What you need to know
- Apple's HomePod mini is now available to buy in New Zealand for the first time.
- It's available in White and Space Gray for NZ$159.
Apple announced HomePod mini for the United States and select other countries back in October 2020 and it's proven popular ever since. The small size, relatively small price, and big sound make this a great little smart speaker – and pairing two in a stereo pair really does turn things up a notch.
Apple described HomePod mini's S5 chip and how it makes for great sound back in 2020.
Those in the United States have been able to buy HomePod mini for almost a year now and there are some HomePod deals to be had if you know where to look, too. I'm a big fan of the two HomePod minis I have on my desk and I've no doubt everyone in New Zealand will love them when they get their hands on them as well.
