The much-anticipated Apple HomePod is formally readily available for pre-order. The brand new Siri-equipped speaker competes with the Amazon Echo and also Google Home in the challenge to be the smart home speaker of preference. The sleek device offers a big woofer and 7 beam-forming tweeters aligned 360 degrees around the figure, to generate big sound in a handy bundle. It also provides a six-microphone range to enable smooth voice controls with Siri even though the speaker is at a loud volume, and with the complimentary software update later this season, owners will have the ability to play music all through the house with multi-room sound.
