Apple Confirms Release of it’s HomePod.

Apple’s new speaker is claiming to be the ‘smartest speaker on offer’.

The HomePod will be launched in December to compete with Amazon Echo and Google Home, which have both been really successful. The speaker will be just under 7 inches high and houses Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri.

The HomePod speaker has the ability to adjust sound levels when playing music based on its surroundings.

The device also contains six microphones to pick up voice commands and it will contain the A8 processor chip – the one used in the iPhone – meaning the HomePod could be the ‘smartest home speaker’ on offer.
