Apple HomePod specifications

The HomePod is 6.8-inch tall and powered by Apple's A8 chip which provides 'real-time acoustic modelling', echo cancellation and more using advanced software technology. Spatial awareness gives the HomePod its location in the room so that it can adjust its audio for optimal performance. HomePod will have Apple's voice assistant Siri, integrated inside the device and will make music recommendations that go inline with the company's Apple Music service.

Inside the HomePod you can find an Apple-designed woofer, a custom array of seven beam-forming tweeters and six microphones.

Out of the box, there is no support for stereo speakers, which means you can't connect two HomePods to make them a single unit. However, Apple has announced that this year a free software update will help you play two HomePods as stereo speakers and also enable multi-room audio.
