A strong competitor to smart home systems, which Amazon has long dominated with its Echo device, is about to enter. Allegedly, Apple will improve its existing technologies and make all devices in the home able to communicate with each other. According to Bloomberg Analyst Mark Gurman , the tech giant is working on at least four new smart home products.
According to the information received, the updated version of Apple’s HomePod 2 smart home system will be the HomePod mini . In addition, Apple will produce a kitchen-style smart display and camera that can be connected to Apple TV to complement the HomePod and HomePod mini in the sense of smart home .
A rival is coming to Echo Show!
Amazon’s successful product , the Echo Show , has already begun to facilitate many home lives around the world. Trying to establish an ecosystem with devices that have been communicating with each other for a long time, Apple thinks that the missing piece is smart home systems. It is thought that the iPad-like kitchen-type display, which is not very common in the industry, will bring a new era to smart home systems.
Compared to Amazon, Apple’s biggest trump card is the possibility of establishing a huge technological network. As you can imagine, iPhone, Apple TV, HomePod, iPad, in short, all Apple products at home will work in harmony with the smart home system. If the claims are true, get ready for Apple products for a real smart home experience!
