Why would I want it to track me in my own house.
To auto-pause or lower the volume on Apple TV when you walk into another room?
To have music follow you from HomePod to HomePod as you move about your home?
Just a couple of thoughts using imagination.
Nice features if you live alone perhaps, but I don't always pause my TV when I get up for something and my better half is watching, especially if its not something I am interested in and Im just surfing and reading in the same room.
Apple: Launches a bunch of hilarious, well-written ads marketing how much they care about protecting our privacy.
Also Apple: ... but we need to track your precise location inside your home.
And still there are still plenty of people here screaming "WHY WOULD I NEED THIS!" when Apple launches something new. Give me a break.
IF it works the way it intends then you would FINALLY have room occupancy detection for home kit and smart homes this is MASSIVE and the final piece of the puzzle for proper home automation. Every room can start/stop scenes as you enter or leave a room - ensure heating is set appropriately if you're actually in a room or not, turn things off when you leave that you might otherwise forget. Music, podcasts and even TV shows could follow you from room to room.
I don't understand the obsession with 120hz - I've seen it and it didn't blow my mind or anything. Especially on a phone.
Apple doesn’t make the display panels. Samsung supplies most of them and use them on their flagship Galaxy devices. Not enough panels to do that and also supply Apple with the quantities they require. I’m still bummed about the lack of 120hz, but it time to upgrade from my iPhone X regardless.
I have an ATV 4k in my shopping cart for ages - I may have to pull the trigger. Supposedly, Apple has a new ATV ready to ship for over a year now -don't know what is the hold up.And yet more delays for Apple TV...
And yet Apple still sells the over three year old model at release price. Just painful to continue this waiting game.
sounds like a wonderful product but Apple after adds their usual 38% margin what would be the final price?Imagine a new device that merges an Apple TV into a soundbar with Homepod music functions. it coupled with a hand full of homepod minis could form a mesh network around your house reviving thw Airport branding.
Why be able to start a car with the push of a button, how lazy can people be, turn the crank on the front of the car yourself.Rather 120hz and smaller notch, how lazy can people be, lower the volume yourself.
