(KGTV) - Apple fans waiting to get their hands on the company's latest foray into home smart assistants will have to wait a bit longer.
Apple's HomePod speaker will reportedly be released in 2018, technology website The Verge reports. The smart assistant is being held out of the holiday shopping season as Apple needs, "a little more time before it's ready for our customers," an Apple spokesperson told the website.
When released, the speaker will take on other popular devices such as Amazon's Echo, Google Home, and Sonos speakers. It's priced at $349 and boasts compatibility with Siri, Apple's smart assistant, among other music features.
