New HomePod Mini Colors Now Available to Order and for Apple Store Pickup

Apple today announced that the new HomePod mini colors, including yellow, orange, and blue, are now available to order on Apple.com and in the Apple Store app in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The new colors are also available for same-day pickup at select Apple Store locations in the United States and Canada.

The new HomePod mini colors will also be available to order in China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan starting at 6 p.m. Pacific Time today, and availability will expand to Australia, Austria, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and the UK later this month — there's no specific release date for those countries yet.

The first real-world photos and videos of the new HomePod mini colors were shared earlier today. The new yellow, orange, and blue models all have color-matched woven power cables and volume icons, but there's still a plain old white Apple sticker in the box, along with a 20W USB-C power adapter.

The new HomePod mini color options are still first-generation models and pricing remains at $99 in the United States.

Apple should utilize the screen more and make a Magic 8-Ball app for these. The answers would be as accurate as usual Siri responses. :)

These are much harder to light.

But mosquitos swarming to the beat is a sight to see. ;)

Made the mistake of getting a white one, then made the mistake of making it a travel speaker. It is now a mild beige shade of color which is somewhat amusing.

Anyone looking to use one in travel, or go portable with it (USB-C battery pack), be sure to consider a darker color! ;) .

I will just my 2 cents on this product right here:

If they freakin included a simple AUX in jack, like all OTHER speakers on the market, I would've jumped on this in a heartbeat.

I purchased a pair to test them out and then returned them during the 14-day return window.

The good:

* the sound is just impeccable
* the size makes it possible to place almost anywhere which makes the device placement flexible.

The bad:

* they are just so limited because they rely heavily on Bluetooth audio.
* They don't work well at all when they are paired with a Mac and the delay is just soooo bad when you are watching video, especially when you are scrubbing through the timeline, makes it impossible to recommend or use on a daily basis.

Apple has been on a trend lately to course-correct most of their products - Mac Pro and MacBook Pros as the most recent examples. I hope they do the same thing with the HomePods, as I would love to use these as what they are meant to be used as - speakers, whether it be tied to a computer or not. I would like to have the flexibility of choosing how to use these HomePod Minis and at the moment, I can't purchase them. They just don't work as advertised...

All it would take is to include a simple AUX in jack....c'mon Apple! Do the right thing! Include an AUX in jack in the next revision. The latest MacBook Pros seemingly have a better DAC, so connecting the HomePod Minis through the MacBook Pro's headphone jack seems like a no brainer!
