Apple’s first smart home product supporting its new AI platform could be a robotic smart display.
Early reports describe the project as a video call system that mimics human gestures with its tilting screen.

Apple Intelligence has got to be one the most eagerly anticipated AI platforms around — even as we get excited about early rumors of Google AI on the Pixel 9. With beta access set to get underway this fall, iOS users are just a few months away from dipping their toes in Apple’s impressive-looking suite of tools for creation, editing, and just delivering quality-of-life enhancements. While Apple Intelligence will come to iPhones and iPads with the release of iOS 18, what can we expect on other Apple hardware? A new report this week claims that Apple’s first smart home hardware supporting its new AI efforts won’t be the HomePod, but a novel… robot?

Mark Gurman shares the theory over at Bloomberg, while discussing the expansion of Apple Intelligence to Siri and devices like the Vision Pro in the first half of next year. There, almost as an afterthought, he claims that the first home hardware we’ll see Apple support in this manner will be an “AI-powered table-top robot.”
