Replacing the HomePod’s Non-removable Power cable (Updated) »

Jordan Kahn at 9to5Mac:

Apple has informed store employees and authorized service providers that it will in some instances perform repairs for detached or damaged HomePod cables, according to an internal memo obtained by 9to5Mac.

Apple describes damaged or detached cables for HomePod as something it expects to be a “rare instance” for users, but it does have a policy in place to perform repairs at a cost.

If no physical damage to the speaker itself is present, Apple will replace a damaged power cord for $29. That’s far better than the $279 out-of-warranty replacement cost for the HomePod itself, but a removable power cord would have been even better.

Update: It’s removable, but you shouldn’t try it.
