HomePod Apple will get display with a resolution of 272 x 340. It will display the animation of Siri, and the virtual buttons to control the volume and activate a voice assistant. Earlier it became known that the screen can display data about the weather. However, the full functionality of the display is still unknown.
HomePod is running the new Apple A8 processor, the same used in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The column is equipped with 1 GB of RAM.
