Apple developing a new device with a TV box and HomePod speaker combined Leave a comment

Tech giant, Apple might not be able to create its impact in the smart home industry but now can prove itself by launching a new device that would combine an Apple TV set-top box with a HomePod speaker and include a camera for video conferencing through a connected TV and other smart-home functions.
It will have standard Apple TV box functions like watching a video and other capabilities like gaming plus smart speaker use such as playing music and using Apple’s Siri digital assistant.
Google and Amazon have not seriously addressed a combined speaker and TV box category, though Facebook Inc. sells a Portal video chat device that uses a TV as its display and Amazon sells the Fire TV Cube box with a small speaker.
If launched, it would uplift Apple’s image in the smart home category and will be the most ambitious smart-home hardware offering to date. So if launched it may help revive Apple’s fortunes in the smart-home category.
