Rumored Siri/AirPlay device to use a variant of iOS, MacPro-like case & Beats tech

After claiming on Twitter yesterday that Apple is currently working on finalizing the designs for its Echo rival that’s “expected to be marketed as a Siri/AirPlay device,” Australian leakster Sonny Dickson shared with MacRumors and on Twitter additional details about the device. It will allegedly run a version of iOS and include some form of Beats technology.

“It is believed to carry some form of Beats technology,” he wrote on Twitter.

The device should feature a MacPro-like concave top with built-in controls, with a speaker mesh portion covering it all. Sonny’s source, which he claims is “someone inside Apple,” has described the device as “fat”.

It’s said to take design cues from UE BOOM’s mesh styling.

Allegedly codenamed “B238” internally, the gizmo could be formally announced at WWDC this June, he was told. Sonny previously claimed iOS 10.3 beta 1 would feature a Theater Mode, which eventually made its debut in watchOS 3.2.
