HomePod Mini Now Rumored to Launch in Seven Countries, Including Denmark and Norway

Over the weekend, it was reported that Apple has been testing Swedish language support for Siri on the HomePod mini for at least two months, and now further reports claim that testing is also underway for Danish and Norwegian.

Based on these reports, it's likely that Apple is planning to launch the HomePod mini in several Nordic countries this year, including Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. Siri already supports Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian on iOS, but Apple is still testing these languages on the HomePod mini to ensure it provides the best experience possible.

It's also likely that Apple will release the HomePod mini in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Russia this year, as the speaker gained support for languages spoken in those countries as part of a software update released in December.

The full list of countries where the HomePod mini is rumored to launch this year so far:

  • Belgium
  • The Netherlands
  • Switzerland
  • Russia
  • Sweden
  • Denmark
  • Norway

First released in October 2020, the HomePod mini is currently available in the United States, Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

Apple began offering the HomePod mini in yellow, orange, and blue colors in November 2021.

Why doesn’t apple simply release them in all the countries at once…?
They've just found out more countries exist, thanks to the Apple U.S. Maps team for leading the way!

Must take a long time to program “Hmm not sure about that, but here’s what I found on the web” into all those languages.

I love the air transfer to them from my iPhone, but a smart assistant this speaker ain’t.

Why not Finland? Usually all the Nordic countries get the same release schedule.
The bass in HomePods is too weak for heavy metal.
