Apple’s HomePod smart speakers coming to Canada June 18

Apple came late to the smart speaker game and lags far behind Google Home and Amazon’s Echo line. It doesn’t help that HomePods aren’t available in countries outside of the US, the UK, and Australia. But that will change June 18 when they finally come to Canada June 18.

In amongst a bunch of announcements regarding the new “stereo pairs” and “multi-room audio” functions coming with iOS 11.4 was the note that HomePods will be available in Canada next month. The price? A steep $449, which is considerably more than any Alexa device and most Google Home products. Only the Google Max costs more at $499.

Any takers?
