- Apple is still working according to Bloomberg a competitor for the smart Echo speaker from Amazon. The new device should be a Siri-based hub for smart devices. Bloomberg has learned that Apple already has a prototype of the device to the test.
About the mysterious new Apple device is also still little known, but it seems plausible that the speaker is to be invoked at any time, \'Hey, Siri. Then, for example, be given the task of setting up a tune, the thermostat setting or a little less to do with the lighting.
Currently, Apple uses the Apple TV as a central hub for smart devices. The devices talk to each other through Apple's smart home platform HomeKit. For the time being the number of devices that supports HomeKit limited, but the prominence of iOS HomeKit 10 is expected that this will increase rapidly.
There were already rumors about a \'Echo-killer from Apple, but the project appeared to have been killed. Now it turns out that this is not so.
