Tim Cook Explains Why The Apple HomePod Is Better Than Other Smart Speakers
Tim Cook took his first trip to Canada since replacing Steve Jobs as CEO in 2011, this week by spending a couple days in Toronto. During Cook’s trip, he decided to make an unannounced visit to shoppers and students in a Toronto Apple Store. Plus, Cook shared some thought’s on Apple’s first smart speaker: the HomePod.
Cook’s primary focuses were to preach Apple’s Everyone Can Code program and commitment to Canada, adding over 120,000 through programming and app development. Of course, Tim did address some additional questions and relevant Apple topics.
Cook’s Apple Store pop-up show came on the same day Apple announced the release date for its HomePod, the first smart speaker from Apple. The HomePod debuted last summer at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) and was expected to hit the market in December 2017. However, Apple later pushed back the release until February 2018. This week, Apple announced orders will begin on January 26th and expected to arrive by Feb 9th.
