I agree with Zac Hall and John Voorhees that Apple removing the HomePod from their product line is concerning for their overall home strategy. Having just bought a HomePod Mini and being pretty delighted with it, I’m not sure how much I would want to expand in that ecosystem with smart devices. Unless Apple follows up with something that reassures consumers that they staying in the game, it may be best to hold off on building your smart home with Apple.
