HomePod mini shipping estimates move into 2021
Shipping estimates for the HomePod mini have slipped into January across Europe, with customers ordering online or through the Apple Store app shown delivery dates between five to six weeks, and in some cases six and seven weeks.
Reported by MacRumors who conducted stock checks online in United Kingdom, France, Germany and Spain, with the exception of the U.S. and India, global stocks of the HomePod mini appear to be low, which will come as a disappointment for shoppers intending to purchase the speaker for the holidays.
The $99 HomePod mini went on sale earlier this month and is a smaller version of Apple’s first-generation HomePod.
Standing at 3.3 inches tall, the speaker is touted as offering “breakthrough audio quality” wherever it is placed, with Siri allowing users to control their music, send messages, make calls, get directions, check the weather, set alarms, timers, and more with their voice.
The Apple Post reported earlier this month that Apple’s Apple Watch Solo Loop bands are also now unavailable until January, in both the UK and US.
