Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, always well-informed when it comes to Apple's plans, claimed not long ago that Apple has no plans to release a new version of its HomePod Mini speaker, despite the recent arrival of a new HomePod, two years after its predecessor was pulled from the market.
Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo, battle of forecasters
Predictions recently contradicted by Ming-Chi Kuo, a Taiwanese analyst who is also very familiar with Apple's projects. According to him, a new HomePod Mini will arrive at the end of 2024. Goertek - a Chinese company specializing in acoustic components and supplier for Apple - has already sealed an agreement with Apple for this new product.
As a reminder, the current HomePod Mini has already been on the market for more than two years, so this release timing for a new version is more than plausible.
