At the moment, Apple’s HomePod is designed in such a way that the controls are placed on the top of the speaker where users can control music playback. They can also control it using Siri.

One of the problems with a lot of devices is that sometimes you get reviews where depending on the person and their needs, some may like a product, and some might not.

One of the ways that the Apple Watch authenticates users when it comes to making payments through Apple Pay, it is by making the user enter a passcode once, and as long as the watch is not removed from the user’s wrist, it will assume that the user is still the same and will authenticate them for future purchases.
