@ecarlseen you’re making it sound like you need WiFi 6 to use WPA3, which is not true. As a matter of fact, my main network is WPA3-only and the original HomePods, a HomePod mini and my Watch Series 7 all connect perfectly fine to it. The HomePod mini and Watch Series 7 both use WiFi 4 802.11n.
Seriously, while the decrease in WiFi protocol and the amount of speakers and microphones might seem like odd decisions, the end product might actually be better and sound better too… I’ll be waiting for comparison reviews and might replace my two original HomePods (which are still working perfectly after 5 years, running the latest firmware) if they are found to be better sounding.
Y’all should give the product a chance before writing it off. Just my two cents.
