Bloomberg: Siri Speaker To Debut at WWDC17

Over the past several months, talk surrounding whether or not Apple may be planning to launch a smart speaker powered by its assistant – Siri, has been steadily increasing …

And now, the rumor-mill might just have the confirmation it has been waiting for …

Although the Cupertino company has remained predictably silent on its future plans to integrate the sassy helper into an Echo-style solution, Bloomberg has outed a report this week in which it cites sources close to the situation as claiming that Apple has in fact started manufacturing a “long-in-the-works, Siri-controlled smart speaker.”

“Apple could debut the speaker as soon as its annual developer conference in June, but the device will not be ready to ship until later in the year,” the source added.

The product is set to rival that of Amazon Echo and Google Home devices as it is reported to offer “virtual surround sound” technology and deep integration with the firm’s existing ecosystem …

…and that fact alone could put it at a distinct advantage over other offerings, as Bloomberg notes that Apple Music compatibility -an ability notably missing from other current smart speaker offerings- is expected to be a given.

“Sources say Apple employees have been testing the speaker in their homes for several months,” iClarified adds.

Apple is expected to hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center – between June 5-9.
