I got the two HomePod Mini’s that I ordered on launch day Wednesday afternoon and have spent some time kicking the tires and seeing what they are capable of. To be completely honest, my experience has been a bit mixed so far, but I still like what I hear overall.
What does this mean for Apple’s plans for the home?
I have to admit that I’ve been more excited about some of Apple’s “other” rumored devices than the iPhone this year. While the iPad Air was interesting because it delivers some Pro features at a cheaper starting price, the AirPods Studio and HomePod Mini both sounded new and different.
