Apple is clearly in a hurry to deliver its first HomePod mini. Customers were pleased to see that their orders would be delivered on November 16 in Japan or the next day for Germany. Many of those who pre-ordered their pregnant (s) got delivery between November 17 and 19. So with a little luck, maybe you will be served very early, or even a day in advance!
Some lucky ones have even been served, like this American user who rejoices sure Reddit – he ordered not from the Apple Store, but from Best Buy.
