HomePod mini now available in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland
Apple has officially released the HomePod mini to customers in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
The speakers feature an Apple-designed acoustic waveguide for a 360-degree audio experience, a three-microphone array to listen for “Hey Siri” commands, smart home controls, and more, available in five colors including White, Orange, Blue, Yellow, and Space Gray.
HomePod mini uses computational audio to provide a rich and detailed acoustic experience and deliver peak performance. To achieve big sound in a compact design, the speaker uses an Apple S5 chip that runs software to analyze the characteristics of the music. It also applies to tune models to optimize loudness, adjust the dynamic range, and control the movement of the driver and passive radiators, all in real-time.
The expansion follows after Apple added Dutch language support with HomePod 15.2, and HomePod 15.4, with the iPhone maker confirming the planned launch after this month’s “Peek performance” keynote.
