HomePod Apple’s entry into the smart speaker market. The 6.8-inch tall speaker packs in seven tweeters and a woofer, plus six far field microphones. It automatically adjusts itself for the best audio quality based on where it’s placed in a room, and it supports limited Siri voice commands for music playback, weather and news reports, and access to Calendar, Reminders, Notes, and Messages data for the Apple ID and iCloud account it’s linked to.
