Apple hires senior audio engineer, to lead software development for HomePod.

According to Bloomberg, Apple has hired Afrooz Family, a former HomePod engineer, as head of the software team developing HomePod. This might indicate that Apple is once again attempting to make the HomePod more competitive.

After Apple, where he was a senior audio engineer, Joe began co-founding Syng with ex-Apple designer Christopher Stringer in 2016.

The first HomePod, which was released in 2018, was praised for its audio quality but criticized for being too costly, and it was discontinued in March.
