Smart speakers are starting to see even more attention, and now Sonos is jumping on the bandwagon.
Amazon has finally seen fit to upgrade its Echo speaker, today announcing a brand new, improved model.
On October 4, Google is going to host an event where it will unveil the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, follow-ups to last year’s flagship smartphones.
It looks like ahead of its December launch, Apple has given the HomePod to some of its employees across the world for testing. The smart speaker device has made some wild appearances in photos posted online indicating its closed public testing.
Samsung has been rumored to be working on a smart speaker for a little while now, (probably not) coincidentally starting after the debut of Apple’s own effort, the HomePod, earlier this year.
Recently, Apple seeded the seventh developer beta for iOS 11, and, with it, even more details about the upcoming HomePod smart speaker have been revealed.
Available stock for Apple products is always strained, especially at launch, but it has certainly become the case recently, with the iPhone 7 Plus and AirPods — only one of which is readily available even now, months after launch.
Early last week, a major goof-up on Apple’s part has revealed several things about the highly-anticipated iPhone 8, alongside other unreleased Apple devices. Pre-release HomePod firmware was accidentally uploaded to public servers on 31st July 2017. And before Apple could pull it down, copies were downloaded and being scanned word-for-word by people on the Internet.
Rumor has it that the iPhone 8 is going to put a huge focus on facial recognition, and, as such, may be replacing Touch ID as a security feature on this year’s flagship iPhone.
There are new iPhones going to be announced soon, probably in September, and the HomePod –Apple’s new smart speaker set to launch in December– has been a bastion of information regarding the upcoming handsets.
