Getting Better

Amazon Echo and Google Home likely won't make it to Christmas without a little extra competition, as it appears Apple's smart speaker debut has been put into motion.

A Siri-powered speaker from the iPhone maker has reportedly entered production, with an announcement to follow as soon as next week during Apple's WWDC 2017 event, sources familiar with the project tell Bloomberg.

Though the unveiling of Apple's rumored Siri Speaker could come as soon as June 5, the report says it's not expected to ship out until later this year.

This isn't the first time we've heard tell that a Siri Speaker would show at WWDC. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted earlier this month that Apple will reveal its smart speaker at the conference, alongside a new iPad.

Several other reports and rumors also placed their chips on a Siri Speaker reveal at WWDC, and we can't blame them — Amazon Echo and Google Home have found an audience, leaving Apple and its suite of products like Apple Music, Apple Homekit, AirPlay, and almost entirely unattended by the smart speaker market.

As for when we'll get the official word on the Siri Speaker, we only have to wait until this coming Monday, where we also plan to learn more about what Apple has in store for other products like the iPad Pro, iPhone SE 2, the MacBook, and possibly even iOS 11.

Google is improving to get an edge over Echo in versatility; it will be interesting to see if Echo makes a move to challenge the Google Assistant's multi-user support or conversational competence. For consumers point of view, this competition can only be a good as both companies need to improve their devices to keep up with the other.
