The Apple HomePod mini is a new model of the tech brand's smart speaker that is focused on increasing access and adoption rates for consumers who might be weary of shelling out hundreds for the larger base model. The smart speaker is focused on delivering exceptional sound throughout the home and is capable of being linked together with additional units for a cohesive in-home listening experience. Powered by the S5 chip, the smart speaker delivers crisp audio in a 360-degree manner and is focused on privacy with a listening capability that will only be triggered when it detects the "Hey Siri" prompt.
The Apple HomePod mini is priced at $99 and also highlights the new hand off functionality that will enable users to bring their iPhone close by to transition the audio to the unit.
