Apple launching HomePod and HomePod mini in Singapore next week
Apple has announced that it will launch the HomePod and HomePod mini in Singapore next week on Friday, April 6, with customers able to order the Siri speakers on Thursday, March 30.
HomePod and HomePod mini users can listen to a catalog of over 100 million songs with Apple Music with a single speaker, in a stereo pair, and using multiroom audio; or create a home theatre experience with Apple TV 4K. With Siri, users can access a range of music knowledge, and search by artist, song, lyrics, decade, genre, mood, or activity.
Both speakers provide ways to manage everyday tasks and control the smart home. Users can create smart home automations using Siri, get notified when a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm is detected in their home, check temperature and humidity in a room, and use Intercom to send an announcement throughout the house.
HomePod is available in white and midnight — a new colour made with 100 percent recycled mesh fabric — while HomePod mini comes in orange, yellow, and blue, as well as space grey and white. Both HomePod and HomePod mini come with a colour-matched woven power cable.
Customers in Singapore can order HomePod (2nd generation) for S$429 and HomePod mini for S$139 online and in the Apple Store app starting March 30, with availability in stores beginning April 6.
