Siri Speaker Rumored to be in Production »

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Alex Webb:

The iPhone-maker has started manufacturing a long-in-the-works Siri-controlled smart speaker, according to people familiar with the matter. Apple could debut the speaker as soon as its annual developer conference in June, but the device will not be ready to ship until later in the year, the people said.

As I said on Connected this week, I expected Apple to push SiriKit at WWDC, and this thing come out besides the new iPhones in the fall. May have gotten that one wrong.
