HomePod Delayed Until 2018

Apple, in a statement today:

We can’t wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple’s breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it’s ready for our customers. We’ll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018.

At WWDC, Apple said that its home speaker would be out “by the end of the year.”

No word on the iMac Pro, but Apple’s website still says “Available December” for that product.
