HomePod Mini Repair Fee is Only $20 Cheaper Than Buying a New One Without AppleCare+
Ahead of the HomePod mini launching next week, Apple has revealed that it will charge a fee of $79 to service the speaker for customers without AppleCare+ coverage. This is only $20 cheaper than buying an entirely new HomePod mini for $99.
By comparison, AppleCare+ for the HomePod mini involves a $15 upfront cost and an additional $15 per-incident fee for up to two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months. Ultimately, if you damage your HomePod mini and need it serviced, it will cost you $30 with AppleCare+ or $79 without in the United States.
While many customers may find AppleCare+ unnecessary for the HomePod mini, those with pets or young children may want to consider purchasing coverage.
HomePod mini pre-orders began November 6, and the speaker launches Monday, November 16.

So much for caring for the environment.
But don't worry, the ice caps are doing good because we didn't get a charger with our new iPhones.
