Get a Black Friday bargain on Apple’s HomePod mini, the best smart speaker for iPhone owners

Black Friday has delivered yet another great bargain on an Apple product, this time cutting £20 off the price of the HomePod mini smart speaker. While historically, this excellent speaker has been offered for this price before – and, indeed, slightly lower – it's enough of a rarity that this discount is still worth talking about.

After launching for £99, the HomePod mini eventually saw its price drop to £89. Now, with this Black Friday deal, it's being offered for just £69. Considering how much this smart speaker gets right, we think that's a real bargain.

Naturally, the most pressing concern with any form of speaker is how good the sound quality is, and on this front, the HomePod mini most certainly does not disappoint. In fact, that may be putting it lightly.

While the mini can't do automatic room EQ like the original HomePod, it is able to analyse what type of content is being played in real time and adjust the output accordingly. The results are impressive, with the speaker producing strong, detailed and balanced sound, no matter what content you choose to play.

As this is an Apple product, playing music, answering questions and controlling smart home tech like lightbulbs and plugs is all handled by Siri. Naturally, integration with other Apple products is excellent.

Ask the HomePod mini for directions, for example, and those will sync to your iPhone next time you open Apple Maps. You can also transcribe notes, add reminders or tasks, and call or send messages to your contacts.

The downside to all this connectivity is that the HomePod Mini is only really worth buying if you already own other Apple products. Indeed, you'll need an iPhone or iPad to set the speaker up in the first place, so Android users are better off with an Alexa or Google Assistant speaker.

For connecting to your iPhone or streaming from Apple Music, however, the HomePod mini is an exceptional smart speaker, and a real bargain at this price.
