Apple has finally revealed its long awaited Siri-connected speaker at this year's WWDC, a direct rival to the likes of the Amazon Echo and Google Home. Siri will be voice activated to respond to requests for information and other help around the house. And then there's a new generation of smart speakers like Amazon Echo and Google Home, but those don't really sound good.
"I wouldn't want to talk about roadmaps, but I think when people are starting to spend that amount of money for a speaker - call it hundreds of dollars per speaker - I think that generally they are going to want choice", he said. That includes a "seven beam-forming tweeter array", "precision acoustic horns", and "directional control".

As a home assistant, HomePod sends messages, get updates on news, sports and weather, or control smart home devices by simply asking Siri to turn on the lights, close the shades or activate a scene. Apple said it has also updated the processors in its iMac and MacBook Pro lineup to Intel's most recent "Kaby Lake" processors.
HomePod will be available for $349 (US) in white and space grey starting in December initially in Australia, the United Kingdom and the US. Apple did list Australia as a launch country, which means, given the worldwide dateline, it's likely we'll see HomePod here before anyone else.
