This Roomba vacuums and mops, and it’s about time

iRobot, known best for its popular Roomba range of robot vacuums, has announced two big developments for 2022 – a large OS update and a new model with a unique retractable mopping mechanism.

This news is the first major development we’ve seen from the manufacturer since news broke in August 2022 regarding its acquisition by Amazon. iRobot is also using the moment to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of its first Roomba robot in 2002.
