Reports that the iPads, the tablet computing device of the Apple company, may get a new dimension. The company plans to soon convert them into a smart display and speaker, similar to devices like the Facebook Portal and Amazon Echo Show, reports The Verge. Apple is expected to launch a dock next year to bring this extra capability to iPads.

  •  Can be charged and can be held up as a display
iPads can be placed on a counter or bedside stand .Apart from Amazon Echo, Amazon's Fire Tab has also been given this function. Amazon has shown that they can be held up when attached to a charging dock, charge through the dock,charge through the dock, and act as a smart display. Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who releases relatively reliable information about the iPad maker, claims that Apple will follow this path.
  •  Even Google has started
Even Google, which has been late to tablet manufacturing, has introduced a docking station with its Pixel Tab last week. This dock can act as both a magnetic charging station and a speaker. Also, once the tab is attached to this dock it will have the functionality of a Nest Hub Max. You can also use it to control your smart home devices. The Verge also says that Google Assistant can be used by running Google's Home app.
  •  Apple's goal is the same

Gurman says that Apple will try to use the same technology in iPads. Unlike hand-held FaceTime calls, Apple will try to introduce hands-free calling as well as control of smart home appliances through voice commands.

Assistants from Amazon, Google, and others have overtaken Apple in the smart home space. Being the first to enter the scene has created a favorable situation for these companies. Meanwhile, the company could make a comeback in the US market, where Apple's devices are most widely used. Gurman claims that Apple is also manufacturing devices other than the iPad dock for this purpose. He says the next version of Apple's smart speaker HomePod will have a new display, S8 processor and multi-touch functionality. This will be part of the effort to make further progress in the field of smart home. Gurman claimed last year that the company is also developing a device that can convert the Apple TV into a smart speaker. It is also believed to be manufactured by Apple.

Even last week, the workers were given a bunch of new rights However, Apple was literally shocked by the difference between those who supported and opposed the the union in the voting. 56 people voted in favor while only 32 percent voted against.
