The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has published a new Apple patent application describing an unusual audio system. In fact, Apple has patented speakers with integrated cooling system.
The company noted that many audio systems can include many electronic components in a small form factor. For example, microphones, various sensors, processors, memory, etc. However, due to the nature of its purpose, audio systems, unlike computers, are devoid of cooling fans. After all, they do not need extra noise.

That is why Apple suggested using special speakers that will also cool the entire device.
In principle, the company can install such a system in the new compact HomePod column. However, so far this is only a patent, and we have no evidence of the implementation of the invention in devices.
