Siri Speaker To Be Unveiled At WWDC, Apple Already Manufacturing Device Overseas

This is why WWDC seems like a natural time for Apple to announce such a device, as it's a developer conference, even if the speaker isn't slated to actually be released until the end of the year. That product was created to more closely resemble a Sonos-like Wifi-connected device without a smart assistant, and was killed by Apple following the acquisition.

Apple will be holding its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) of June 5 and the company is expected to showcase the rumoured Amazon Echo and Google Home rival.

Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo lineup and Google Home has advanced to the manufacturing stage, according to Bloomberg. Dickson believes that the device would have a speaker mesh portion covering the body. It will of course be able to control devices via Apple HomeKit and allow users to access Apple services such as Apple Music. Soon, a device embossed with "Designed by Apple in California" may be on your nightstand or kitchen counter as well.

Additionally, a new Bloomberg report sheds some more light on how Apple may carve out space for itself in a market now dominated by Google and Amazon. Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated during the past few earnings calls that he expects Apple's services business to reach the size of a Fortune 100 company within the next few years, offsetting flagging hardware sales.

Apple SVP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller went to address the importance of a screen. Apple may also let third-party services build products for its speaker. That includes virtual surround sound, in addition to speakers that are both louder and that "reproduce sound more crisply" than what's already on the market. Apple has also considered including sensors that measure a room's acoustics and automatically adjust audio levels during use, one of the people said.
