A charging speaker dock that magnetically attaches to the back of the upcoming Pixel Tablet transforms it into a smart home display similar to the Nest Hub. Google announced Nest Hub Max during its most recent event.

Gurman stated today that he anticipates Apple will add comparable functionality to the iPad the following year via a docking device that would be sold separately.
