Apple unveiled new functionality and colour options for the HomePod mini during its surprise product event. The new features and colour options will be available starting next month.
To be clear, Apple will not be releasing a new version of the HomePod mini. In November, it’ll start selling the $99 smart speaker in three different colours: yellow, orange, and blue. The HomePod mini is also available in white and space gray from Apple.
Apple’s HomePod mini smart speaker will be able to handle multi-user speech recognition starting in 2021, regardless of where it is sold today. Auto-Siri volume based on ambient noise has been added to the HomePod mini. Siri now has more speech options as well as the ability to pair with an Apple TV 4K.
