New HomePod Mini Colors Now Available to Order in Australia, New Zealand, India, and Some European Countries [Updated]

Apple today made the HomePod mini available to order in yellow, orange, and blue in Australia and New Zealand, several weeks after the new colors were released in the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan.

The new yellow, orange, and blue models all have color-matched woven power cables, but there's still a white Apple sticker in the box, along with a 20W USB-C power adapter. There are no other changes to the HomePod mini beyond the new colors, and pricing remains $149 in Australia and $159 in New Zealand, including sales tax.

The new colors can be ordered on Apple.com or using the Apple Store app in both Australia and New Zealand with a 1-3 business days shipping estimate. Apple Store pickup is also an option in Australia, but there are no Apple Store locations in New Zealand.

Apple said the new colors would also be released in Austria, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the UK by the end of November, and indeed, several of Apple's regional online stores for these countries are already accepting orders, with delivery in France and the UK being offered as early as this Thursday and in-store pickup from Friday, for example.

(Thanks, Ben Winter!)

While I was at my desk studying in my university classroom, I opened MacRumours and bolted to my locked cupboard and ordered two blue HomePod minis then raced back in time to just catch my next set of lecture notes. It's the quick and the dead down here.

Can't wait for these in Italy. Already sold my Echo. Shame the HomePod never arrived here in the first place.
It looks like the new colours are now available!

Save your money and buy a bluetooth speaker or Sonos. Airplay disconnects 2-3 times a day.
I have multiple Homepod mini's in the house and they connect fine to WLAN without issues and switches easily between users. But we usually ask Siri to start a playlist, not through airplay.
If you say Airplay disconnects often, that usually indicates a network problem. Either crowded wifi channels or an incompatibility in your routers firewall. Some wifi routers cannot cope with mDNS properly or the local wifi bandwidth is limited. Since our household has a lot of Wifi devices, around 20 (including Homepods/IoT) when everyone is home, I invested in one high performance basestation (WAX650S) which covers the whole house with ease. The old Airport Extreme (n-model) simply was too slow (and limited range) with so many devices active.

The disconnects you described I had with bluetooth speakers: Disconnecting randomly or chopped playback, especially during daytime. And the thing with bluetooth speakers is that they usually keep their fix on the last connected phone or computer, and often can't be changed easy. In this household I heard daily curses by anyone, because the BT speaker would not connect again. As always it was connected to someone elses phone or ipad somewhere in the house. And since it did not indicate which device it was locked on to, I had to look on each and every phone or ipad in the house to break the connection. Usually it was always the last one.
But the biggest annoyance though... a bluetooth speaker always needs a phone or computer for the music. The Homepod (mini) does not - it will play fine on its own.

and the UK too ? just order the orange one!
Thanks for mentioning! I was beginning to think this was a really multi-stage rollout from Apple and I’d have to check back for UK availability next week.

Ordered a single ? earlier today after seeing your post. Due to be delivered free on Friday. (Will likely be back for a ? before long!)

It’s so strange it wasn’t released to Australia at first. Since they are ahead of U.S. Good news for the people in Australia.

@LFC2020 you ordering one?
