(I feel like it's influenced by the Mac Pro trashcan design.) It's under 7 inches tall in a 3d mesh acoustic fabric. A8, 7 tweeters, dynamic modeling subwoofer - it's going to sound incredible.
HomePod recognizes the vocals and can beam-form direct them.
When you set up two, they automatically recognize each other.
Phil mentioned a musicologist. It's working with Apple Music from the start. Music provides music in the cloud, and the speaker can get those tracks from the cloud, and it knows your playlists, artists, and everything you love. It works with six microphones around the middle, and you prompt it with Hey Siri. The Siri waveform appears on top, and it will play the music you want to hear.
You can be across the room, and it will understand you while you play loud music. It has the power to rock the house, it has spatial awareness to adapt to the size and shape of room you place it in, and it's a powerful musicologist... and home assistant.
You can control HomeKit as well.
HomePod acts as a HomeKit base. Formerly, you had to use an iPad or AppleTV4.
This is going to take your home music experience to the next level. All of these things ship this year. Some now, some in the Fall. We got incredible new features in watchOS. High Sierra pushes the Mac experience further. Macs are now faster and more capable than ever. iOS 11 is a major update, jam packed with new features, including a completely new App Store, person to person payments, and with AR Kit becomes the world's largest augmented reality overnight. Incredible new features for iPad, making it the biggest update for iPads ever, and the new iPad 10.5 with fantastic displays that will let people do more with their iPads than ever before. And the HomePod. A breakthrough speaker that will reinvent home audio.
Over a thousand Apple engineers are on hand, and tomorrow will be a special fireside chat in this room. Michelle Obama will join Tim tomorrow, to talk about encouraging young developers. She'll be talking about empowering people from all walks of life to change the world.
I hope everyone here has a fantastic week. Thank you!
And that's it - Tim's out. We're going to head over to the press area and get some hands-on experience with all the new devices and software!
