Reviewers have started to publish their first impressions and reviews of the HomePod mini ahead of its official release on November 16th. The HomePod mini does not seem to disappoint in audio quality, volume, and speed.

The HomePod mini is available for preorder on Apple.com, and is available in both Space Grey and White. HomePod mini costs $99 USD, and ships with a 20w USB-C wall adapter.


The HomePod mini improves on the original HomePod in a lot of ways. Audio quality is very good for a $100 speaker, and Siri is a lot more capable than it was back in 2018. If you’re in Apple’s ecosystem and want a speaker that’s both tiny and sounds good, the HomePod mini is a solid option.

iJustine was surprised by the incredible sound quality, and how little distortion the HomePod mini had, even when the volume was turned up to 100%


MKBHD in his initial reviews of the original HomePod famously called it, “The dumbest smart speaker” but has said that the HomePod mini has flipped the script on the original HomePod.
