Apple RingGate: HomePod Leaves Marks On Wood Furniture

The speaker costs USD349. At least, that was the finding of Yahoo's David Pogue, who did a blind test of the Google Home Max, Apple HomePod, Sonos One, and Amazon Echo Plus. However, even then, make sure not to place it on a wooden surface.

Pocket-Lint founder Stuart Miles told BBC that the HomePod left a white mark on his kitchen worktop after just being on there for 20 minutes.

Apple HomePods have reached a few, and seems like there is an issue that no one could have expected.

Put A Coaster Under Your Apple HomePod To Protect Wooden Surfaces

Apple has been in the limelight for quite some time now, but for all the wrong reasons. Most of these are aimed at home users, but many can also be useful in an office or commercial environments such as hotels or restaurants (and, of course, a lot of them also support the Amazon Echo too).

After placing the smart speaker on wooden surfaces, some users have noticed that it leaves behind a unusual white mark - even damaging expensive furniture.

Apple says that these rings are a result of the oils diffused between the speaker's vibration-dampening silicone base and the wood.

The integrated HomePod cable can be repaired for just £25, although most users would still have preferred one that could be removed...

'If the marks persist, clean the surface with the furniture manufacturer's recommended cleaning process, ' the firm continues, seemingly suggesting that the user might need to refinish their furniture in order for the ring to go away. When you compare that to the Apple Watch and iPhone, that's a massive difference.

The recently released HomePod promised to be the most exciting of all the smart speakers, ready to compete against Amazon's Alexa and Google's Home.

Voyager 1's cameras were turned off shortly after that portrait, leaving its distance record unchallenged for more than 27 years. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has broken the record for an image taken at the farthest distance from Earth in history.

HomePod owners have been tackling this regrettable issue through the use of social media in efforts to shed awareness of the matter, as well as express their obvious frustrations.
