Next Apple TV could be a hybrid with HomePod

Apple already has devices with smart capabilities: the HomePod Mini or the recently discontinued HomePod. These are smart speakers supported by Siri that enable a set of tasks through a few voice commands.

This philosophy will be applied to the next Apple TV, with this one having an integrated smart speaker. It would be a fantastic addition, excusing your users from having to press the microphone button on the remote to control the box with their voice.

Having an Apple TV always listening seems to be the natural evolution of the brand’s gadget. Additionally, it would put the product in line with what other brands already offer in the same market niche.

Gurman also points to the inclusion of a camera in this box. Thanks to this, users will be able to take advantage of FaceTime’s potential or adapt Apple TV to a small surveillance camera in the room.

The analyst warns that this renewed Apple TV is still at an early stage of its development. With the rumors that a new generation is approaching. Mark Gurman does not guarantee that this generation will have these smart features.

Next HomePod will have touch screen

Mark Gurman continues rumors that Apple is developing a new HomePod with a screen. According to the analyst, this panel will be sensitive to touch.

The analyst talks about a combination of the iPad and the HomePod for the new gadget. It is also expected to include a camera to enhance the making of video calls through this intelligent product.

Both products mentioned in this report are not expected to be launched this year. It is likely that we will only see them being made official in 2022, but we will have to wait for more indications on the subject.
