Apple Begins Production Of Siri, Smart Speaker To Debut Next Month
Apple is reportedly preparing to announce its first-ever Siri-powered smart speaker. The Cupertino-based tech giant is assumed to unveil it during the 2017 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC that will happen next month. Aside from the Siri Smart Speaker, other new products such as MacBooks and iPads are soon to be released.
Interact With Siri Using This New Apple Smart Speaker
The alleged Apple Siri Smart Speaker is ready to take on its rival similar devices like the Google Home and Amazon Echo. According to CNBC, the new speaker will allow users to interact with Siri, Apple's intelligent assistant (AI), in order to control their smart home.
Using the AI Siri, a user might ask the smart speaker to turn the lights on and off, lower the shades and even adjust the thermostat. In addition to that, it should also allow users to ask questions the AI already has answers for. This queries may include information about weather, local movie times, and other things that can be found on the Internet.
Aside from that, it will also offer a "virtual surround sound," Bloomberg said, which is not present on either Google Home or Amazon Echo. This feature will improve the music playing on the speaker so that the listening experience of the users will be smooth and with louder speakers.
Release Date Of Apple's Siri Speaker
This new and most-awaited speaker product will make its debut during the 2017 WWDC on June 5. However, Apple won't launch the Siri speaker until later this year. Apple will also possible to let third-party services develop products for the speaker. For the record, Apple opened up Siri on its iPhone last year to the likes of Uber Technologies Inc. and Facebook Inc., which allow users to order a ride or send a WhatsApp message with an attached voice command.
Apple hopes that more advanced technology will give the speaker an advantage over its competitors. Along with producing virtual surround sound, Siri speaker is being tested and is said to be louder than its rivals. Aside from that, it can also reproduce sound more crisply.
