This is, apparently, Apple's HomePod mini

Three has nearly three times the 5G capacity in England that runner-up Vodafone sports- Analysts in one country worry about the lack of 5G signals for the new iPhone

At today's Apple event, the first product announced was the HomePod Mini smart speaker.

It's rumoured that at least one of the new phones in the iPhone 12 lineup will be 5G-compatible, and that there could be as many as four new models shown off, each with its own size and specs.

"HomePod mini has everything customers want in a smart speaker - fantastic sound for listening to music, a world-class intelligent assistant that delivers a personal experience to each member of the household, and like every Apple product, it's designed with privacy and security in mind", Bob Borchers, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing said in a statement.

If you have multiple HomePod Mini speakers in different rooms around your house, they can play in flawless sync for uninterrupted music.

Apple has also confirmed the India pricing of HomePod Mini. Till now, the only Amazon Echo speaker that has locational awareness and smarts is the Echo Studio, which is priced around the larger Apple HomePod. Apple said during the event that Pandora and Amazon Music support will be coming soon.

Scale of UK's coronavirus crisis revealed as wave of hospitalisations hits
Mr Johnson is expected to address MPs later today this afternoon to update them on new coronavirus measures. The number of deaths, Professor Stephen Powis pointed out, would rise to a level "too great to bear".

And while Apple would eventually go on to cut the price of the original HomePod (it now routinely costs $199 on sale), it's still pricey. Apple will also introduce other accessories that take advantage of this new magnetic system, including back covers, sleeves, and much more. That may have been a limitation for many, who may have had their music libraries painstakingly curated on other music streaming apps.

Apple's dinky little speaker is designed around privacy and security, with audio quality and smart home functions in mind.

If you have more than one HomePod Mini, you will be able to sync them up to stream music at the same time.

HomePod Mini helps you get things done at your home by acting as a hub for HomeKit devices. The online booking for HomePod Mini will start from November 6 and shipping wil begin from November 16. With the intelligence of Siri, HomePod mini aims to deliver a personalized and deeply integrated experience to existing Apple users. You just can't use Siri if you have an Android phone or a Windows PC.

Web search results from HomePod mini can be sent directly to the user's iPhone for easy viewing. At just under 3.3 inches tall, HomePod mini fits anywhere in your home. It also has all the same features as the full-sized iPhone 12. It'll be available in Space Gray or White. On the flip side, Alexa supports the most third-party skills of the three voice assistants, though most third-party skills feel more like novelties than must-use features. It comes with volume buttons on the top and is said to serve as the "brain of your smart home".
