Now, according to AppleTrack, it seems that these new HomePod mini colors will be available starting next week, with the publication stating that Apple will start taking orders for the same on Monday.

This comes after Apple mentioned that the new HomePod minis would be available starting November, with Monday being November 1, so it seems that this is a likely availability date.

The European site of Apple mentions that the new HomePod mini will not be available until late November, but that is not a sign of non-availability in all markets. Users might be able to place orders starting November 1, but we will have to wait and see.
