Update: The story has been updated to reflect that the HomePod mini is now available in Italy. Not only that, but all countries that already have this product, can choose these new colors.

Earlier this month, Apple started selling the HomePod mini in three new colors in the US. Now, the company is expanding the availability of these options to Australia and New Zealand as well as making the product available in Italy for the first time ever.

HomePod mini’s new orange, yellow, and blue colors were unveiled during Apple’s “Unleashed” October event, where the company also announced the new M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro as well as the third-generation AirPods.

Then, a week later, the company started selling HomePod mini in these new options in the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan.

Now, Apple is expanding these new colors to Australia, Austria, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Spain, and the UK

The HomePod mini was unveiled by the company in 2020, after the release of the controversial full-size HomePod. At that time, here’s how the company described the product when it was unveiled:

“HomePod mini has everything customers want in a smart speaker — amazing 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,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “HomePod mini is the ultimate smart speaker for anyone with an Apple device. It works effortlessly with iPhone to hand off music, answer calls, or deliver personalized listening suggestions, elevates the sound from Apple TV, plays music from a Mac, and so much more. There’s a lot of Apple innovation packed into such a small speaker, all at an affordable price.”
