Apple Begins Selling Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker Online and In Stores

Apple recently added a new Bluetooth speaker to its retail and online stores, called the "SoundLink Micro" and created by Bose. Spotted by Japanese blog Mac Otakara [Google Translate], the $109.95 speaker seems to have appeared on Apple's website around October 11, and has subsequently launched in some retail stores as well.

The SoundLink Micro is designed for durability and comes with an IPX7 waterproof rating, equivalent to the Apple Watch's rating and ability to withstand submersion up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. The speaker's durability can resist dents, cracks, and scratches, and the package also includes a tear-resistant strap to attach to a backpack or cooler.


In terms of music playback, the speaker can last up to six hours, and if you have two of them they can be paired together for stereo or "Party Mode" playback. When synced to an iPhone, the SoundLink Micro supports access to Siri and lets you take calls right from the speaker. Bose's speaker measures at 3.87 inches tall by 3.87 inches wide, and includes a Micro USB charging cable.

Two-day shipping is available as of writing for the SoundLink Micro, and it appears that the device has already arrived at most Apple retail stores. For the locations that don't have stock today, many list availability dates later this week, around October 18. Visit Apple.com to check out more information on the speaker, which also comes in Orange, Black, and Blue color options.

You are better off buying a Google home mini than something like this for half the price and more smarter.......

Okay, but you're going to look kinda weird trailing that several-thousand-foot long extension cord around at the beach.

Nevermind it does have a cord which is retarded

The Google Home Mini has a cord because it's designed to sit motionless at home, unlike this battery powered waterproof speaker, which is designed to be carried around outside. And the "smarter" part of the Google Home Mini that you mentioned comes from it talking continuously to Google over a WiFi connection. To be smart, away from home, it'd need its own cellular radio. And data plan. They're entirely different products for different purposes.

Is the Google home mini battery powered? If not, then it is completely useless for my use.
