An orb of meshy fabric with an ear for acoustics, the HomePod Mini is all that you expect from a smart speaker, but only with the magic sauce that you expect from Apple. It features a full range driver augmented by dual passive radiators for deeper bass and even an acoustic waveguide. Using an Apple S5 chip, the HomePod Mini brings computational audio to speakers for the first time. It optimises loudness, driver excursion and dynamic range in real-time. Two HomePod Minis in the same room will become a stereo pair automatically. Using the U1 chip, bringing a new-gen iPhone closer to any HomePod Mini will enable handoff. Amazon Music will also be supported natively and search by lyrics comes to Siri as well. HomeKit with all its automation protocols can be controlled using a single voice command. Intercom is exactly what it sounds like, connecting to all other HomePods and also all Apple devices, including notifications on Apple Watch and even Airpods! Two finishes, white and space grey will be available at a price of ₹9,900 and will be in Indian stores by November 16, along with some of the most important markets in the world!
