A new report from Mark Gurman and Alex Webb at Bloomberg says that Apple is already starting to manufacture the “Siri Speaker”:
The iPhone-maker has started manufacturing a long-in-the-works Siri-controlled smart speaker, according to people familiar with the matter. 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 people said.
I’ve been promoting the Siri Speaker concept (by name!) since March 2016, so I’m excited to think that it may really be on its way.
