iPhone 12: $799The #HomePodMini is here…#AppleEvent
Deep integration with iPhone for #HomepodMini, of course: Ask for a custom update, and it will walk through your schedule. Siri can recognize different household members of course. It also automatically integrates with Home app and Homekit devices
Computational audio: Complex tuning models control the positioning of the drivers and other accoustics to create “breakthrough audio quality,” Apple says. Multiple units will play together (Sonos) and put two in a room and they’ll work in tandem for stereo.
Buy two Homepod Minis and you can use them as an intercom system. That’s kinda cool. If I lived in a giant complex that merited an intercom system. Sigh
That transition for the Apple HomePod Mini, where the camera circles round the speaker into a tiny living room, shows how far ahead Apple is from everyone else when it comes to virtual events like this.
