1 HomePod Firmware & iOS 11 GM Leak
As stated earlier, Apple is infamous for its almost cult-like secrecy about future products and product plans. That commitment to “keeping mum” is what lets the company “surprise and delight.” But this year, things certainly didn’t go the way that Apple had probably planned them to.
Two separate leaks, the HomePod Firmware and the iOS 11 GM, revealed quite a few details about Apple’s 2017 lineup — from Face ID and Animoji to the signature iPhone X “notch.” And it wasn’t just iPhone X details, the Apple TV 4K, an LTE Apple Watch, and several HomePod features were also revealed. Embarrassingly, the HomePod Firmware seemingly spoiled those secrets inadvertently when Apple publicly pushed it out.
