HomePod Mini impressions: A $99 sphere of Apple goodness


Here are our thoughts so far on Apple's Homepod Mini, the more-affordable smart speaker. Apple's new speaker aims to bring high-end sound quality and Siri-enabled smarts to a smaller and more affordable package. The $99 HomePod Mini will go on sale in November in two colors. It'll connect to your iPhone, iPad and even CarPlay in interesting ways.
