Sonos-branded wireless speakers have been on sale for quite some time, but they’ve been missing from Apple’s retail arm.
But that is changing, beginning today. Following a beta that saw Apple Music streaming to compatible Sonos speakers since last year, the company will officially begin selling the wireless speakers through Apple’s online retail store beginning Monday, September 26. The Sonos Play:1 will be available, as well as the Sonos Play:5.
“At Sonos, we believe that music deserves a central place in our lives and in our homes. Playing music out loud makes everything better – more profound, joyful, meaningful and affirming. The easier we make it to fill your home with music, the more people will listen.
We’re very excited to announce today that we’re making it easier than ever by expanding our collaboration with Apple and bringing Sonos into Apple’s physical and online retail stores. Two of our most popular speakers — the PLAY:1 and PLAY:5 — will be available later today at Apple.com in the USA, at 468 Apple Stores around the world starting October 5, and Apple.com in the coming weeks in most markets outside of the USA.
Better still, those who buy a Sonos system at Apple retail stores or at Apple.com between today and December 31 will receive a free three-month Apple Music Gift Card.”
The two speakers will go on sale later today online, but for folks who want to see them in a physical Apple retail outlet, you’ll have to wait until October 5.
