That tweet was first spotted by 9to5Mac and you can find a pan and zoomable version of the Avenue over there, too.
Apple isn’t only promoting its speaker, however. A number of third-party accessories are also getting attention via the new display, including HomeKit-compatible cameras and lighting.
Apple’s HomePod mini seems to have been a success since its launch late last year, especially if you go by the lack of stocks available. The $99 speaker offers sound quality that’s streets ahead of the competition, although you do still have to contend with Siri.
