Apple has finally come out with a their own home speaker and it is everything we hoped for.

Apple HomePod is a very powerful speaker that pretty much follows the same concept of other home speakers for Google and Amazon. HomePod has powerful speakers and actually adapts to wherever it is playing. Just like any other speaker it plays music.  Apple Music works with HomePod to give you access for up to 40 million songs right in the comfort of your home - one of the world’s largest music catalogs.
