Of course, all of this func­tion­al­ity will also be pos­si­ble with the HomePod, which is set for re­tail re­lease on Fe­bru­ary 9. Con­nected to your iPhone, the HomePod will be able to not only cre­ate notes but also set re­minders - hey, maybe there’s a par­tic­u­lar in­gre­di­ent that you could too eas­ily for­get to buy oth­er­wise - and send mes­sages. The last of those could be es­pe­cially use­ful if some­one is try­ing to get through to you, but you can’t prac­ti­cally pick up your phone straight away.

An­other rea­son why you might want to place a HomePod in your kitchen is the smart speaker’s in­te­gra­tion with HomeKit. This home au­to­ma­tion frame­work lets its users ac­ti­vate “scenes”, some of which could be par­tic­u­larly time-ef­fec­tive dur­ing a cook­ery ses­sion. Per­haps you would like to, with the is­su­ing of just one voice com­mand, switch on your kitchen lights and cof­fee maker si­mul­ta­ne­ously? This is a very real pos­si­bil­ity with HomePod and the right HomeKit ac­ces­sories.
