SAN JOSE, Calif.—Today at WWDC, we finally got a good look at Apple’s rumored smart home speaker, which has home-assistant features buried beneath a music-first sales pitch.
“We want to reinvent home music,” Tim Cook told the Monday WWDC keynote crowd before Apple’s Phil Schiller revealed and named the new Apple Homepod. The product will cost $349 and launch in certain territories, including the US, this December.
The HomePod will launch in December for $349 and will be available in white and space gray in the US, UK, and Australia to start.
It is the first new device Apple has announced in almost three years. It unveiled the Apple Watch in September 2014.
