The Amazon Echo and Google Home are under $200, but Apple folks argue that the higher price tag is worth it. Amazon's (AMZN) record-breaking Echo speaker, which it can't make fast enough, and Google's (GOOGL) Home speaker were top dogs in a new category. Siri will be voice activated to respond to requests for information and other help around the house.

The new HomePod is an impressive piece of hardware.

Geoff Blaber, VP Research Americas, CCS Insight said: "It is little surprise that Apple has chose to launch a smart speaker. With over 165 million subscriptions to Apple services and quarterly revenue of $7 billion, this is an important priority for growth".

HomePod will be available starting in December, initially in Australia, the United Kingdom and the US.

So, yeah, HomePod can act a lot like the Google Home speaker or Alexa through Amazon's Echo line. It's likely to be the more powerful than both Amazon Echo and Google Home, but in terms of features, productivity and support, both Echo and Home will give a hard time to HomePod.

Apple announced the launch of HomePod today at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. Cook has always been bullish about the prospects for augmented reality, and Apple is working on smart glasses, people familiar with the plans have said. Samsung and Google already have VR systems centered on their smartphones.

However, letting Amazon blanket the mass market with $49 Echo Dots does not mean Apple is ceding the virtual assistant market to Amazon. These devices will only keep the most recent messages in local storage.

It's also been created to become the centerpiece of an Apple HomeKit connected home. So far, the service has limited payments to purchases of products and services from companies and other organizations.

For some reason this was a feature that was not mentioned during the iOS 11 announcement but was later discovered during the beta of the software. This makes Amazon's speaker more functional and versatile.

Or, if you're in the US.

High Sierra features will include being able to stop unexpected videos from starting to play automatically when landing on web pages and "intelligent tracking prevention" that will prevent ads from following people about the internet. It will not actually block ads, though.

The new iPad Pro will be available in three sizes, including a 10.5 inch model. Yet it isn't as bulky as the 12.9-inch model.

In a blog post Technalysis Research founder Bob O'Donnell depicted Apple's latest product news as an affirmation that the company has not fallen behind competitors and is working to take advantage of potentially exciting new technologies. Because of that combination, it's priced at a whopping $349. The new model starts at $649 and will start shipping next week.

Apple-designed upward-facing woofer, paired with the custom A8 chip, enables bass management through real-time software modeling that ensures the speaker delivers the deepest and cleanest bass possible, with low distortion.
