Huge sound in a compact speaker
HomePod mini delivers an incredibly rich and detailed audio experience, powered by computing audio to deliver superior performance. To achieve great sound despite the compact design, the Apple S5 chip in the HomePod mini runs advanced software to analyze the unique characteristics of music. In addition, complex tuning models are applied to improve loudness, adjust dynamic range, control motor, and passive speaker movement in real time. The HomePod mini features a full-range speaker, high-quality neodymium magnets, and a pair of passive force-cancelling speakers that deliver deep bass and clear, high frequencies.
The Apple-designed audio frequency divider directs the audio flow down and out at the bottom of the speaker – creating a 360-degree listening experience. Not only does this design preserve sound and clarity, but it makes it easier for users to place the HomePod mini anywhere in the room and enjoy amazing sound from every angle. When the HomePod mini is placed in multiple rooms, users can play the same music in perfect sync throughout the house, or play a different song in each room. Placing two HomePod Mini speakers in the same room creates a stereo pair of speakers for a more immersive listening experience. A three-microphone array hears “Hey Siri,” while the fourth, inward-facing microphone cancels out noise from the speaker so Siri can easily hear voice requests — even when the music is loud.
Apple Music on HomePod mini
HomePod mini is designed to work with Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and thousands of radio stations including the award-winning Apple Music broadcaster and popular music services like Deezer — keeping everyone entertained. Apple Music offers over 90 million songs, all curated by global experts and thought leaders, thousands of curated playlists, and more than 25,000 exclusive radio episodes and other original content.
Home entertainment with Apple TV
Combined with Apple TV 4K, HomePod mini delivers a powerful audio experience with a wide range. Using computational audio, HomePod mini constantly analyzes audio and tweaks performance to deliver crystal-clear dialogue. Together, Siri and HomePod mini open up new ways to interact with your Apple TV. For example, users can ask Siri to turn on the Apple TV, start a show or movie, and control hands-free playback.
The ultimate smart speaker for iPhone users
When listening to music, a podcast, or a phone call, you can seamlessly transfer audio by holding your iPhone close to the HomePod mini without losing any sound. Visual, audio, and tactile effects convey the feeling that devices are physically connected, while audio flows from one device to another. When nothing is playing on the HomePod mini, personalized listening suggestions automatically appear on the iPhone when it’s next to the speaker, allowing for instant control without having to unlock the iPhone.
