Best Buy currently offers Apple HomePod for $199.99 shipped. Typically fetching $299, today’s offer amounts to $99 in savings and matches our previous mention for the best in months. Whether you’re looking to dive into AirPlay 2 for whole-home audio or want to take Apple’s smart home ecosystem for a spin, HomePod is up to the task. The smart speaker is wrapped in a mesh fabric and is complemented by a touchpad on the top for summoning Siri, adjusting volume, and more. You’ll be able to enjoy hi-fi playback from Apple Music, as well, and two units can be paired in stereo for a more well-rounded audio experience. Get all the details in our hands-on review and then head below for more.
If you’re more of an Alexa fan, going with the Echo Plus will amount to plenty of extra savings at $150. This smart speaker doesn’t deliver quite the same experience for those in the Apple ecosystem, but will still control smart home accessories and more. It even has a built-in Zigbee hub for kickstarting your setup.
Over in our Apple deals hub, you’ll find plenty of other discounts today. Just this morning, a collection of first-party iPhone 11/Pro/Max cases went on sale, with prices hitting new all-time lows starting from $12. That’s on top of on-going iPhone offers at Verizon and more right here.
