Apple may launch Amazon Alexa-like speaker for Siri
Siri Speaker Apple fans who have yet to take the Alexa plunge may have a reason to wait: Apple is expected to announce a new smart speaker for Siri at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 5-9 in San Jose, CA. So says Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, (Via MacRumors) who believes there is a 50 percent chance that Apple will announce the new product next month, and have the speaker ready to launch in the fall or winter of this year. Kuo expects the Siri smart speaker to also cost more than the Echo.
Rumors of a Siri-run device with voice control have been bandied about for more than a year. But this puts a more concrete time table on the potential gadget, even though there's still nothing definitive. This would, however, be Apple's first smart home device as Apple HomeKit is really a platform meant to link existing connected products.
