Will Apple announce a HomePod Mini on Oct. 13? Here’s what we know

Apple’s HomePod debuted in 2018. It had a $349 price tag, great sound and the risk of putting white rings on your tabletop. Since then, despite some nice iterations on the HomePod’s features via periodic software updates, Apple hasn’t made much progress in the smart home, even as Amazon and Google continue to expand their audiences for Alexa and Google Assistant products across the board.

Apple’s HomePod prices are down.


But according to a Bloomberg report earlier this year, Apple isn’t giving up on the HomePod. According to “people familiar with the plans,” Apple is planning to release a smaller and cheaper HomePod. Details are few, but sources say that the new HomePod will be approximately half the size of the original. It will keep the same design, just on a smaller scale.

Ah, October. Leaves turning brown, air getting chillier, pumpkins getting spicier — or something. And now, Apple’s new iPhone too. That’s right, the company’s next-generation smartphone, likely called the iPhone 12, is expected to launch during an online-only event on Oct. 13 this year with a new boxier iPad Pro-inspired look, faster processing chips and 5G wireless technology. Here’s what we’ve heard so far about the iPhone 12’s price and release date, and a few features on our iPhone 12 wish list that Apple should steal from Samsung.

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During the 2020 Apple event last month, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That didn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay had been rumored for months. Now, Apple is hosting a second virtual launch event on Oct. 13, where the iPhone 12 is expected to make its delayed debut. Here’s how to watch Apple’s livestream.

The iPhone isn’t the only missing-in-action update or new launch we’ve been waiting for. These are some of the things we didn’t see in September, but that might (or might not) show up before the end of the year.

Apple

In a normal year, Apple would have already announced and started shipping the latest iPhone models, but this isn’t a normal year. Instead, Apple still held its annual September event where the company announced new Apple Watch and iPad models, but no iPhone. And now we know that Apple will hold another event on Oct. 13, just as rumors had claimed, where the company is expected to announce the new iPhones.

In fact, it looks like we might see up to four new iPhone models released with shipping dates as late as November. The phones themselves will be faster, have improved cameras, and include 5G

Below we’ve rounded up all of the leaks and rumors we could find, but keep in mind until Apple actually announces the new iPhone, any and all of the information covered below can change.
