When Apple first introduced the HomePod, it was expensive for smart speakers and it never did the way Apple hoped it would. However, it seems that the company could make up for this with the HomePod mini as the data is gradually slipping according to the estimated delivery times.
This means that more units will be ordered that Apple originally expected or allocated based on the units available. That's a good problem. For example, if you were to choose the Space Gray option in the US, you would have to wait between 2-3 weeks before receiving it, while in other markets such as the UK, Canada and France, shipping estimates are between 3-4 weeks.
It should come as no surprise that the HomePod mini may be a better seller than the original HomePod. It's priced at $ 99 versus the HomePod at $ 299. Plus, it offers more or less the same functionality at a third of the price. Given that most people use smart speakers to control their smart home devices, it makes more sense to buy an inexpensive smart speaker, which explains why devices like the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Nest Mini do this so well .
We're not sure if Apple ever plans to release the actual numbers for HomePod mini devices sold, but things are looking good right now.
