The Apple HomePod is a fantastic smart speaker and is now even cheaper in the Black Friday sale

Apple doesn’t typically get involved in Black Friday deals but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a bargain or two thanks to its resellers.

The Apple HomePod is a beautifully designed, amazing-sounding speaker, wherever you put it. It’s incredibly easy to setup and if you’re already an Apple customer, it’s a doddle to play music from your iPhone or iPad.

In our Apple HomePod review, Reviews Editor Jon Bray described it as a “stunning example of how engineering and technology can be put to use in new and exciting ways, to improve the way small speakers sound, no matter where you put them.”

In addition to music, the Apple HomePod has Siri built in meaning you can ask the speaker questions, set timers, use it to control your smart home devices and, if you have more than one HomePod, set up a multi-room music system.

Siri works with Apple Music, but you’ll need to pay for a separate Apple Music subscription, plus the HomePod will only work if you have iOS 11.2.5 and later running on an iPhone 5S, iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation), iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2, or iPod touch (6th generation) and later. John Lewis is also selling the Apple Watch Series 3 for £249, offering a saving of £30.

Apple may not be offering money off its products but it is giving away gift cards with certain purchases, including a £40 gift card when you buy a HomePod direct.
