The world of smart speakers is constantly evolving: could Apple be missing with its latest proposal? With a high level of audio quality and seamless integration with the mobile devices of the bitten apple, Cupertino also puts on the table its ace in the hole by presenting a device that has all the credentials to compete with the most popular proposals on the market

The new HomePod mini, presented along with the AirPods 3 and the new MacBook Pro during the Apple Unleashed online event, arrives in Italy in three new colors, in addition to the two already on the market.Combining home automation functions with the company's famous voice assistant, Siri, these small devices with a height of less than 8.5 cm are able to adapt ideally to the rooms of the house, taking up very little space even in the most crowded rooms. Perfect for the iPhone but capable of working in tandem with the company's other products, this series of devices is available in five different colors and focuses on the chip and the advanced software that manages sound reproduction.

Apple HomePod mini, rich and clean sounds

Color? Yes, but not just on the outside. In addition to variations in white, sidereal gray, yellow, orange, and blue, color also takes center stage sonically. This is thanks to the Apple S5 chip, called to manage the operations of HomePod mini assisted by an advanced software system that analyzes the type of sounds and optimizes the power of reproduction and dynamic range.

In addition to this, then, is the richness of bass and treble, clean and crystal clear, to make it even more enjoyable listening. The task, in this case, is entrusted to the full-range drivers and neodymium magnet, flanked by a pair of force-cancelling passive radiators that generate a sound wave that propagates downward, creating an audio experience to 360.

Neither lack the three microphones that allow HomePod to pick up the command "Hey Siri", with the fourth that acts by canceling the sounds produced by the speaker, so as to allow intelligence to understand the requests even during music playback. Music playback is one of the key features, thanks to compatibility with Apple's main products such as Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Cupertino's radio stations, as well as other third-party services that can easily connect to the device.
