Apple shares new HomePod tutorials on YouTube

Apple Homepod- sawing through

Furthermore, Siri-and especially Siri on the HomePod-has been surpassed by itsbetter programmed peers, Alexa and Google, who can handle a wide range of requests and queries easily.

Also worth noting is that the HomePod doesn't now have the capability to support multiple speakers, but that functionality is apparently coming later this year.

"You can play any music or audio through the HomePod from your iPhone or iPad via AirPlay", said Martin.

There's a lot riding on that assessment. Plus, the speaker is a potential big deal for AAPL stock.

Here is something that you do not see every day on a smart speaker.

Like all smart speakers, your primarily interact with the HomePod via voice control.

To put all of that into context, the HomePod just might be the best-sounding smart speaker I've tested.

United Kingdom and Ireland in push to break Northern Ireland deadlock
Varadkar said on Twitter that the two governments held "constructive talks on restoring power-sharing and Brexit". Such hopes proved unfounded, but all parties said an accord was in sight.

Apple hasn't had an easy run in the speaker market till now.

The Sonos One, by high-end audio equipment maker Sonos, not only provides superior sound to the standard smart speaker, but it also comes with Amazon's Alexa built inside, giving users access to Alexa's wide range of skills. The HomePod is, first and foremost, a speaker created to play music in your home. The Sonos One sounds nearly as good as the HomePod on most songs and, actually, slight better on others.

But Consumer Reports doesn't agree that's how it turned out. I expected the highs to fall apart at higher volumes like they do on the Echo and Google Home, but was surprised at how well HomePod preserved it all. Reviewers gave the HomePod audio a "Very Good" rating. The review also noted that while the HomePod would "serve many music fans well", there were some "flaws" like the way it projects bass sounds, which were "a bit boomy and overemphasized".

It's slightly "muddy" sound placed it behind the Google Home Max, however.

HomePod is probably the best Home speakers available in market. Power on the HomePod and hold your iOS device close to it, in a few taps you're ready to rock n roll.

But many of those have been subjective reviews, in a home environment without reference speakers to compare against. Apple products work great with the HomePod.

Meanwhile, the other smart assistants were able to do much better.
