The idea of a Sonos smart speaker that sits seamlessly within Apple's ever-expanding ecosystem sounds pretty great, particularly as the two companies share a similar outlook when it comes to marketing its products.In related news, Sonos announced yesterday that it's laying off 12 percent of its global staff, closing six of its twelve global offices, and getting rid of its retail store in New York City. Sonos is restructuring due to "uncertainty and challenges stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic."
Like Apple, Sonos has a strong ecosystem that makes buying multiple speakers a far more attractive prospect for consumers. That's thanks to slick multi-room pairing, Wi-Fi-based wireless connectivity, and a rigid design aesthetic that means all of its products look like they're meant to be used together. Sound familiar?
Apple planning to buy Sonos?
