A minor upcoming update of the current HomePod could solve the ring marks issue left by the base of the device on wooden surfaces.
After the many reports of users, in the past Apple has admitted that “the signs can improve several days after the speaker has been removed from the wooden surface” also suggesting that if it does not work you should “try to clean the surface as recommended by furniture manufacturer “.
According to Bloomberg, Apple has now decided to definitively solve the problem by replacing the current material used for the HomePod base. At the moment there are no details on the new material chosen by Apple.
In addition, according to various sources, Apple could release an economic HomePod in the second half of 2018.
