Apple has announced its first new product since the Apple Watch more than two years ago. It even comes with Apple's communications encryption technology, which is frankly reassuring.
It will be launched in December to compete with Amazon Echo and Google Home, which have both been really successful.

Apple has finally jumped into the home speaker market; however, they do claim that their new offering, delivers better sound quality than their competitors, analysts claim it will also challenge Sonos.
Apple saved its most anticipated WWDCannouncement for the very end. During Monday's keynote address, Apple listed three points of focus during HomePod's development.
This isn't Apple's first attempt to enter the home audio market. "With over 165 million subscriptions to Apple services and quarterly revenue of $7 billion, this is an important priority for growth".
Apple will begin shipping the HomePod to the United States, Britain and Australia in December.
But Apple is late to the game on VR.
"We completely reimagined how a speaker should make music in the home". When you say "Hey Siri", it starts listening for your command or question. With the HomePod, only after Hey Siri is recognized locally on the device will any information be sent to Apple servers, encrypted and sent using an anonymous Siri identifier. That money immediately can be used in retail stores that take Apple Pay or can be moved to a bank account.
