HomePod is a new magic music experience from Apple. It brings advanced audio technologies like tweeters with beam-forming, one woofer of high capacity and automatic spatial knowledge, along with the entire catalog of Apple Music and Siri's latest intelligence, in a simple, beautiful design that's a lot of fun to use, ”said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing.
Schiller continues: “We are so excited that people can take HomePod to their homes, their apartments and businesses, and hear it themselves. We think I will be overwhelmed by the quality of audio. The team worked to give Siri a deeper understanding of music, so you can ask to play just about anything, from his favorites to the latest successful releases, simply by saying 'And, Siri'. ”
The ability to have multiple HomePods spread around the house is expected to arrive via a software update later this year. Users may have one HomePod in the kitchen and one in the dining room, for example, and both play the same music perfectly in sync. Another possibility is to have two HomePods in one room and use them to distribute the narrow sound.
HomePod will be available in white and space gray for $ 349 In the USA. It is compatible with any iGadget running iOS 11.2.5 or higher.
