Vision Pro To Get Apple Intelligence After All, But HomePod Will Miss Out

The Apple Vision Pro is set to gain support for the Apple Intelligence Siri upgrades and beyond, according to a new report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.

The report comes after Apple made no reference to its spatial computer when it announced the new Apple Intelligence features at WWDC on June 10. However, owners of HomePod smart speakers who might have expected Siri upgrades to be in the works look set to be left disappointed.

Gurman was writing in his weekly Power On newsletter when he said that Apple Vision Pro is on Apple’s roadmap for the Apple Intelligence launch, thanks in part to the processing power that is available thanks to the Mac-like chips that are used.

However, it’s a different story for the HomePod and HomePod mini, both of which use older iPhone chips and look set to miss out on some much-needed Siri improvements.

According to Gurman the HomePod and HomePod mini only have 1GB of RAM which will not be enough to support Apple Intelligence after it was discovered that 8GB of RAM will be needed to bring its features to devices.

Gurman also believes that the current ‌HomePod‌ is “too low-volume a product to waste the engineering time” required to find a way to bring Siri improvements to the smart speaker.

That could potentially mean that a future and upgraded HomePod could support Apple Intelligence in the future, but only time will tell if that is in Apple’s thinking or not.
