Apple’s Rumored HomePod With Display Now Expected In 2025 At Earliest

Apple has long been rumored to be working on a new type of HomePod with a display built in for years now, but there is so far no confirmation from Apple that one is on the way.

However, a new report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that while he believes a new model is in development, we shouldn’t expect it to debut any time soon.

Gurman was writing in the weekly Power On newsletter when he said that it’s unlikely to arrive until 2025 at the earliest. The device, which is being worked on in a few different configurations, would be the first HomePod with a display that Apple has ever produced.

One example of the HomePod is thought to be similar to a HomePod with a display attached to a robotic arm, while Gurman also believes that Apple is considering an iPad-like display that can be attached to a wall using magnets.

But I am told Apple that continues to pursue this idea and has begun early work on it with overseas suppliers, including China’s BYD, which makes some iPad models. If Apple finally moves forward with the product, a launch wouldn’t come until 2025 at the earliest. Work on the device is being led by Matt Costello and Brian Lynch, two key executives in the company’s hardware group.

Apple currently sells two different versions of its smart speaker; the second-generation HomePod and the HomePod mini.
