Apple, this time also have to wait six years? The company will not release a new HomePod mini model anytime soon

Apple has introduced a new HomePod smart speaker, but is not going to release a new HomePod mini model.

Apple, this time also have to wait six years?  The company will not release a new HomePod mini model anytime soon

This was announced by well-known Bloomberg journalist and insider Mark Gurman. By the way, he also spoke about the imminent announcement of a new HomePod model a day before the presentation.

After the debut of the new full-sized HomePod, many users began to ask about the upgrade of the younger model. But at this point, I don’t believe that Apple is actively working on such a product. The latest HomePod doesn’t include any major new features that the $99 mini version doesn’t already have, so there’s no obvious reason to upgrade the model. Of course, it would be nice to get more colors, a lower price, better sound and microphones, but the real improvements probably need to be made on the back-end – with Siri and app integration.

Thus, it is unlikely that we should expect a new HomePod mini anytime soon. However, smart speakers in general are quite conservative devices within their class, since there is simply nothing to change dramatically every year or two.

Recall that the large HomePod model changed generations almost six years after its release. And HomePod mini came out in 2020, so Apple may well not update it for another two or three years.

Get your tinfoil hats out: how much more Windows 11 “spy” compared to older Microsoft OS

Get your tinfoil hats out how much more Windows 11

Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.

Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.

The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
