Apple is reportedly planning to the updated version of the HomePod mini along with the successor of the larger original HomePod in early 2023.
In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple will reveal the new HomePod mini as a successor of the original, which was announced in October 2020.
However, Gurman believes that the forthcoming new version of the HomePod mini will feature a few more advanced hardware and software capabilities rather than anything “super-impressive.”
Since the original HomePod is discontinued last year in March, there are several rumors that have surfaced online about the next generation of HomePod with the S8 processor and likely a new multi-touch display on the top.
Both new models of Apple’s flagship smart speakers will play one of the primary roles in the expansion of Home accessories to make a home truly smart.
