Apple HomePod

HomePod is Apple’s very own smart speaker with a greater emphasis on sound and music quality and uses the well-known AI assistant Siri. Siri can help users with a range of tasks such as setting reminders, listening to music, and making purchases. Users can interact with Siri by saying ‘Hey Siri”.

Apple has just released the Apple HomePod Mini. This smart speaker works the same as the traditional Apple HomePod and presents the same risks, but it is much smaller.
