Apple is expected to release the second generation HomePod and HomePod mini in Israel soon

- The second generation of HomePod and the HomePod mini are expected to be available in Israel soon. The iOS 16.6 Release Candidate now supports Siri on the HomePod in Hebrew, indicating an imminent launch. - The speakers will be sold through authorized resellers in Israel since Apple does not have an online store or retail stores in the country. According to the Israeli website The Verifier, Apple is currently testing Hebrew support for Siri on the HomePod with selected users in Israel. The company has done similar tests in some other countries before officially launching the speakers there. It's unclear exactly when the HomePod will be available in Israel, but availability is likely to begin in the coming months. The HomePod mini was first introduced in October 2020 in the United States and selected other countries and has not received any major hardware upgrades since then. New color options were introduced in November 2021, and this year the speaker's temperature and humidity sensor was activated. The second generation of HomePod was introduced in January, almost two years after Apple discontinued the original model. Apple has already launched the HomePod and HomePod mini in Chile, Singapore, and Denmark this year, as well as in Finland, Norway, Sweden, and South Africa at the end of last year.
