Apple's HomePod Is Almost Here
Though it was rumoured for months, Apple finally announced the HomePod at last year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The HomePod is Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. It will have:
- Exceptional sound quality: The HomePod will come with "spatial awareness." This will allow the device to "detect" the space it's in and adjust the volume and sound to work in that environment.
- Six microphones to hear your commands: Just say "Hey Siri" and ask it to tell you the weather and sports scores and, of course, play your music.
- Two colours: The device will come in white and space grey.
The HomePod will cost about $499 and is available to pre-order this Saturday, and will be in stores on Feb. 9. See photos of it ahead.
