Apple Homepod is leaving its mark behind, literally

Wirecuttersaid in its review that the HomePod left a white ring on an oiled butcher-block countertop, while Pocket-Lint's review model left a similar mark on an oak kitchen worktop treated with Danish oil. If a white ring has been formed on your furniture, it is best that you let it be as it is or risk further damage to the wood.
Early adopters of Apple's new £319 HomePod smart speaker have started complaining that the "new sound of home" is leaving white ring marks on wooden surfaces that are hard to remove.

After two different sites noted that the HomePod made the marks on some oil-finished furniture, Apple published a new support document - Cleaning and taking care of HomePod. If so, that could hamper Apple's efforts to catch up to less expensive internet-connected speakers from Amazon and Google that had a head start in the still nascent market. So if you want to display your new HomePod on a wooden table or shelf put a coaster (or some other sort of buffer) underneath the speaker.
Ever since it was launched, one of the major issues with the smart speaker was that Siri was not "smart" enough, especially compared with the capabilities of the Amazon Echo's Alexa and the Google Home's Google Assistant. The speaker requires a flat and solid surface in order to function correctly.
The company suggests the marks can be remedied by wiping the wood down with a soft damp or dry cloth, but failing that, the surface will need to be cleaned or resurfaced. If you are really going to put the HomePod on wood, then make sure that there is a piece of cloth placed between both surfaces to prevent the irreparable harm.
Despite the pile-on against Apple, the HomePod is not the only smart speaker that can stain one's coffee table.
AppletoldWirecutter that treating the stained surface with the manufacturer's oil cleaning method should do the trick.
