Apple today made the HomePod mini available to order in yellow, orange, and blue in Australia and New Zealand, several weeks after the new colors were released in the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan.

The new yellow, orange, and blue models all have color-matched woven power cables, but there's still a white Apple sticker in the box, along with a 20W USB-C power adapter. There are no other changes to the HomePod mini beyond the new colors, and pricing remains $149 in Australia and $159 in New Zealand, including sales tax.

The new colors can be ordered on Apple.com or using the Apple Store app in both Australia and New Zealand with a 1-3 business days shipping estimate. Apple Store pickup is also an option in Australia, but there are no Apple Store locations in New Zealand.

Apple said the new colors would also be released in Austria, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the UK by the end of November, and indeed, several of Apple's regional online stores for these countries are already accepting orders, with delivery in France and the UK being offered as early as this Thursday and in-store pickup from Friday, for example.

(Thanks, Ben Winter!)

Now go and add all other missing Siri languages to HomePod, Apple. It will instantly create a worldwide market for your failed smart speaker lineup.

It’s so strange it wasn’t released to Australia at first. Since they are ahead of U.S. Good news for the people in Australia.

@LFC2020 you ordering one?
"WTF?!" is what I said to my special friend with benefits on announcement day. We're usually included in the initial releases alongside US and Canada. I was hoping to purchase the very first two blue ones off the production floor.

They need to come out with a HomePod that has a 10 inch to 12 inch touchscreen as well as awesome speakers.

The original HomePod which I own is a great speaker, automated speaker. But thats all it is.

The HomePod needs a high resolution color touch screen.

Totally agree. We have a few Google Nest Hubs in the house, and it’s a great digital photo frame. It would be great to have an Apple version for iCloud Photos, Music, Podcasts, Home Control, etc. I know, Apple would prefer you use an iPhone or an iPad for that, but the market is clearly there looking at what Google and Amazon are selling.

They don’t seem to be available for in store pickup yet, and shipping estimates are saying early December for me. I wonder when the stores will start receiving them.

HomePod is okay as toilet speakers for longer „business meetings“, or for the kitchen.
I don't think anyone considers them for much more than that. If you want to hear good music just buy a pair of Dali Spector 2 and a nice little amp

They’re available in the UK now too! Great news.
Pick Up in Store & Home Delivery this Friday for all colours at a few stores near me!
