— August 16, 2019 — Tech

Dual high-excursion woofers, 14 beaming tweeters and 10 ambient microphones round the unit off as a precision audio device for enhancing smart homes.

The conceptual Apple HomePod Pro is also calibrated for office use to help make conference calls as simple and streamlined as possible.
