Apple HomePod Mini 2, in 2024?

While Apple has just released an improved version of its HomePod speaker, some wonder if the Mini model will also be updated.

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.

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.
