The HomePod, which streams tunes from Apple Music, takes voice commands via Siri, and controls smart home appliances, was originally announced in June at the companys annual developer conference. In its most basic form, the product couples a speaker with a virtual assistant.

A Google Home Mini costs $49, but the company is also coming out with a higher-end version for $399. Under the hood, the HomePod runs an Apple A8 chip and features an upward-facing subwoofer. The speaker is equipped with a 4-inch woofer, six microphones and an array of seven tweeters.
