In addition, the company has mentioned that it will release in early 2018, which is very vague.
In their statement given to The Verge the Apple spokesperson said, "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".
"Apple reinvented portable music with iPod, and now HomePod will reinvent how we enjoy music wirelessly throughout our homes", claimed Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said earlier this year.
The Siri-powered smart speaker will not be rolled out in time to be part of the holiday shopping season, which means that the Amazon Echo and the Google Home will have one less competitor this year. The company has long-term plans for the HomePod, after all.
The tech giant announced the speaker in June at its annual developer conference.
The smart speaker industry has become more competitive this year and launching a first smart speaker at the end of 2017 was already a but late from Apple.
Another big responsibilty on the shoulders of the HomePod is Apple Music.
The Apple HomePod has been delayed to early 2018, giving rivals Amazon and Google a huge advantage in the smart speaker race. Apple is working to keep its Siri voice assistant relevant in the face of competition from Amazon's Alexa and Alphabet's Google Assistant, both of which are featured on smart speakers from those companies.
However, Apple has been keen to market the HomePod as an upgrade on home music systems rather than just its built in assistant, calling it a system that will "reinvent" music listening at home. Amazon's smart speakers have been quite popular since the release of the original Echo 2015.
In fact, the HomePod delay could even be a good thing.
The Apple Homepod will be available in two colors: black and white.
But unlike other companies, Apple is hesitant to open up its speaker to third-party developers. Luckily for Apple, its new iPhone X and iPhone 8 seem to be selling well enough.
