Along with the Beats Flex Apple earphones, the company has also introduced the little brother of the original Home pod smart speaker. With the S5 chip, ultra-wideband U1 chip, Siri assistance, and an intercom function, the HomePod Mini should become the ideal base station for the Apple-friendly home. Computational audio also turns it into a great sounding speaker, also as a stereo pair.
New Apple Home Pod mini is a small smart speaker that can not only serve as a loudspeaker or as a digital assistant for Apple users thanks to Siri but can also serve as an intercom system in larger households and with the U1 chip, which is also found in the iPhone 11 and higher and in the Apple Watch 6, can become an ultra-wideband base station in the home.
New Apple speakers are really quite tiny, it comes in light and dark tones, you can combine it with stereo pairs and of course, ask anything Siri can answer. It should be able to recognize and distinguish different voices and protect the privacy of its individual users. Ideally, it can also be used as an intercom in multi-room audio mode. With computational audio, Apple also wants to optimize the audio quality, even if the speaker will naturally have disadvantages in the bass range due to its size.
