Apple sees a problem for the iPad in the Pixel Tablet, but it will solve it

It has been known for some time that Apple has as one of its short and medium-term goals to focus on offering better options for the home connected, and the launch of the new HomePod 2 is a clear example of what we say. In addition, for a couple of years there has been data regarding the fact that it works on a smart screen that can be used in homes in a simple way. To date there was competition, such as the Amazon Echo, but things They are getting more complicated for a reason: the arrival of the Pixel Tablet.

The truth is that Google has had good ideas for its new tablet, which of course will use the Android operating system. One of them is the include an accessory -as a base- that allows you to turn the device into a smart screen. And, from what has been known, the operation of this is excellent, offering great ergonomics and access to all the options that the Mountain View company has for the connected home (and that there are many, thanks, among other things, to having of an excellent voice assistant that is far superior to Siri).

Apple has to react, and it is already taking steps to do so

It must be said that at the beginning of launching all the devices considered ‘smart’, the Cupertino firm did not see something to bet on in this market. But things have changed, since there are many who have a good number of accessories designed specifically for it. And therefore, He has started working so as not to miss the train. A clear example of what we say is that it is part of Matter, the standard that has been launched so that there is adequate communication between products for the home -regardless of the brand they are-.

In addition, it has been known that Apple has already begun to manufacture a new product that would look similar to the iPad – come on, we are talking about being identical, but with a smaller screen. It would aim to be an accessory used specifically in the home, which is why we are talking about a smart screen. This It would be hung on the wall by means of a magnetic system, and would have an advanced operating system. Of course, it remains to be seen if it has a base with a speaker or if a direct combination with the HomePod is sought. By the way, in the same source of information it is indicated that it is valued in the medium term to launch models larger than the initial one.

An arrival that is not imminent

And this is one of the problems that exists at the moment, since Apple is behind in everything that has to do with specific accessories for the connected home. Thus, it is believed that At the earliest, the device we are talking about could arrive in 2024. It will be necessary to see if the users have not already opted for another ecosystem (which would be the most normal, on the other hand) so that this new intelligent screen derived from the iPad has adequate sales… not as is the case with the HomePod for now.
