Control all your compatible Apple devices, talk to family members in other rooms, and enjoy full Siri functionality with the space gray Apple HomePod mini. It connects to your wireless network to provide control of, and access to, all of your HomeKit-compatible devices. It will play music, check the weather and traffic, tell you sports scores, control your compatible smart home equipment, and more with Siri. Using a far-field four-microphone array, the HomePod mini can perform the requested task in an instant. Siri can be activated with the words "Hey Siri" or by touching and holding the touch surface. With Siri, a variety of features work across the HomePod mini and other compatible devices for full integration into your Apple ecosystem.

360° Audio
At just 3.3" tall, the HomePod mini takes up minimal space and is designed to fill the room with 360° audio for enhanced sound from nearly any angle. The acoustic waveguide directs sound out the bottom of the speaker to create the 360° audio field for consistent audio virtually everywhere in the room.
Computational Audio
The Apple S5 chip enables computational audio, which processes complex algorithms in real time to help produce balanced, fine-tuned sound at nearly any volume and provide the full, detailed tones of a larger speaker without missing your voice commands. The full-range driver uses a powerful neodymium magnet to deliver deep bass and crisp high frequencies.
Bass Extension
The force-canceling passive radiators help extend the bass response of the HomePod mini.
Noise Cancellation
Four microphones work together to help cancel noise and listen for your "Hey Siri" command, so even if your environment is loud, you don't have to turn the volume down or move closer to the speaker to be heard.
Designed to Fit Nearly Anywhere
The HomePod mini is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric that's virtually transparent to the sound passing through it. A backlit touch surface on the top provides quick touch control.
Expandable Design
With multiple HomePod mini or AirPlay 2-compatible speakers placed around the house, you can have a connected sound system for your whole home. Ask Siri to play one song everywhere or a different song in each room. The speaker also works with the HomePod for multiroom audio and features like Intercom.
Stereo Pairing
If you want to take the sound experience even further, you can connect two HomePod mini speakers in the same room to create a stereo pair for discrete left and right channels and a more immersive soundstage.
Siri Voice Assistant
Whether you need a hand with various everyday tasks, want control over your smart home accessories, or want to hear your favorite song, you can just ask Siri. Siri can recognize the voices of up to six different family members on the HomePod mini and create a personalized experience for each person, so everyone hears their own music when they ask for it. With Personal Requests, Siri can recognize a particular voice and relay that person's information from iPhone apps like Messages, Calendar, Reminders, and Contacts.
Intercom Spreads the Word
With more than one HomePod in the house, you can communicate with your family members using the Intercom function. Ask Siri to send your message to the whole house, or to individual rooms, and everyone can respond. Intercom also works with your other compatible Apple devices, so you can send and receive messages through CarPlay while you're driving, on your AirPods during a workout, or with your Apple Watch while you're running errands.
Designed for Easy Connection, Setup, and Control
Getting set up and staying connected from anywhere is designed to be easy with the Home app and the HomePod mini. When you set it up, it's automatically added to the Home app, and you can instantly control any of your HomeKit devices with just your voice. The HomePod mini can also act as a home hub, letting you control your HomeKit accessories remotely, see a live view from the front door, close your garage door, and lock or unlock doors through the Home app.
Temperature & Humidity Sensing
With built-in temperature and humidity sensors, you can use Siri and your HomePod Mini to adjust compatible smart home devices based on the environmental conditions in your home. Some examples could be having Siri turn on a fan or adjust a smart thermostat. Please note that these sensors are optimized for temperatures between 59 and 86°F, and a relative humidity between 30 and 70%. Also note that accuracy may decrease in some situations where audio is playing for an extended period of time at high volume levels, and the HomePod Mini will require some time to calibrate the sensors immediately after starting up before results are displayed.
Engineered to Protect Your Privacy
The HomePod mini only listens for "Hey Siri," so you can speak freely knowing that nothing you say is sent out of your home until you activate Siri, whether with a touch or with the words, "Hey Siri." When you ask Siri something, your request is associated with a random identifier, not your Apple ID. With HomeKit Secure Video support, the HomePod mini can analyze the feeds of your supported video cameras, detecting the presence of people and recognizing familiar faces, pets, and cars. All the video processing is done on the device before it's sent via end-to-end encryption to the iCloud, so your recordings are only seen by you and those you share them with, not Apple. The speaker also works with your iPhone for requests like hearing your messages or notes, so they're completed on the device without revealing the information to Apple.
Works with Your Apple Devices
Pick up an incoming call from your iPhone, listen to music on your Mac, or upgrade your TV experience by taking the sound from your Apple TV, all through the HomePod mini. You can switch audio playback from the HomePod mini to your iPhone by simply bringing your iPhone close to the speaker. Following a scheduled future firmware update, you'll feel the connection between your iPhone and the HomePod mini via haptic feedback, as well as personalized listening suggestions via your iPhone when you hold it near the HomePod mini, providing instant control without having to unlock your iPhone.
Supported Audio Sources
Apple Music, iTunes music purchases, iCloud Music Library with an Apple Music or iTunes Match subscription, third-party music services, Apple Music Radio or episodes on demand, radio stations from TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and Radio.com, Apple Podcasts, News briefings, and content streamed via AirPlay from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, or Mac.

Apple HomePod Mini Reviews

Works okay

By Christopher
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-26

Integration works well from iPad and iPhone but not from macOS. When initially setup as a stereo pair, it had a lot of problems and I had to reboot daily but seems to have gotten better with recent updates. They get plenty loud for listening to music in my living room but for watching movies with AppleTV I wish they were louder. The worst part is there does not seem to be any way to restrict Siri to specific voices so whenever I'm using them my kids come by and tell Siri to change the music or something, either intentionally or by accident.

Amazing little speaker

The title says it. I am in the Apple ecosystem and also use the HomePod to control smart lights and plugs. No complaints and highly recommend.

Daily use. Big sound. Good value.

Gets used daily to control different parts of the house and listen to music. Great little device with impressive sound. Engineers at Apple did a great job.

Impossible to pair

Bought two of these for my college student. It's impossible to pair both of them to her computer/phone. One will not connect to the internet. It tells me to use the HOME app for more information. And that app has no more information and is totally useless. I'm a longtime Apple customer and am very disappointed at how much this product fails.

Siri is not a very smart assistant, the audio quality is ok, but I primarily use this as a white noise machine and a home hub for my smart devices and it works well for those tasks!

Wasn't certain about this...

I wanted something for music that I could use in my shop that wouldn't be taken over by one of the kids. I was considering another brand when I read a review of this product. Apparently Apple's approach to both the HomePod and HomePod mini was to hire the best engineers to create this product line. After doing the research, and being curious about the sound quality in this product, I purchased it through my favorite store. I should mention that at my house, we live in an Apple world, which also made buying this product a no brainer. When I opened the box, I wasn't certain that anything this small could live up to the hype. I was very surprised while running it through the paces, that it has a very nice sound with the music I enjoy listening to. Is it equal to the quality speakers in my main system? Not really, but it does an amazingly decent job playing my music when I am working in my shop. I feel that it was a good purchase and lives up to the hype.

Excellent
