The device would would have other smart-home functions, including music player, gaming, video streaming and Apple’s Siri digital assistant.
Apple discontinued its HomePod smart speaker in March. The company released the HomePod mini in 2020. Apple may be planning a new “high-end speaker with a touchscreen” to compete with Google Nest and Amazon Echo smart speakers, according to Bloomberg.
