Customers in Australia and New Zealand can now order Apple's HomePod mini in the newly released blue, yellow and orange colorways.

Availability of the new HomePod mini colors in Australia and New Zealand follows an initial launch in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and the U.S. on Nov. 1.

Announced in October at Apple's "Unleashed" hardware event, the new HomePod mini color options further differentiate the small spherical speaker that serves mainly as a conduit for Siri. With Siri integration and iPhone support, HomePod mini can act as a voice assistant, smart home controller, speakerphone and, of course, a playback device for Apple Music and other streaming sources.

Buyers now have a total of five color selections from which to choose, as the original white and Space Gray options are still available.

When the device was unveiled, Apple promised availability in the first six launch countries would be followed by Australia, Austria, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and the UK later in November.

On Monday, Italian blog iSpazio claimed the new HomePod mini colors would land in Italy on Tuesday, though Apple's regional webpage currently shows availability set for the end of the month.
