Apple likely to debut Siri based speaker at WWDC in June.JPG

MacRumors reports that according to well-sourced Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple’s rumoured Siri-based rival to Amazon’s Echo speaker has an “over 50% chance” of being announced at Apple’s WWDC, which takes place from June 5 to June 9.

Kuo expects the device to launch in the second half of the year, and that it will be priced higher than the $179 that the Amazon Echo costs. Kuo says that it will support AirPlay, with “excellent acoustics performance” thanks to seven tweeters and one woofer. The speakers will be supplied by Taiwan-based Iventec exclusively, according to Kuo. What Kuo refers to as “Apple’s first home AI product” will have computing power similar to that of the iPhone 6/6s. He adds that it is most likely aimed at the high-end market, with an emphasis on an enhanced entertainment experience.

This report from Kuo follows on from Sonny Dickson’s information that we reported on last week, which first mentioned Apple might announce the device at this year’s WWDC.
