Apple HomePod Mini review
Test scoreShow Context
- Home speaker
- Voice control (smart speakers)
The Apple HomePod Mini is Apple’s hope to play catch-up in the smart speaker market, with its larger original Apple HomePod’s sales failing to come close to top rivals with Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa. The spherical HomePod Mini’s remarkably tiny size might be convenient for your home, but can a smart speaker this small really deliver exceptional sound quality, and is its Siri voice control any good? We give you the definitive verdict.
