Apple is planning to launch a Siri based smart Speaker at its Worldwide Developers Conference next week, reports Bloomberg. Along with the beta of iOS 11, watchOS 4, macOS and tvOS.
The iPhone-maker has started manufacturing a long-in-the-works Siri-controlled smart speaker, according to people familiar with the matter. Apple could debut the speaker as soon as its annual developer conference in June, but the device will not be ready to ship until later in the year, the people said.
The Siri speaker will differentiate itself from the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices by offering virtual surround sound technology wit AI.
It will be great to see a Siri-based Smart Speaker. I am using Amazon Alexa, and i really love it. Siri will do things better. We are assuming Siri will be having a display as well. Now Amazon Show has a display too. Let’s see who does things better. Apple’s speaker will not have a display, according to people who have seen it. That’s a sad news. Yet all these are rumors. Apple might surprise us also with some great innovation.
Sources say Apple employees have been testing the speaker in their homes for several months. In addition to generating virtual surround sound, the speakers are purportedly louder and crisper than rival offerings. The company also considered including sensors that would measure a room’s acoustics and automatically adjust audio levels. Apple is also expected to unveil new MacBooks, new iPads, and a new Magic Keyboard at WWDC.
