Apple will stop selling its HomePod smart speaker and instead focus on the smaller version of the device.

“We are discontinuing the original HomePod, it will remain available while supplies last through the Apple online store, Apple stores, and Apple authorized resellers,” the tech giant said in a statement. “The HomePod Mini has been a hit since its debut last fall, providing customers with incredible sound, a smart assistant, and smart home control… We’re focusing our efforts on the HomePod Mini.”
