KGI: Apple could sell just 2 million HomePods across all of 2018, company ‘mulls’ low-cost model
A fresh report from Ming-Chi Kuo gives KGI’s take on the recent stories of poor market reception for HomePod. The report suggests that Apple could sell 2-2.5 million HomePods across all of 2018, with a million of those from first month pent-up demand.
Most analysts have predicted sales for HomePod around ten million a year, so Kuo’s prediction is quite pessimistic. He says the high price has cut off a lot of the potential market and that Apple is ‘mulling’ a lower-cost model.
