The Apple HomePod (2nd-gen) gets a discount

The latest iteration of the Apple HomePod controls your smart home, plays music, can serve as part of a home theater system, and has built-in temperature and humidity sensors.

Apple HomePod is one of today’s best smart home hubs

Apple HomePod deals are a rarity. This second-generation HomePod is now $10 off at B&H. This sale applies to both the white and midnight color options.

The HomePod features a backlit touch display used to control volume and tracks. You can employ Siri for those tasks. The inclusion of Spatial Audio, Dolby Atmos, and adaptive audio give this cylindrical speaker a sound that outweighs its size. It’s deep, rich, and immersive. Pair two HomePods with an Apple TV 4K, and you have a top-of-the-line home theater setup.

The second-generation HomePod’s microphone has a few new tricks. It has sound recognition, so it can listen for carbon monoxide and smoke alarms and alert you to any problems. That’s pretty cool.

The HomePod 2 supports Matter, so it’s now easier than ever to connect smart bulbs, smart plugs, smart thermostats, and other devices.
