    Thursday, January 19, 2023, January 19, 2023 EDT Last Updated 2023-01-26T10:21:00Z

    Before releasing the Apple iPhone 16 Pro Max, and after releasing a new line of Macs with the M2 chip, Apple also released a new smart speaker, namely the second generation HomePod. In the future, Apple is said to want to make a smart display to control the smart home.

    This smart display will probably be similar to Amazon's Echo Show and Google's Nest Hub. As for the smart display made by Apple, it will likely be similar to the cheap version of the iPad which can be mounted on a wall or elsewhere using a magnet.

    Through this device, users can control various smart home devices such as thermostats, lights, and make video calls via FaceTime, quoted, Friday (20/1/2023).

    Maybe Apple wants to release a device like this because the popularity of smart displays in the market is relatively high. Like Echo Show or Nest Hub. Although the smart display made by Apple might be a little late because it is reported that it will only be released in 2024.

    However, there is also an option in the form of a home stand to attach to the existing iPad line and turn it into a smart display. Reportedly, Apple is already considering this option as well.

    For now, controllers for Apple's smart home devices are limited to using the HomePod, whose newest variant is now equipped with a screen and has a humidity sensor and thermometer.

    This 2nd generation HomePod still uses a 4-inch woofer driver like the previous version. However, the tweeter was changed from seven to five. There are also four new far field microphones that replace the six used in the first generation HomePod. Then there is a microphone to calibrate low frequency sounds or bass.

    Inside is the Apple S7 system on a chip (SoC) to perform computational audio and make sound corrections according to the position of the speaker and the user. This HomePod can also be paired with another HomePod to make it a stereo pair of speakers, provided the HomePod being paired is of the same variant.

    Regarding the humidity and temperature sensors that are in the HomePod, in fact they are also in the HomePod Mini, which costs a lot cheaper (USD 99), but Apple does not activate them. It is reported that the sensor will be activated on the HomePod Mini in the future.

    This 2nd generation HomePod sells for USD 299, the same as the first version of the HomePod which is no longer being sold, and is available in two color choices, namely white and gray.
