Apple’s working on bringing an ‘iPad-like display’ to its HomePod smart speaker

Apple’s HomePod may not be the standout product in the iPhone maker’s line-up, but it could soon be in store for a huge upgrade — specifically, a built-in “iPad-like” display. But you won’t be able to get your hands on such a smart speaker until at least 2025, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims in the latest edition of his weekly Power On newsletter.

Over the years, Gurman has reported on several smart home products Apple has been exploring, including a hybrid device that would combine Apple TV, FaceTime and HomePod as well as an iPad-like smart display able to be attached magnetically to the wall. The company’s been “indecisive” about the direction of its smart home products for years, he said, and while Apple hasn’t made much headway on these other ideas, it is reportedly working on bringing an iPad-like display to its line of smart speakers.
