Apple reportedly has begun production of a high-end speaker with Siri-based digital assistant technology to compete directly with Amazon’s Alexa-based Echo speakers and the Google Assistant-powered Home speaker. Production is in the early stages, but the device could be unveiled as early as next week at WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference.
