Apple starts producing smart speaker with Siri - report

Thursday 1 June 2017 | 09:03 CET | News
Apple has started manufacturing a smart speaker controlled by its digital assistant software Siri, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. 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 report said. The device will differ from Amazon's Echo and the Google Home speakers by offering virtual surround sound technology and deep integration with Apple's product lineup. This is expected to support continued growth in Apple's services as well as serve as a hub for Apple's HomeKit system.
