  • ["Good Day for Dreaming" by Ruelle playing]

  • Hello and welcome back to Apple Park.

  • I am so glad you could join us today.

  • Just last month we were here to introduce some great new products:

  • Apple Watch Series 6,

  • Apple Watch SE,

  • as well as the eighth-generation iPad

  • and the all-new iPad Air.

  • And we've got some more huge announcements for you today.

  • So let's get started with an exciting new product for the home

  • we know you're going to love.

  • This year, our homes have become even more important in our daily lives.

  • So it's critical that the technology we choose for our home

  • provides a truly great experience.

  • When we approach designing products for the home,

  • we focus on three key attributes:

  • First, they must be easy to use,

  • from the initial setup to the way you interact with it every day.

  • And we design our products to work better together, seamlessly and intuitively.

  • We also design them to be secure and to protect your privacy.

  • Because you should be the one in control of how your personal data is used.

  • We applied these principles when we created HomePod.

  • HomePod is a breakthrough speaker

  • that combines precise, high-fidelity sound with the intelligence of Siri.

  • It provides an entirely new way to discover and interact with music at home.

  • And now we want to bring this experience to even more people.

  • So today, I'm excited to introduce the newest addition to the HomePod family.

  • And I'd like to show it to you now.

  • ["I'm Ready to Rock That" by Bonti playing]

  • [volume decreases]

  • This is HomePod mini.

  • And here's Bob to tell you all about it.

  • [music continues]

  • I'm so excited to tell you about HomePod mini.

  • It's an incredible smart speaker,

  • with a compact, elegant design that's perfect for your home.

  • It's wrapped in a beautiful, seamless mesh fabric that not only looks great,

  • but was created specifically for its acoustic performance.

  • On top of HomePod mini is a backlit touch surface

  • that provides controls for volume, play/pause,

  • and even illuminates when you invoke Siri.

  • But the design is just the beginning.

  • In creating HomePod mini,

  • we thought carefully about what you want from a smart speaker.

  • First, you want amazing sound that ensures your music, podcasts

  • and everything you listen to sounds incredible.

  • Next, you want a world-class intelligent assistant

  • that helps you wherever you are.

  • And as our homes become smarter,

  • you want it to serve as the brain of your smart home,

  • orchestrating and controlling a wide range of devices.

  • And finally, because it's your home, you want a smart speaker

  • that puts your privacy and security at the forefront.

  • All this is exactly what HomePod mini is designed to deliver.

  • And to tell you more about how we made this happen,

  • let me pass it to Dave and Yael.

  • At Apple, we have a passion for music,

  • so we knew HomePod mini had to sound amazing.

  • We started by custom-designing every acoustic element.

  • We created a full-range dynamic driver

  • that delivers high output while keeping distortion to a minimum

  • and developed a pair of high-excursion, force-cancelling passive radiators

  • that enable amazing bass response.

  • We also crafted an acoustic waveguide

  • to deliver a consistent, 360-degree sound experience,

  • enabling you to place HomePod mini anywhere.

  • In order to get truly big sound out of this compact design,

  • we combined it with the powerful Apple S5 chip

  • and advanced software which all together enables something we call...

  • computational audio.

  • Even before you hear the first note,

  • HomePod mini is analyzing the unique characteristics of the music

  • and applying complex tuning models to optimize loudness,

  • adjust the dynamic range,

  • and control the movement of the driver and passive radiators in real time.

  • And all this happens over 180 times a second.

  • The result is an audio experience unheard of in a speaker this size

  • and one only Apple can deliver.

  • Now, bringing amazing sound into your home

  • isn't just about breakthrough audio quality.

  • It's also about letting you enjoy that sound throughout your house.

  • Multiple HomePod mini speakers

  • can play perfectly in sync across your entire house.

  • That's great for entertaining

  • or keeping up with your favorite podcast as you get stuff done.

  • And when you place two in the same room,

  • they'll intelligently become a stereo pair,

  • filling your space with rich, enveloping sound.

  • ["Ferris Wheel" by Sylvan Esso playing]

  • And to make HomePod mini

  • the ultimate smart speaker for iPhone owners,

  • later this year, you'll get a new Handoff experience that's truly magical.

  • Using the U1 Ultra Wideband chip,

  • which we introduced in iPhone last year,

  • HomePod mini can understand, with high precision,

  • when your iPhone is nearby.

  • Bring iPhone close to HomePod mini

  • and you'll get visual, audible and haptic effects...

  • [hip-hop playing]

  • ...so it feels like your devices are physically connected

  • as music flows from one to the other.

  • And of course, HomePod mini can play all of your favorite content.

  • In addition to Apple Music,

  • you can listen to all your favorite podcasts,

  • along with thousands of radio stations

  • from iHeartRadio, RADIO.COM and TuneIn.

  • And in the coming months,

  • you'll be able to use services from providers like Pandora and Amazon.

  • And because HomePod mini has the power of Siri,

  • anyone in the home can ask to play an artist, album or track,

  • hear a playlist, or even search for music by lyrics.

  • Hey Siri, play the song that goes, "feeling good, never stressed."

  • Here's "Sunday Best" by Surfaces.

  • [upbeat music playing]

  • Siri on HomePod mini brings you the music you love

  • and helps you discover new favorites.

  • But of course, Siri does more than just play your favorite music.

  • To tell you more, here's Yael.

  • Siri is what makes a smart speaker, well, smart.

  • Siri was the first mainstream intelligent assistant,

  • and today it's the most popular in the world,

  • available on over a billion devices

  • and handling over 25 billion requests a month.

  • And Siri keeps getting better.

  • In the past three years, Siri's gotten faster and more concise.

  • Speech recognition is twice as accurate.

  • And Siri knows over 20 times more facts.

  • Together, Siri and HomePod mini

  • do everything you'd expect from a smart speaker,

  • from multiple timers and alarms to weather reports

  • to answering the random questions kids think up.

  • But what really sets HomePod mini apart

  • is Siri's deep integration with iPhone.

  • Using Siri, HomePod mini can access the apps on your iPhone

  • to send a message, check your calendar, make a call,

  • even find your iPhone.

  • And because of this,

  • you'll be able to ask HomePod mini for a personal update

  • with just a single request.

  • Hey Siri, what's my update?

  • Good morning, Jumi.

  • It's currently sunny and 72 degrees.

  • Your first event is at 11:00 a.m., gallery visit.

  • You have one upcoming reminder: call Zoe.

  • Of course, your voice isn't the only voice in your house.

  • Siri knows that

  • and can recognize the voices of each member of your household

  • so that everyone gets their own personal experience.

  • Hey Siri, what's my first class today?

  • Hey Siri, text Anika, "I'll pick you up in ten."

  • Hey Siri, play my Favorites mix.

  • Okay, Moe. Favorites mix now playing.

  • And deep integration with iPhone

  • also enables a magical experience with CarPlay.

  • Ask HomePod mini what time Target closes

  • and a Siri suggestion automatically appears in CarPlay,

  • so when you hop in the car, the route is ready and waiting for you.

  • With the intelligence of Siri,

  • HomePod mini helps you get things done around the home.

  • Next, let's turn to the smart home.

  • When it comes to your home, you want comfort and convenience

  • without complexity.

  • So with HomePod mini, we've made the smart home simple.

  • HomePod mini automatically integrates with the Home app

  • so you can control all of your HomeKit accessories with just your voice.

  • You can ask to turn down the heat,

  • lock the doors,

  • dim the lights,

  • or even set a scene...

  • [Jumi] Hey Siri, good morning.

  • Good morning. The scene is set.

  • [Garten] ...to control multiple accessories with a single voice command.

  • And if you're just getting started with your smart home,

  • the new Discover Tab in the Home app

  • makes it easy to find all kinds of great smart home accessories

  • to control lighting, security, comfort and more.

  • One of the most important parts of the smart home

  • is communicating with your family,

  • which is why we created...

  • Intercom.

  • Intercom lets you quickly send a message from one HomePod

  • to another in a different room

  • or to multiple rooms throughout your home.

  • Hey Siri, tell everyone, "We're late. Let's go!"

  • [HomePod mini chimes]

  • [Moe] We're late. Let's go!

  • Hey Siri, reply, "I'm just getting my jacket."

  • But what's really exciting is that we've taken it a step further

  • and designed Intercom to also work with your iPhone,

  • iPad, Apple Watch and even CarPlay,

  • something only Apple can do.

  • You'll get a home intercom system that goes everywhere with you.

  • [Moe] Ask everyone, "Who's hungry? I've got pizza."

  • [Garten] The message will automatically play

  • on HomePod speakers throughout the home,

  • and a notification will appear on your family's personal devices.

  • And Intercom messages will play on AirPods as well,

  • so you can always get your kid's attention.

  • Reply, "You read my mind."

  • ["JEWELZ" by Anderson .Paak playing]

  • Intercom helps connect the members of your home

  • in an entirely new way.

  • We're so excited about how HomePod mini

  • brings the power of Siri intelligence to your smart home.

  • Back to Bob.

  • Not only is HomePod mini packed with great features,

  • like every Apple product

  • it's designed with your privacy and security in mind.

  • Nothing you say is sent out of your home until you activate Siri with a touch

  • or it hears those magic words, "Hey Siri."

  • And your requests are not associated with your Apple ID,

  • and you choose whether Apple saves your audio recordings.

  • Personal requests only work when your iPhone is home with you,

  • and all communication with smart home accessories uses strong encryption.

  • We can't wait for you to enjoy the incredible experiences

  • the new HomePod mini brings to your home.

  • It comes in both white and space gray,

  • and I'm thrilled to announce that HomePod mini will be available

  • for just $99.

  • And you can order HomePod mini November 6th,

  • and it will start shipping the week of November 16th.

  • So that's HomePod mini.

  • With the power of computational audio,

  • a world-class intelligent assistant,

  • great features like Intercom

  • and tight integration with your favorite Apple devices.

  • And now back to Tim.

  • Now let's talk about iPhone.

  • iPhone is an incredibly powerful and personal device.

  • It's the product we use the most every day.

  • With amazing capabilities, iPhone has changed our lives

  • and has never been more indispensable than it is now.

  • It's been another big year for iPhone.

  • Ever since its launch, iPhone 11 has been the most popular smartphone in the world.

  • People love their iPhones.

  • And users can trust that iPhone is designed to do all of this

  • while protecting their security and privacy.
