After setting the mobile space on fire, Apple is now expanding its services to Apple speakers.

Tech analysts say the speaker priced at $349 is set to be launched in December. 

The acoustic modeling and Siri's optimized version will make the "Homepod" an all-in-one entertainment. The speaker will be powered by Apple's A8 chip. 

The Siri operated HomePod not only plays music but will also help in assisting and controlling household tasks and smart home accessories. 

Just say “Hey Siri, turn on the lights” or “cool the room” or “lower the shades.”

Apple will first launch the limited edition with only around 500,000 units in the US, UK, and Australia.

The tech giant will be manufacturing the speaker in collaboration with Taiwanese firm Inventec. Also, expectations are that Foxconn may join the partnership in 2018.
