    Kicking myself I didn't pick one of for £199 now, never thought they'd go back up! (edit : found one at the high street store that announced it was closing shops yesterday, those "Partners" are gonna be upset!)

    Seems like £199 price is stablised now. Could there be an upgrade coming up this fall?

    Apple never drops prices but many high-street retailers have them for £199.

    That’s happened before, the last time they were down to £199, quite a few places had them at that price.

    /edit - I’m not saying you’re wrong, just not to read too much into the price drop as it’s happened before.

    Yeah I get what you're saying. The difference that I see is that they've gone to £199 and stayed there for a good while now. They've have regularly gone down to £199 and then back up ever since they were released.

    I'm not seeing that. On the 4th they were still £279 at all the shops I checked and then @HEADRAT posted on the 10th to say they were at £199 again so they went down sometime between the 4th and the 10th. Even if they went down the day after I checked then that's only been nine days.

    Does anyone though if there is a difference in sound quality with saying "hey Siri play music" vs using my phone/tablet apple music app.

    I have always used the apple music app on my phone and selected the HomePod in the airplay setting. Just curious if there would be a difference?
