Joe Rossignol writing for MacRumors:
Apple is widely rumored to be working on a Siri-based smart home device with a speaker, and Australian leaker Sonny Dickson has shared new details about its possible design and features on Twitter and with MacRumors.
I actually thought the ‘Apple Speaker’ with Siri on-board was dead and that the company would focus on just using the device closest to you, be that an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV.
Dickson was told Apple’s smart speaker could be unveiled at WWDC 2017 in early June, but as always, the company’s plans could change.
That would actually surprise me, especially since the iPads are still waiting for an update and the MacBook Adorable for a speed bump.
In the meantime, Siri still makes little sense in countries without language support, even for people who know English well enough.
‘Hey, Siri! What’s the population of Wrocław, Poland?’
Hmm… Well that’s an improvement! I genuinely did not expect it to catch my hometown’s name, especially since it’s not pronounced ‘rock-law’. Now Siri, please start understand foreign street addresses in a similar fashion!
