ecosystem, but I think Apple is still figuring out how to succeed in this market," the TFI Securities analyst said in a tweet. Earlier, Bloomberg columnist Mark Gurman reported that Apple is working on a new HomePod, sized between the now-discontinued HomePod and the HomePod Mini. Gurman had also hinted at a HomePod, combining an Apple TV set-top box with a HomePod speaker, while also including a camera for video conferencing through a connected TV and other smart-home functions. The writer suggested that this product could be in early stages of development. Apple closed Friday's session up 0.17% at $137.59, according to Benzinga Pro data.
