To me, “AirPlay 2” is the biggest highlight of iOS 11.4 that has just been rolled out with several high-profile features. Following the launch of this highly awaited feature, Apple has added a new section on its HomeKit site and listed out the upcoming AirPlay 2 compatible speakers.
So, if you are planning to buy a top-quality speaker that supports AirPlay 2, you may want to take a peek at all the lineup. Some of the speakers from well-known companies are Sonos, Denon, Marantz, and Naim.
