HomePod Mini Leaked With Smaller Spherical Design in White and Black

In addition to sharing what appear to be official images of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, reputable leaker Evan Blass today has shared images of what he claims is the widely-rumored "HomePod mini" in black and white.

While the existing HomePod has a rounded, cylindrical design, it appears that the HomePod mini will feature a more spherical design, with a similar mesh finish available in black or white. A flatter top surface will house touch controls for volume, playback, and more, and a large multicolored light will appear when Siri has been activated.

Last week, a reliable leaker who goes by the alias "Kang" claimed that the HomePod mini will be announced alongside the iPhone 12 lineup at Apple's event today, with orders to begin in mid-November for $99. The speaker will allegedly be 3.3 inches tall, compared to the existing 6.8-inch HomePod, and be powered by the same S5 chip as the Apple Watch Series 5.

Apple's event begins at 10 a.m. Pacific Time today — here's how to watch. Follow along with MacRumors for live coverage of the announcements.
